The South American preselection for Prix de Lausanne 2018 took place last week (October 4th and 5th, 2017) at the Auditorio Nacional Sodre, Montevideo (Uruguay). We wish to thank our partner the Ballet Nacional Sodre for their help with the organization of this event.
This year, 47 young dancers were candidates for this preselection. The dancers were coming from different countries of the continent such as Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina or Peru!
