Results of the Selections 2018
Lausanne February 2nd, 2018: after 4 days of intensive work, 21 candidates have been qualified for the Finals of the competition.
From the beginning of the week, 74 candidates from all over the world have attended daily classes, coaching and rehearsals with prestigious professionals in the field. Carefully observed by 9 jury members, the candidates have all had one goal in mind: to perform their classical and contemporary variations on stage for a live audience at the Beaulieu Theatre.
Their potential was not only assessed by considering their technical facility, but also their ability to give an imaginative and sensitive response to the music. The candidates have had to master the traditional classical repertoire as well as the contemporary creations of Louise Deleur, Richard Wherlock, Jorma Elo, Mauro Bigonzetti or Wayne McGregor.
This year, the Artistic director of the HET National Ballet, Ted Brandsen, is President of the jury panel. As internationally-renowned dance professionals, they selected the 21 most promising talents who have outdone themselves the most.
