The Video Selections jury panel, which consisted of 9 professionals from the dance world, have gathered in Lausanne last weekend to watch all video submissions for the Prix de Lausanne 2023.
There were 429 applicants (335 girls and 94 boys) from 39 countries who sent their videos. A total of 76 dancers have been selected via this process while 11 candidates had already been preselected*.
In total, 87 dancers (46 girls and 41 boys) from 18 countries were selected to take part in the Prix de Lausanne 2023.
How exciting it is to see the high level of the talented young dancers chosen during this year’s video preselection! These exceptional candidates, who will compete in our Prix de Lausanne 2023, will be particularly fortunate as they will be in the spotlight of this historical 50th anniversary edition. They will perform in front of an impressive international Jury while participating in this unique and prestigious event for the dance world. We are looking forward to welcoming them to the newly renovated Beaulieu Theater in Lausanne!
