The Video Selections jury panel, which consisted of 9 professionals from the dance world, gathered in Lausanne last weekend to watch all video submissions for the Prix de Lausanne 2024.
There were 425 applicants (333 girls and 92 boys) from 43 countries who sent their videos. A total of 81 dancers have been selected via this process while 7 candidates had already been preselected*.
In total, 88 dancers (44 girls and 44 boys) from 19 countries were selected to take part in the Prix de Lausanne 2024.
The video selection stage is always an exciting and moving moment. What a thrill to discover all these young dancers from so many countries! I am very proud to present the highly talented dancers selected for the next competition, whom we will support with all our care and professionalism over the coming months. We are also very excited to invite you to our closing event Rising Stars, a dazzling performance by international dance stars, plus the finalists and Prize Winners of the 2024 edition. A wonderful occasion to let all these young talents thrive one more day on the stage of the Beaulieu Theatre!
