“I have known about the Prix de Lausanne for almost as long as I knew about dance. I am originally from New York and even though I grew up on the other side of the ocean, the Prix de Lausanne’s high-quality reputation was clear to me at an early age. As an adult, the Prix still represents one of the best artistic platforms for young dancers in the world.”
Director of the Braswell Arts Center
Contemporary Teacher for the Prix de Lausanne 2020
Contemporary dance teacher for the 2019 Summer Intensive (European Preselection) in Lausanne
Armando Braswell is a professional dancer and teacher from New York City.
After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in dance from The Juilliard School in 2006, Armando danced with Ballet Theater Munich, Gauthier Dance Stuttgart and just recently completed his final season as a soloist with Ballett Theater Basel.
Aside from his dancing career, Armando has established himself as a guest teacher in high demand, teaching amateurs and professionals worldwide, and has also choreographed for many stages throughout Europe as well as television.
In addition to his artistic activities, Armando is also active in the journalistic field. His popular arts blog, “Interview En L’air“, has become widely known in the international dance scene and earned him a place at “Dance For You Magazine” as a permanent correspondent.
In 2015, Armando began to build an arts community in Basel where dancers of all levels and all body types could train in a supportive and professional environment. This idea has since expanded and in 2017, he and his wife Lisa founded the Braswell Arts Center – a space for innovation and collaboration in all art forms located in Basel, Switzerland.
