The Prix de Lausanne showcases the best of young talents and it is a great opportunity for a young talented dancer reaching for their goals in the professional dance world. I accepted to be a jury member because the Prix de Lausanne is a great platform for young dancers to be recognized, and as a professional I feel it is my duty to reach out and encourage the next generation of dancers.
