Latest preselections’ success stories

All news

24 Jun 2024

For over half a century, the Prix de Lausanne has generated exceptional success stories that have made a lasting contribution to nurturing and developing the world of dance with outstanding dancers. Our preselections across the globe play a crucial role in this endeavor, providing young talented dancers with the opportunity to showcase their skills to a panel of dance professionals, thereby enhancing their chances to excel and shine! As a young talented dancer starting out in professional career, visibility is key to growth and success.


Latin American Preselection 2023

Before amazing the audience at the Prix de Lausanne 2024 with his beautiful Harlequinade, João Pedro Dos Santos Silva (Brazil) initially participated in the Latin American Preselection in Córdoba (Argentina), where he was preselected for the competition. After participating brilliantly during the competition week, he was selected as a Finalist and awarded a scholarship as the First Prize Winner at the early age of 15 years old. He will join the École de Danse de l’Opéra National de Paris in the fall of 2024.

João is among the many candidates supported by the Prix de Lausanne, thanks to the donations of generous benefactors.

Helping the candidates achieve their dreams

The Prix de Lausanne acknowledges that some candidates cannot afford a trip to Switzerland nor the registration fees to take part in the competition. Since 2008, a special fund has been put aside to help aspiring candidates who ask for our help.

Since then, more than 350’000 CHF have been used to sponsor candidates from Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Italy, Latvia, Paraguay, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United States (among others).

The Prix de Lausanne is extremely proud and honoured to help those young talented dancers through their wonderful journey and wishes to pursue this mission while making it more noticeable and affordable.

Join the adventure, support us as a benefactor!
