Prix de Lausanne Master Class Series

Following the highly successful Master Class Series of 2011, the Prix de Lausanne is delighted to announce a new Series for 2012, offering participants a rare and exciting opportunity to take class with some of the world’s most celebrated dancers – each one a Prix de Lausanne winner – and to hear directly from them about their experience of the Prix and it’s impact on their careers.

The Prix de Lausanne Master Class Series is intended for dance students who :

  • were born between January 1st, 1994 and December 31st, 1997
  • would like the inspirational experience of taking class with a renowned professional dancer
  • would like to know more about the Prix de Lausanne
  • are considering entering the Prix at some point in the future
  • curious to know what the Prix’s beliefs are in relation to dance training today

Master Classes are available through an online registration process, on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, to male and female students who are aspiring to a career in dance. In every location there will be a junior and senior class.

Each class will be followed by a short video presentation showing what a participant of the Prix de Lausanne experiences during the week of the Prix. Following the video presentation there will be a short “Question and Answer” session with the Prix de Lausanne winner who has taught the class as well as a representative from the Prix.

Through its scholarships and apprenticeships, offered in partnership with 29 professional ballet schools and 24 ballet companies around the world, the Prix de Lausanne provides a unique and invaluable stepping stone for young talent. Over the 40 years of its history, 373 dancers have benefited from the award of a Prix on their way to a successful career in dance. Through this Master Class Series, we are opening up the life-enhancing experience of the Prix to more and more young dancers around the world.
