Madison Young to compete in Prix Finals

Prix de Lausanne 2016 FinalistAmong the 67 candidates who took part in the Prix de Lausanne’s 2016 Selections, the jury has selected 20 finalists. [See full list below.] One American dancer has made the cut – Madison Young.


These 20 young finalists will take part in the Finals tomorrow in front of a live audience. These Finals will be streamed live online. Thanks to the generous support of Prix sponsors, seven of the finalists will be awarded a one-year, all-expenses-paid scholarship at one of the Prix de Lausanne’s partner schools or companies, among the most prestigious in the world.


Through the Prix’s Networking Forum, candidates who are not selected for the Finals still benefit from the opportunity to be seen by school and company directors from around the world. Following an audition class, interviews are organized with directors of Prix de Lausanne partner schools and companies wishing to recruit one or more candidates. Interviews with finalists who do not receive a prize are also arranged after the award ceremony.
