Bunheads, rejoice: The annual Prix de Lausanne competition starts this week in Lausanne, Switzerland! And just like last year, those of us stuck stateside can still get in on the excitement by watching the live stream from today through February 6.
The daily stream promises inside looks at all the dance-y action—think footage of performances from the wings, interviews with teachers and coaches and video of classes and stage presentations. Today's highlights include footage of the girls’ presentations of classical variations—and be sure to tune in for the finals on Saturday, February 6, to see who takes home this year’s top awards.
The elite competition is hosting 69 candidates from 19 different countries this year, including 4 dancers from the United States. Click here for the full list and see if you recognize any names.
