The 48th edition of the famous Prix de Lausanne end up the day before yesterday, rewarding the Académie Princesse Grace dancer with the Premier prix-médaille d’or and Prix d’interprétation contemporaine.

At the 48th Prix de Lausanne, Marco Masciari won the support of everyone and the First prize in this international dance competition, among the most prestigious on the planet. Open to non-professional dancers aged 15 to 18, the Prix de Lausanne’s mission is to discover the talents of tomorrow and allow the best of them to obtain scholarships in the largest schools and professional companies internationally well-known. A real recognition for the talented pupil of the Académie Princesse Grace which is thus in line with his elders: it is indeed the third consecutive year that a pupil of the Monegasque cultural institution receives the gold medal. And in seven years, no less than 13 prizes have been received by the young people of the Academy during this renowned dance competition. Among these renowned names in dance: Jean-Christophe Maillot, Bernice Coppieters, Asier Uriagereka, Jeroen Verbruggen, Michaël Grünecker, among others. “The exceptional success of these dancers placed under the responsibility of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo directed by Jean-Christophe Maillot, testifies to the excellence of the teaching delivered by the Académie Princesse Grace and rewards the work of Luca Masala, his artistic director and all of his teaching team,” say the Ballets managers. And the programme of this cultural institution continues for the next few days with a winter internship/auditions from February 24th to 29th, then a gala by the students in the Salle Garnier from June 26th to 28th and a summer internship from July 6th to August 1st.
