Harrison Lee wins the Prix de Lausanne, 2015

Harrison Lee, the 15 year old Australian student from the McDonald College of Performing Arts in Sydney has won the top prize in one of the most demanding ballet competitions in the world for young ballet dancers, the Prix de Lausanne.

The video shows his classical variation for the Prix, the solo in the Swan Lake pas de trois.

Lee was one of the six scholarship winners chosen following the finals of this year’s competition for young dancers aged 15 to 19.

The Prix is held every year in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The other scholarship winners were Jisoo Park (South Korea), Mitsuru Ito (Japan), Miguel Pinheiro (Portugal), Rina Kanehara (Japan) and Julian MacKay (USA).

Now, the interesting outcome is which pre-professional ballet school will he chose to continue his training and will he remain in Australia or seek a career in Europe or the US.
