I noticed the same thing when I was watching archives of past competitions LMCtech. My teacher insists that Asian students work harder (especially Japanese). I usually just laugh at any generalization like that, but there's probably some truth in it.

I have also been told that they have a greater work ethic than we do (a generalised we I know!) It's also something my mother used to quote at me whilst I was practising (and still does if given half a chance!) Also 'you need some more backbone to put in the place of that wishbone!!!'

Whilst I do broadly agree with the above two posts it is probably also worth pointing out that there were a lot of entrants from Japan (32) and Korea (14). So with 46 out of a total of 119 entrants it is not totally out of proportion that half the finalists and slightly more than half the prize winners were from those two countries.

I'm not so impressed by the high numbers of competitors from Japan and Korea.

Cultural background is totally different and for a lot of dancers, the training too !

The main goal of the Prix de Lausanne is to win a scholarship for one of the world-reknown top-balletschools in the West.

I learned from some Japanese dancers that it's an honour for a family to have a balletdancer. Well, I know - we feel the same way :) - but we are far more sensible about it.
