Binklemom, here is the website:

Apparently, 66 dancers began the competition yesterday. It runs through the end of this week (Feb 4 '07). We should be able to see the finals via a webcast from the competition's site.

Do you know any of the dancers, Binklemom? A quick glance at the list shows me that one of the girls is from the Vaganova Academy (Ekaterina Grazhdankina). Nice to see a couple of DC-area dancers representing the USA, one each from Maryland Youth Ballet (John Giragosian) and Conservatory Ballet-Reston, VA (Keenan Kampa).

I know one of the girls from Canada, from Calgary, Alberta. She danced at my daughter's studio up to Christmas and now is training in Boston. Binklemom.

Semifinalists have been selected, including the two DC-area dancers + several for the Royal Ballet school.

The finals are this Sunday and can be seen via internet, on the same Prix de Lausanne site. See the site for details.

I saw James Hay and Delia Mathews at the Young British Dancer of the Year (2006) competition. I am glad they were awarded prizes because they are both very talented.

I also confirm that both are very talented. I was particularly impressed by James Hay who won "Young British Dancer of the Year" competition last year. He was the best among the boys in Lausanne. Sae-eun Park (South Korea) and Mai Kono (Japan), respectively 1st and 2nd place, were more than simply brilliant candidates: they already have that artistry (especially Park) we're all looking for and which rarely occurs in ballet competitions.

By the way, I found the american boy (semifinalist) John Giragosian (Maryland Youth Ballet) very good. Maybe someone knows more about him and the school he's coming from?
