Junnosuke wins Harlequin Scholarship at Prix de Lausanne

Switzerland - Sixteen-year-old Japanese dancer Junnosuke Nakamura was the proud winner of the 2016 Harlequin Floors Scholarship – now in its fourth year – awarded at the Prix de Lausanne in Switzerland. There are six scholarships in all, including the one awarded by Harlequin Floors, plus the public’s prize, the prize for contemporary interpretation, and of course the unique opportunity to benefit from the classes and the presence of renowned professionals. The Prix de Lausanne is a marvellous opportunity for all the competitors. The Prix de Lausanne once again attracted young, promising dancers from all parts of the world. Sixty-seven of the 71 selected candidates finally participated in the 44th edition, 20 of which were selected to compete in the finals on Saturday 6th February. Harlequin Floors enjoys a long-standing association with the Prix de Lausanne and Harlequin representatives were delighted to attend the 44th edition of the Prix de Lausanne which took place from 31st January to 7th February 2016 in Lausanne. The event also witnessed the launch of the new Harlequin Blog which published daily reports from Lausanne in English, French and Spanish. The blog offered insights into the competition, featured interviews with the candidates, portraits of members of the jury and teachers and a candid look at life behind the scenes. It is perhaps no surprise either that Harlequin dance floors figured prominently at the Prix de Lausanne with Harlequin Liberty sprung floor panels used in the main studio and black Harlequin Studio floor brought in for the main stage.
