The teaching excellence of the Princess Grace Academy of Monaco, directed by Luca Masala, its Artistic Director, continues to conquer the world of ballet.

For the fourth time since 2014, the Academy has again this year received an award at the prestigious Lausanne competition, and not the least: the Audience Award.

Indeed, Miss Marina Fernandes da Costa Duarte has not only won the hearts of the public at this 45th edition of the competition, she has also been awarded a scholarship that opens the doors to 20 partner companies of the Prix de Lausanne.

It is an honour for the Foundation to accompany the Princess Grace Academy which, year after year, produces dancers of the highest level. Under the direction of Luca Masala, four dancers took part in this competition and all came away with a prize, including two Audience Prizes..

For the fourth time since 2014, the Academy has again this year received an award at the prestigious Lausanne competition, and not the least: the Audience Award.

The Foundation’s scholarship program, active since 2014, has enabled some twenty young dancers to realize their dreams and the Academy to raise the level of its teaching by creating two new positions: a pianist and a school teacher.
