This year’s Prix de Lausanne, an annual international dance competition for young dancers seeking to pursue a professional career in classical ballet, attracted promising dancers from across the globe. A total of 67 candidates participated and among 20 candidates for the finals, eight were chosen, which included Lim.
Lim performed a solo variation from the second act of “Giselle” as a classical ballet piece and John Neumeier’s “Wrong Note Bag” for a contemporary variation. Lim, according to the Universal Ballet, is one of the rising stars of Korean ballet, winning various international competitions including the first prize at the Seoul International Ballet competition in 2013. He also performed Billy Elliot in the Korean premiere of the hit musical in 2010.
