Talents from 16 years of age and dance skills according to their age apply to audition for the Dance Vocational Program after they have finished their regular school. The (up to) 3 years full study program prepares them for auditions in state schools or directly for companies. Each school year finishes with an exam week and after having passed the final exam, the student may receive a diploma of our institution. To us, Classical Ballet is the base for performative quality. From there, various dance styles from neoclassical to contemporary emerge for the stage. Our intense, daily curriculum contains not only the traditional subjects Classical Ballet, Pointe/Repertoire, Modern/Contemporary Dance, Academic Character Dance and Muscle Strengthening, but also Vaganova Ballet Methodics, Pas de Deux (if men available), Choreography/Composition as well as frequent stage experience in performances of the Benedict Manniegel Dance Company (Junior Program).
