About

The School of the Hamburg Ballet, established in 1978, trains young people from all over the world for a professional dance career. The syllabus gives priority to all aspects of classical-academic dance such as pas de deux, pointe work, classical and contemporary variations, and Neumeier-repertoire. The syllabus also includes courses dedicated to the techniques of modern and character dance and is complemented by Pilates and strengthening classes. A strong emphasis is put on classes in choreographic composition. The academic programme also includes anatomy, music theory and dance history.

All classes are held in the Ballettzentrum Hamburg. This building, previously a high school for girls, is one of the last buildings designed by the famous Hamburg architect Fritz Schumacher. It has been converted into a training facility with nine studios, used by the Hamburg Ballet, the National Youth Ballet and the school. The boarding facilities with places for 34 students is also located in the building. 

Entrance examinations for pupils are held annually each spring. The pre-school is for children ages 7–9 years, the intermediate classes 10–16 years the Theatre Classes 16-18 years. Prospective students are assessed on physical aptitude, rhythmic and improvisational talents, as well as their level of classical ballet technique in relation to their age.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL  by John Neumeier

First and foremost, I am a choreographer. Choreographic visions demand dancers, a group, a company to create and develop ballets. To supply this group with technically well trained artists who understand and "speak" my dance language with their bodies, a school, closely affiliated to the company, was founded. It is the source and guarantee of continual renewal.

From the beginning, I envisaged a company with an unmistakable artistic identity. The extension of that vision is a school which combines the teaching of classical ballet and other dance forms with the practical experience of learning and working with a choreographer. A school with and without "style" - with "style" because it is attached to a specific company and to a particular choreographer, without "style" because the classical training is strong and the curriculum includes a universal dance education, preparing students for the dance world today.

The School of the Hamburg Ballet offers intensive classical ballet training, including pas de deux and variations, complemented by instruction in modern dance, composition, and folk dance. This visionary dance education is aimed towards developing artists, whilst preparing the students for work in a professional company, either in Germany or abroad.

The Ballettzentrum building in Hamburg provides a roof for the co-existence of school and company, offering dance education motivated by the daily presence and inspiration of a successful professional ensemble. This symbiosis of tradition and creation, of ballet "stars" and beginners makes it clear that ballet is a constantly developing and therefore very living language.
