Information and Courses

Dear dancers,

We would like to inform you that we have so far received many requests for the Summer School in 2021. As you all know, the previous Summer School had to be cancelled due to reasons related to the global pandemic.

Regarding the 2021 Summer School, we still are not sure if or how it will take place. We hope that it can take place however at this point, it´s still difficult to know exactly how things will be mid next year.

If there are still restrictions mid next year, it may be that only a very limited number of participants will be admitted to the Summer School. If this is the case, preferential places will be given to those dancers who were already previously registered for the 2020 Summer School, and who intend to register also for the 2021 Summer School.

The online registration form will be available on the Junior Ballet Dortmund website from 14.12.2020. The Summer Academy is scheduled for the period from 02.08.2021 until the 14.08.2021.

We are keeping our fingers crossed that you´ll be able to join us in Dortmund next summer.

Until then – keep moving!
