The ballet season in Dortmund traditionally starts and ends with an international ballet gala. The world’s most prestigious companies and ensembles are nowadays sending their stars to the Ruhr metropolis, which has turned itself into an important hub of the international dance network by innovative development work. The appearances of high-ranking artists make Dortmund’s ballet galas a breath-taking experience. The programme selection ranges from the great moments of classical dance through to forms of movement and expression that are as contemporary as they are topical.
