Stepping Future

The NRW Junior Ballet presents choreographies by Craig Davidson, Itzik Galili, Can Arslan and Jacopo Godani

With the founding of the NRW Junior Ballet in 2014 Xin Peng Wang once again stressed the importance of the Ruhr metropolis as a valuable hub of the international dance network. During a two-year program, highly talented and gifted young dancers from all around the world get the chance to collect unique (stage) experiences, which are of high value for their further careers. Due to the tight integration into the productions of Ballett Dortmund they not only learn a lot about the professional work at a theater, but they also get the opportunity to show their art and prove their skills to a wide audience.
