One of the most eminent dance schools in Europe. Their aim: perfection in dance on stage. Prima ballerina. The road to it: hard, competitive and full of privation. Our concept: make perceivable the dialectics of hardship and soft, swinging bodies. And more: open tree studded meadows and - Yes! - an open air stage that seems to grow from the green base of the school building. In anxious expectance of the pupils to come.
