ballet for children and young people

At the Ballet Academy of the European Ballet St. Pölten, ballet is taught in the same way as in competitive sports.
The training offered by the Ballet Academy ranges from classical to neoclassical and modern ballet.

From the age of 8-9, the basics of classical ballet are taught even more intensively in the ballet academy's pre-ballet classes. This takes 3-4 hours per week, split over two weekdays. The annual stage performances planned together with the Europaballett St. Pölten in front of an audience play a decisive role in this.

In the academy classes of the Ballet Academy from the age of 10, children and young people receive a sound education in classical ballet, pointe work and modern ballet, which also enables them to switch to vocational training with school (BORG/HASCH for competitive sports) from the age of 14.
The scope of instruction in academy classes I and II is approx. 4-5 hours/week spread over two to three weekdays.
The scope of instruction in academy classes III and IV is approx. 5-6 hours/week spread over three to four weekdays. Depending on aptitude, the teaching load can be extended to 10-11 hours/week spread over four to five weekdays from Academy IV onwards.
Ongoing stage performances are planned, whereby the young students will perform together with the professionals of the Europaballett on the stage of the Theater des Balletts.

The young dancers at the Ballet Academy are taught by highly qualified professional teachers and choreographers from all over the world.
Michael Fichtenbaum is responsible for the overall management of the training in cooperation with the Austrian Dance Council (ÖTR) at CID UNESCO.
