Masterclasses

for young professional dancers and choreographers

These workshops for young professionals are a great opportunity to work with some of the extraordinary companies performing at Festspielhaus St. Pölten. The masterclasses focus either on a special artistic approach, a certain technique or various choreographic tools. But most importantly, they provide an ideal setting to sharpen your skills, really get in touch with the international artists and enlarge your network!

The masterclasses are designed for young professional dancers and choreographers attending a regular dance training or who are currently studying at a dance-university.

Masterclasses currently consist of a maximum of 10 participants. Please attempt to keep a distance of at least 2 metres away from others the whole time you are in the Studio.

Do I have to register?
Every participant must enter their names on a list of those present and fill out a short data protection form. This is necessary both for fire and police regulations and because of COVID-19 safety requirements. Both documents will be available from the stage door at Festspielhaus St. Pölten.
