BALLET CLUB VIENNA STATE BALLET

The art of ballet is considered to be an important part of our heritage, but it sets fascinating impulses for our present too. People of all ages and all nations are touched directly by ballet. 

For more than two decades, the Ballet Club has been supporting the Vienna State Ballet through non-material and financial sponsorship of young dancers, young choreographers and students of the Ballet Academy. With numerous offers to its members, the Ballet Club is also an important initiative in the field of cultural exchange and networking.

The appointment of the new management – Dr. Bogdan Roščić as Director of the Vienna State Opera and Martin Schläpfer as Director and Chief Choreographer of the Vienna State Ballet – also signifies a further development for the Ballet Club: While previously it was run as a private cultural initiative, starting the 2020/21 season the new management will bring the Ballet Club with its projects and goals under the umbrella of the Vienna State Ballet.

As a member of the Ballet Club, you will have the opportunity to experience world-class dance at close quarters. In cooperation with the Ballet Direction, the Ballet Club offers you exclusive artist talks, training and rehearsal visits, trips to guest performances of the company and other special events. You will enter into a personal dialogue with Martin Schläpfer and his team and be informed more quickly and comprehensively about the activities of the Vienna State Ballet. You will get to know the members of the company, become part of a strong network and, as multipliers, support the recognition and importance of the Vienna State Ballet beyond the borders of Vienna and Austria with your understanding and interest in dance.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we cordially invite you to accompany the activities of the Ballet Club Vienna State Ballet as a member!

We will gladly receive your registration (desired level of membership, name, address, date of birth, phone number) via e-mail to:

Ingeborg Tichy-Luger
Ambassador to the Ballet Club
