As of April 16, 2022, masks are no longer required in the public area of the house. This also applies during performances. However, in accordance with the current regulation and for your own safety, we recommend wearing an FFP2 mask.
Open Class (Ballet event): Currently, there are no Covid 19 safety regulations, so a PCR test and the wearing of masks are no longer obligatory. However, we appeal to the participants' sense of responsibility to voluntarily test themselves beforehand for the protection of the whole group. You can find more information about the Open Class here.
