Daily training is the basis of all dance. It is practice and more: »exercitium« in the true sense of the word. It trains the dancer – makes him grow in body and mind. The schools and techniques for the daily class are diverse. Martin Schläpfer is not only one of the most important choreographers of his generation, but he is also an important ballet teacher who – based on classical dance technique – has developed his own way of training. And of course, also Christiana Stefanou, Director of the Ballet Academy of the Vienna State Opera and an internationally ballet teacher in demand, has an immense knowledge about the daily class work. In our series »Tanzpodium« both will discuss methods and the importance of training for artistic processes and will explain different techniques using various examples.

On 19 March, ballet director Martin Schläpfer, former first soloist Brigitte Stadler, who now works as a teacher and repetiteur, and Jean Christophe Lesage, ballet master of the Vienna State Ballet and experienced in staging ballets, will discuss the maintenance of the historical repertoire of the Vienna State Ballet as well as questions of tradition and reconstruction in the dance panel Giselle Swan Lake Onegin. The panel discussion will feature dance expert Prof. Dr. Stephanie Schroedter (University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna), whose research focuses, among other things, on the development of ballet in 19th century Paris.
