Junior Ballet

Since its foundation in 2001, the Junior Ballet has established itself as the third form – besides the International Opera Studio and the Orchestra Academy – of promotion for talented young artists at Zurich Opera House. At the Junior Ballet, young dancers from all over the world are given the opportunity to enjoy support during the transition between the end of their ballet training and entry into full-time professional life. During an engagement that lasts no longer than two years, they train together with members of Ballett Zürich, dance with them in selected performances in the repertoire, and thus gain the stage experience necessary for a dancer’s career.
