A medley of extemporania;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
And I am Marie of Roumania." -- Dorothy Parker

Dear Ballet Directors,

''ART of'' would like to cordially invite you to Berlin this August 2013.

Our main goal is to create an exchange between directors, ballet masters, dancers and us in order to discuss the challenges that companies are facing today regarding the dance education and experience of dancers at the start of their career.

We would also like to invite you to come and observe classes during our course in order to find and audition new talent for your company or school.

The second edition of our Summer Course, the ART of Ballet Summer Course Berlin 2013 will take place between the 5th of August and the 17th of August 2013 with the kind support of William Forsythe and the Semperoper Ballett Dresden in cooperation with the State Ballet School Berlin where our course is held.

All our dancers have a very high level, are of professional or pre-professional level and are classically trained with experience in contemporary dance.
Last season many directors made contacts with dancers who ended up working in their company.

More information about our course can be found on our website: www.art-of.net.

We hope to hear from you and please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

Sincerely,

ART of
