SIBA - Salzburg International Ballett Academy
Founded in 2004 by Prof. Peter Breuer, principal and artistic advisor of the Salzburg Ballet at the State Theatre of Salzburg and resident choreographer of the Europaballett St. Pölten. Its Summer Dance Intensive, formerly known as SIBA Ballet Summer Workshop, began in 2006, a dance program dedicated to providing a theatrical working environment for dance art, creating and presenting artistic, high-quality productions with various international artists, with the mission of sharing these inspiring journeys with the world.
SIBA believes that dance artists in today's theatrical dance requirements should receive versatile training to produce "the bottom of ballet and the top of contemporary dance."
Dance comes to life through our bodies. As expressive human beings, we carry the power to concretize incredible imaginations and create different types of bridges to connect ideas. If our perception is not aesthetic in nature, it is then a tasteless recognition, merely mechanical. This topic led the faculty of our dance intensive program to introduce specific methods of training dance artists, as each is an individual. Each dancing body is not isolated physically by coincidence because of space; on the contrary, they all are potentially linked, and our undertaking is to assist dance artists in finding those very meanings for it.
