Our Philosophy

For more than 40 years, the Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung has been instrumental in training new generations of dancers from all over the world.

Ballet is an art form in which great talent must be nurtured from an early age. This is the mission and purpose of the Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung.

The famous dancer Heinz Bosl continues to inspire as a role model for future generations of dancers: The exceptional dancer and star of the Munich State Opera Ballet, who died at the age of 28, was the embodiment of great talent and technique, deep devotion and artistic maturity.

We support the next generation of professional dancers in a variety of ways: 

The Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung funds the Bavarian Junior Ballet Munich, which helps recent graduates transition into successful professional careers.

We award scholarships to the most promising young dancers from all over the world, enabling them to become members of the Bavarian Junior Ballet Munich. 

We build and maintain an extensive repertoire that challenges our young dancers and allows them to grow as artists. 

With our Bosl-matinées, which take place four times per year, we provide vital opportunities for our young dancers to perform on stage. They also tour nationally and internationally and perform with the Bavarian State Ballet on the stage of the Nationaltheater Munich.

We commission new works from established and emerging choreographers, composers and costume designers so that the dancers can experience the creation process in a professional setting.

We provide the necessary infrastructure so that the dancers can fully concentrate on their training: a hall of residence for the members of the Bavarian Junior Ballet Munich and students of the Ballet Academy of the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, rehearsal studios, daily class, costumes and music.
