A visionary and a strategist – and a driving force in the Munich ballet scene
When she retired from the stage in 1980, her second great career began. She and her husband Fred Hoffmann had already founded the Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung in 1976, with the aim of improving the standard of Munich’s dance training institutions. She succeeded in making the Munich Ballet Academy, of which she was the director, a world-class institution by expanding it into a renowned training centre.
After ten years of investing in dance training, and still the director the Ballet Academy, she was now able to promote her former students within the Bavarian State Ballet. She shaped the Bavarian State Ballet for ten years and was succeeded by Ivan Liška in 1998.
Still indefatigable, she continued to dedicate herself to the Ballet Academy. Her commitment to the art of ballet in Munich culminated in 2010 with the founding of Germany’s first and largest junior company, the Bavarian Junior Ballet Munich.
