Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung

Boarding House

A new generation of dancers under one roof

Our dancers are given the opportunity to grow as artists in a protected and focused environment

The “Prinz-Joseph-Clemens-Haus” in the Herzogstraße 3 offers more than 45 places for young dancers, spread over four floors. The accommodation costs range from 400 to 760€ per month.

There are a total of 45 places in the boarding house. Of those 45 places, 16 are occupied by members of the junior company, the ballet academy has 20 places reserved for underage students of the Ballett Academy management and the boarding house can give 9 places to other young students. A total of 24 underage dancers can be accepted.

The house manager lives on site and is on call around the clock, serving as a primary contact person for all residents. 

Facilities

All rooms are furnished with beds, a wardrobe, desk and chairs, and equipped with a small kitchenette and internet access. On each floor there is a fully equipped shared kitchen. The residents share four bathrooms (each with shower or bathtub) per floor. The twin rooms have en-suite bathrooms.

Facilities

On the ground floor there are four offices for planning, administration and communications, as well as a ballet studio, bathroom and a cosy seating area in the foyer.

In the basement there is a laundry room with washing machines and dryers, bicycle storage and a luggage room. A TV room with sofas is a popular common room where residents can come together outside their own private rooms. In the attic there is a large room with a dance library and space for educational events or larger meetings. 

Facilities

A courtyard garden offers the young people space for outdoor activities. It is frequently used for barbecues and celebrations

Opposite the main house there is a large dance studio – the “Konstanze-Vernon-Forum for Choreography and Ballet” – which also features dressing rooms, a small guest apartment and a large costume storage facility.

Pastoral care 

As well as accommodation, the Heinz-Bosl-Stiftung offers pastoral care and support for students under 18. This includes a wide range of projects that aim to help the dancers develop as human beings and contribute to their cultural integration in Munich.

Our pedagogical approach guides the young people towards maturity and independence, ensuring that they grow into autonomous, socially responsible and highly individual people.  

Several qualified pedagogues support the young residents in all aspects of their lives. In moments of crisis, both the house manager and the director are on call around the clock. Many residents attend German language classes in the evenings or take part in guitar lessons offered by one of the teachers in the hall of residence. We also offer recreational activities two to three times per week, as well as on weekends.
