Shortly before the start of the summer vacations, the students of the cooperating schools of Tanz ist KLASSE! have the opportunity to get a taste of the stage. Over the course of a school year, they have been working on a dance theater piece under the guidance of dance teachers from the education program of the Staatsballett Berlin, which they will present on the big stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.


Thus, this piece not only forms a transition from the school to the vacation season, but also deals with precisely this theme in the choreographies. Over the course of a school year, the students became self-creators who developed their own choreographies on the theme of "transition" in order to change their perspective - until now, they have always stood on the other side of the curtain, watching.
