creating a future for young dancers

Director: Simona Noja-Nebyla

Artistic Adviser: Boris Nebyla

Director Assistant: Shoko Nejime



started in Vienna 2020 as a pilot project for an original education lab in training and molding young dancers intellectually, creatively, and physically, inspiring them with the knowledge & experience of successful mentors, teachers and choreographers. 

Developing new learning and teaching strategies during the last years’ intensive pedagogical movement research, the team is continuously exploring & expanding knowledge through ongoing reflection, practice, and feedback from all those involved in the process. 

STAGE keeps evolving into a personalized dance training program for young ballet dancers focusing on connecting their body structure with classical dance’s functional and expressive movements. 

STAGE bridges the gap between dance education and professional dance life, providing the necessary skills, methods, and stage experiences as building stones for a strong, healthy, and successful career. 

Aim & Goals:

  • personal improvement of technical and artistic skills
  • diversity of interpretation of skills in classical, neoclassical, modern & contemporary dance
  • exposure to the international stage experience 
  • gaining confidence in own artistic presentation 
  • expand the knowledge in diversity of choreographic styles
  • enhancing the health awareness (nutrition, stress management, injury prevention, etc.)
  • consulting for career opportunities
  • (optional) coaching for the Final Exam as “Professional Ballet Dancer”, state recognised Diploma- 2 years needed
