Pictures of our Student Show

Finally, we are especially excited to share a few highlights from our last Student Show with you. We wanted to create a community event where our students have the chance to show off what they've been working on in class on a professional stage in a real circus tent.

They spent eight weeks training, rehearsing, working on costumes and let us be part of it. But see for yourself!

We thank and congratulate Laura, Cecilia, Nele, Doro, Heike, Galina, May, Siona, Natalie, Maria, Sonja, Katharina, Leonie, Toni, Tünde, Ilja, Anna & the kids from the 1st Floor children's dance and acrobatics groups for great performances!

A very special thank you also goes to the audience, who made this wonderful community event possible in the first place with their entrance fees ❤
