United Dance Company is an international ballet company led for fifteen years by Alexandre Hoffmann. Under the protection of UNESCO, a dozen of very high level dancers come together for a common artistic project, for ten events.
Between theatre, contemporary or classic dance and original creations, immerse yourselves in this creative and poetic “kaleidoscope”, which reflects the particular language of the world of dance.

Learn the steps to creating a ballet: Costumes, rehearsals, troupe life, behind the scenes of a show, but also places steeped in history and magic such as the magnificent Theatre of Augsburg.

These images invite you to embark on a unique journey in the privacy of the Company through Austria and Germany. “We try to achieve this harmony, this moment where everything comes together… Then comes the emotion which you always want to feel...” Sergei Upkin, the ballet master.
