Since the beginning of the 2015/16 season, the Ballett am Rhein has been training and rehearsing in the Balletthaus, built especially for the ballet, in Düsseldorf-Bilk in the direct vicinity of the historic Rheinbahn depot "Am Steinberg".
Through a “Public Private Partnership (PPP)” between the city of Düsseldorf and the company HOCHTIEF, the building designed by the architects Gerkan und Marg & Partner was completed in only 10 months. The company began its work there on 03.07.2015.
The state-of-the-art training facility offers the team, the 45 dancers of the company, and the children of the four ballet classes ca. 3,000m² of floor space, including five extensively equipped ballet studios, dressing rooms, offices, break rooms, and a rehabilitation and therapy area.
Studio 1 is equipped with a total of 112 seats, including two wheelchair spaces, for outreach events. Blackout curtains hanging from an overhead track system and theatrical lighting equipment allow the studio to be quickly transformed into a black box theatre.
