International Ballet Masterclasses in Prague – Pas de Deux – it is always such a pleasure in many ways ranging from witnessing elegance and talent to meeting old friends. Many thanks to Daria Klimentova for inviting me again, and also to Cyril Pierre and Tamás Solymosi.

International Ballet Masterclasses in Prague – Repertoir – Many thanks to Daria Klimentova for inviting me again, and also to Natasa Novotna and Christopher Hampson for letting me catch a glimps of their work with the dancers.

I generally like SOLOs very much as they allow me to concentrate on just one mind – one dancer. Here at International Ballet Masterclasses in Prague it is slightly different…

International Ballet Masterclasses in Prague 2017 – morning classes.

Some preparations, a bit of a stretching and a warm-up before class at International Ballet Masterclasses in Prague 2017 – those who came early secured themselves not just a good spot by the barre but also…

It was so refreshing to be part of this year’s ProART Festival in Chateau Valtice. In this gallery you can find photos – “reflections of its kind” of the Dance workshop lead by Martin Dvorak and Eran Gisin, Acting workshop lead by Veronika Žilková and singing workshop lead by Radka Fišarová plus some photos from the OpenAir performances.

International Ballet Masterclasses in Prague 2016 – Pas-de-deux. It was so inspirational and so much fun thanks to Daria Klimentova and her partners Tamas Solymosi and Vadim Muntagirov.

International ballet masterclasses in Prague 2016 – pas seul. Generally I like to shoot solos very much. Mainly because I can concentrate on a single dancer and it allows me to immerse myself into the dance even deeper.

International ballet masterclasses in Prague –  a morning class is quite an important part of a day for me as a photographer. It may sound strange but it is kind of a warm up – after a morning class I’m usually prepared to shoot almost anything ;-) It is also a good place to refine my technique in general.

It was a rare privilege to share those mornings in Prague with you all.

Many thanks to Daria Klimentova for inviting me there and for helping me with the selection.

btw: I bought a new photo-gallery plug-in so it is easily possible to download the photos now. I hope it will make things easier for you although I’ll miss your messages asking for the photos…
