We love hearing good news from our former prizewinners!

After 10 years spent at the Staatsballett Berlin in Germany, Rainer Krentstetter joins the Miami City Ballet as a principal dancer from this season on.

Born in Austria, Rainer was training at the Ballet School der Wiener Staatsoper when he won a scholarship at the 1999 Prix de Lausanne. He used his scholarship to go to the Royal Ballet School in London. He began his carrer at the Ballett der Wiener Staatsoper and, in 2004, he joined the Staatsballett Berlin as a soloist.

Thinking back to the beginning of his career, Rainer said: “The Prix de Lausanne opened the door to the world of dance for me. I am very thankful for that.”
