Angela  Reinhardt

 

was born in Berlin and received her training as a dancer at the “Staatliche Ballettschule Berlin”. In 1983, while still a student, she was offered a position at the Komische Oper Berlin by Tom Schilling.

 

In 1984, she was appointed solo dancer, and in 1987, she became Principal of the Dance Theatre at the Komische Oper. During her stage career, Angela Reinhardt has performed all the major rôles in both the great classical ballets and the modern repertoire.

 

She has participated in numerous dance gala events, TV and cinema shows, and has been awarded countless national and international prizes, among them the first prize in the prestigious “Prix Fondation Johnson” in Lausanne in 1983. In 1987, together with Gregor Seyffert, she won the 3rd prize/Bronze Medal in the International Dance Competition for Couples in Osaka, Japan, and in the same year the “Bobby” TV award for “Best Dance Couple”.

 

Since 2002, Angela Reinhardt has been a free-lance dancer and lecturer, working from Berlin.

 

To date, in the course of her dancing career, Angela Reinhardt has worn and adapted some 2,000 pairs of pointe shoes.  If you put all these shoes end to end in a single line, it would stretch to nearly 900 metres.
