Katja Wünsche

Principal Dancer


Katja Wünsche was born in Dresden and grew up in Berlin. She was trained at the State Ballet School Berlin from which she graduated in July 1999. During her studies she has already danced in the Corps de ballet of the State Opera Unter den Linden in Swan Lake (Patrice Bart after Petipa/ Ivanov) and The Sleeping Beauty (Rudolf Nureyev). Katja Wünsche has participated in numerous competitions. In 1997, she was Semi-Finalist at the Prix de Lausanne and only one year later she won the second prize and got the Swiss Television prize at the same time. In March 1999 she was finalist at the Austrian Dance Contest in Vienna and five months later she won the first prize at the “Grand Prix d’Eurovison for Young Dancers” for a Pas de Deux with Yohan Stegli.

After she had received her diploma, Katja Wünsche joined the Corps de ballet of the Stuttgart Ballet at the beginning of the season 1999/2000. In the season 2002/03 she was promoted to Demi Soloist and in 2003/04 to Soloist. Her nomination to Principal Dancer followed in 2006/07.

In April 2007 Katja Wünsche received the German Dance Prize “Zukunft” 2007 which is awarded each year by the German Association for Dance Education and the German Association for the Promotion of the Art of Dance. In the same year, she received the German Theatre Prize “Der Faust” in the category “Best Dance Performance” for her interpretation of Nadia in Mauro Bigonzetti's I fratelli – The Brothers. In 2007 Katja Wünsche was nominated for the Prix Benois de la Danse for her performance of Clara in The Sandman, a role which has been created for her by Christian Spuck. In critic’s surveys in the magazines ballettanz and Dance Europe in 2006 and 2007 she has been mentioned as “Outstanding Female dancer”.
