Georgette Tsinguirides

Choreologist and Ballet Mistress


Georgette Tsinguirides is German-Greek and was born in Stuttgart. She received her initial ballet training at the Ballet School of the State Theatre Stuttgart. Subsequently, she studied at the Wacker Studio with Mme Preobrajenska and Mme Nora in Paris as well as the Royal Ballet School in London. In 1945 she had her first engagement at the State Theater Stuttgart.
In 1957, she received a solo contract and danced in ballets by John Cranko such as The Prince of the Pagodas, The Lady and the Fool, and in Romeo and Juliet.

In 1960, in addition to her career as a dancer, she became the assistant of John Cranko. In 1965, Cranko sent her to London in order to study choreology (Benesh Movement Notation); she received her diploma in 1966.
From this time on she notated all the major works John Cranko created in Stuttgart. In 1973, she received the „Fellowship of Institute of Choreology“ from the Benesh Institute. In 1980, she was awarded the John Cranko Prize for her efforts in preserving the artistic inheritance of Cranko. In 1985, she was honored with the Order of the Federal Republic of Germany for her outstanding artistic work. In 1987, she received an award for special efforts from the Benesh Institute of Choreology for 21 years of practice of the Benesh Movement Notation. The State Baden-Württemberg honoured her in 1985 and 1995 for her then 40, respectively 50 years of service to the State Theatre Stuttgart and decorated her in 2002 with the long-service medal. On the occassion of her 60 year anniversary she was awarded the honorary membership of the State Theatre Stuttgart. Georgette Tsinguirides has also been honored with the Life Membership of the Royal Academy of Dance London. In 2010 she was awarded the German Dance Prize "in acknowledgement of her services to dance in the international field and especially for her work as a choreologist in preserving the brilliant works of John Cranko and other important choreographers".

Georgette Tsinguirides has preserved John Cranko`s ballets with the aid of her notation scores and has staged them not only at the Stuttgart Ballet but also worldwide at the most renowned ballet companies.
