THE DEMISE OF THE COMPANY
We had to cease our activities in the autumn of 1993 because of the lack of pledged regular financial support during 3 years. This was in spite of the many invitations that had been received for the following year.
This was even more saddening since STEPPING OUT was a spring board for young dancers as well as for choreographers.
A federal professional school still does not exist. All training for professional dancers takes place under the aegis of private dance schools operating without subsidies.
Zurich has launched a HEM project that has started making some headway thanks to the the political and financial support of the Migros Cooperative.
