About Backstage Studio

Backstage studio was founded in Summer 2003 by Regine Ochsner. After a long lasting career as professional dancer, Regine fulfilled her dream of her own dance studio. The empty warehouses on Hardstrasse 81 were converted into a spacious dance studio. Tap dance, jazz dance, hip hop, and other dance styles as well as many dance professionals have found a home. Every week, students from 4 to over 70 years of age are welcomed.

The broad range of the studio is presented in the regurarly held shows «Backstage goes onstage». International guest artists and workshops enrich the studio and young talents are supported. A professional team, a straightforward appraoch, and a modern infrastructure create a positive dance atmosphere. At Backstage Studio the joy of dance is the spirit. You are welcome here!
