Training offer for all age groups in the areas of dance, acrobatics, music, art & mindset

Katja Mack founded the TALENT ACADEMY in 2014. The aim is to offer a training platform for all age groups in the areas of dance, acrobatics, music, art & mindset and to promote them through national and international competitions, workshops & master classes as well as through their own show creations.

Since creativity should never fail due to financial means, Katja launched the sponsorship association "Talent Foundation e.V." in 2017 to financially support ambitious and motivated members of the TALENT ACADEMY.

The TALENT ACADEMY is a magical place for learning and experiencing, not least because of its location at Europa-Park, where creative talents are not only discovered and developed, but also brought to the stage. Highly qualified coaches recognise potential and cater to the needs of the talents. Events, shows and competitions take the practical relevance of the TALENT ACADEMY Europa-Park to the next level.


The five areas of the TALENT ACADEMY

Find your passion in the areas of dance, acrobatics, music, art & mindset!

Whether ballet, hip hop, contemporary, flamenco or any other style of dance, dancing is the hidden language of the soul and a beautiful way to express yourself without words.

When a tumble turns into a somersault or throwing objects into a perfect juggling act, then we are talking about acrobatics! At the TALENT ACADEMY you can get professional training in juggling, handstands, aerial acrobatics and much more.

Music is the language that everyone understands. Whether with cool beats, soft or loud sounds or on your own musical instrument. Music on, head off!

Aspiring artists can give free rein to their creativity in cartoon design & sketching as well as in painting & drawing, while acting and mimodrama encourage a different kind of expression.

At the TALENT ACADEMY, the focus is on people, and in the mindset area we help you to grow beyond yourself.
