Bernd was born in Germany.
He received his schooling from early childhood at “The John Cranko Schule”, Stuttgart (1990-1996). His interest in modern dance took him to Munich to study at “Iwanson International School of Contemporary Dance”. He then moved to New York to study for two years at Merce Cunningham Studio, and danced with Merce Cunningham Repertory Group.
Bernd was a principal dancer from 2001 to 2013 with “Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, NY” where he danced all the major female ballet roles on pointe on stages worldwide.
Bernd taught ballet at Princeton University and from 2015-2016 he was the Ballet Master at Opera House Graz, Austria.
Bernd moved to Israel in summer 2016 and became Kamea’s company ballet teacher and the main ballet
teacher at Bat Dor Municipal Dance Center Beer Sheva.
“I watched the work of the extraordinary Tamir Ginz and Kamea Dance Company on the internet long before moving to Israel, and was fascinated by the artistry and energy that is put into the choreographies. Getting to share my experience with this strong and fearless group of dancers in the dance studio is professionally a dream come true, and personally an Absolut joy”.
