The non-profit organisation, Praetorian, together with Tobias Ehinger, Executive Director of the Dortmund Theatre, are setting up a support system in Germany for Ukrainian dancers who have had to leave Ukraine.
Currently, there are ten places at the Dortmund Theatre where Ukrainian dancers can train, and the city of Dortmund will take care of their housing and living expenses.
Praetorian, founded by the dancer István Simon, is contacting other cities and theatres to expand the reach of the initiative and therefore support more people.
The Dortmund Theatre is also welcoming musicians, singers, and writers.
Praetorian's website has more information.
The organisation can be reached in the following ways:
