Porsche Korea (CEO Holger Gerrmann) announced the launch of ‘Porsche Turbo for Dreams-Ballet’ in collaboration with ChildFund Korea (CEO Byung-duk Son), to provide overseas training for underprivileged children and ballet majors showing talent in ballet.

This year marks the debut of 'Porsche Turbo for Dreams,' a new program within the social contribution campaign, 'Porsche Do Dream'. It is designed to systematically provide diverse opportunities for talented children to enhance their capabilities, broaden their perspectives, and support their dreams and passions.

Starting with ballet, Porsche Korea plans to expand its supporting areas gradually. The Turbo for Dreams - Ballet Camp will take place in Stuttgart where the Porsche headquarters are located.

The camp will be open for ballet majors from families with a median income of 120 percent or less, ranging from 5th-grade elementary students to high school sophomores from May 21st to June 3rd. The final 15 students will be selected by auditions held on June 6th. Audition categories are Ballet Class (Barre & Centre), Classic pieces (required), and Contemporary Dance pieces (optional).

Prior to departure, there will be a mentoring program where Sue Jin Kang, a former principal dancer of Stuttgart Ballet in Germany and current head of the Korean National Ballet, will directly participate in.

The camp will take place for two weeks, starting on July 8th. During this time, the camp will offer a variety of training programs, including ballet and contemporary dance master classes of Stuttgart dancers, mentoring from current dancers, and access to watch Stuttgart Ballet performances.

In the last day of the camp, a special online showcase will be held in a small theatre for the children to present their skills. In addition, local culture experience programs are also prepared.

Porsche Korea CEO Holger Gerrmann stated, “This will be a meaningful program for passionate young talents to fulfil their potential on a global stage.” He also added, “We hope that the Porsche Turbo for Dreams – Ballet program will give them the opportunity to become world-class artists that inspire many.”

Applications can be made through the DancePlanner website. Further details are available through the websites of DancePlanner or ChildFund Korea.

Additionally, Porsche Korea is currently providing scholarships through the 'Porsche Dream Up' program, aimed at supporting future generations including those talented in arts and sports, and job-seeking students with low income. To date, a total of 263 individuals have been supported, yielding significant results.
