Goal of Ballet International
I have always been inspired with the idea of making ballet more accessible to a wider audience. After many years training as a Principal Dancer at The Royal Swedish Ballet, I have realised that the Royal Swedish Ballet is the only classical company here in Sweden. It’s a passion of mine to make the ballet language an artform accessible to all, through teaching and performing. Doing both these tasks with the highest quality. To make it possible for everyone to appreciate this artform.
About Ballet International
Ballet International was established for children not living in their own country in mind. Or, who come from a bi-lingual household. Ballet International is a lovely way for children and families to meet new friends from similar backgrounds. However, the classes are also open to children who would like to practice their English language skills. Ballet is the common language used in our classroom.
The children learn to develop social and creative skills alongside a musical ear, perseverance, concentration and self confidence. The goal of each class is teach basic ballet technique and a foundation on which to build. This includes teaching posture, rhythm, strength, flexibility and body awareness.
