ABOUT US

OUR EXPERIENCE

With our experience of over twenty years as professional dancers with Two major ballet companies as Principle and Premier Dancers with Les Ballet de Monte Carlo and The Royal Swedish Ballet our record in the dance world speaks for itself.

We have worked with the world’s major choreographers, and mastered most dance technics during our professional careers as dancers.

Collaborating over the years with dance professional we have gathered a network that is invaluable in the world of dance today.

Over the last 10 years we have taught in the top ballet schools in Stockholm Sweden Including the Royal Swedish Ballet School, Base 23 and the International Ballet School.

Our aim is to create a warm, nurturing environment to maximise our student’s full potential and promote confidence and joy in dancing. We are PVG registered and are members of BBODance.
