Who are we

Københavns Ballet Akademi starts on 37th Year from September 1st 2019 to May 31. 2020. 

Approximately 20 Years ago we started to teach The Syllabus from Royal Academy of Dance, and we are very happy to have a system that is build up and give the possibility to have a class for each Year the little ones from 3-7 are. It is also very important not to have too many students in a class, and having children at the same age, they will not get a too big or too small challenge as children develop so fast both physically and mentally from 3-6 Years.

Everyone can dance - and every child must have attention. The speed we 'catch' steps in varies for all of us, but we can all learn it. We do not schold anyone, but we expect students to pay attention in class, and they love dancing, getting nice comments from the teacher and move forward.   

Why are we here

We have quite a continuity at our School. We still have a pupil who attended the first class 35 Years ago, and we really appreciate this. It is common that students i.e. starting at 3 Years continue up to Grade 5 or higher, and Vocational levels. Therefore the students get to know each other really well, and they make new friends at 'another' School beyond the 'normal' school.

Participating in a Trial Class you only commit to that class, and here you will meet other students who love to do ballet. You can bring a friend for the Trial - just make sure that you both are enrolled.
