The Changing Room
The next generation of dancers at Balettakademien present their own ideas, installations and sequence of events in studio 1+2 at MDT. The students face the audience with great seriousness, desire, energy and creativity.
Balettakademien was founded in 1957 by Lia Schubert and has since then developed into one of the leading dance schools in the Nordic countries. It is one of the first vocational dance schools that not just teaches classical ballet but also contemporary- and jazz dance. The education on Balettakademien is versatile, qualified, and with an international character. It gives the students the technique and artistic skill they need for the entertainment industry and for dance as an independent art form.

The question is: What do you se when you see us?
