Helsinki Ballet Academy offers upscaled/high leveled classical ballet education for children, young people and adults. The education is suited for amateurs, people aiming for the dance profession and professionals.
The speciality of the school is rehearsing variations, meaning that the students get to rehearse solo sections of world famous ballets and smaller group dances in its entirety.

Étoile dancer Juha Kirjonen who graduated from the Vaganova-academy in St Petersburg works as the head teacher of the school. Teacher: Boris Jakolevits Bregvadze.
He has worked and performed in leading ballet companies around the world and was promoted to étoile dancer at the Finnish National Ballet in 2011. In the same year he was granted the medal of the Finnish White Rose order of knighthood by the President of Finland Tarja Halonen for his long time service in Finnish cultural life.

It's never too late to learn ballet. Adult ballet is a great way to get into shape and learn something new.
Have you always dreamed of taking ballet classes but now feel like it's too late? Do you feel like you are too old to get into a leotard and ballet slippers? Although professional ballerinas start at an early age, it's never too late to learn ballet. Adult ballet classes offer a fun way to tone and tighten your body while learning the fundamental techniques of ballet.

If you have never danced before, a beginners class would be perfect for you. Beginner classes start off at the very first steps of ballet, so there is no reason to be intimidated. If you are a former dancer and want to return to ballet after several years, you will be placed in a class depending on your fitness and skill level.

Taking part in an adult ballet class is good for your body as well as your mind. Besides promoting cardiovascular fitness and good posture, ballet is very enjoyable by people of all ages. Follow your passion and try a ballet class.
If you feel uncomfortable wearing tights and a leotard, simply wear a T-shirt and sweatpants. Make sure you wear something that allows you to move freely. Welcome to Helsinki Ballet Academy :)

Best regards,

Juha Kirjonen

Artistic director
