Dance info

Ballet is an elegant dance style originated in the Italian Renaissance. Ballet technique forms the base for many other dance styles. The classes at Talvandansen are largely based on the Vaganova Method, combined with current insights.

The class starts with a technical warming up at the barre. Followed by exercises through space to further develop your technique and feel of the style. Dance combinations and ballet repertoire will develop your musicality, dynamics and presentation.

Fast Intermediate /Advanced
This class is suitable for students with longer dance experience: advanced amateurs, semi-professionals and professionals. Fast-paced lessons with particular attention for technical training, stamina and learning capacity through long dance combinations. The class is also suitable as preparation for auditions.

For absolute beginners, intermediate students with only few years training, or if you danced as a child and wish to return to dancing after long pause. Lessons in a relaxed environment. Discover the pleasure of dancing while you develop your technical skills, posture and musicality.

Modern or Contemporary dance is the umbrella term for dance techniques originated at the beginning of the 20th century. But new contemporary dance techniques are still being developed.
