BALLETSKOLEN, HOLSTEBRO, DENMARK
The Balletskolen is located in the city Holstebro in the western part of Denmark. The school was established 1986 only with focus on classical ballet. It was founded by The Royal Danish Ballet in Copenhagen, who still is supporting the school. The Balletskolen in Holstebro is also a traditional Danish private independent school. In Denmark many parents send their children to private schools with many kinds of values.
The focuses of our school are two: High education in all subjects in the classes and also high expectations in the dance lessons. We ask for seriousness and involvement. The school has 150 students from pre-school to 10th class, so it is a small school with only one class at each level. We educate in all subjects compared to the public school and give all the same examines. Therefore when the students leave the school they can communicate in three languages: Danish, English and German.
