Dancers of the Finnish National Ballet

Established in 1922, the Finnish National Ballet is Finland’s only full-sized professional ballet company. Today, it is a highly international crowd of almost 80 dancers, representing 21 nationalities between them. About half of the dancers are Finns, most of them trained at the Ballet School of the FNO. There is also a youth group at the FNB, comprising 10 to 15 fresh graduates.
