Introducing Finnish National Ballet

The Finnish National Ballet is a ballet company of internationally high quality. The FNB programmes both classical ballets and contemporary dance works, with 3–4 premiere productions and 4–5 revivals in the main auditorium each year. The FNB gives some 80 performances per year and is the only full-scale professional ballet company in Finland. The FNB is an international company whose 76 dancers represent more than 20 nationalities. About half of the members are Finnish, most of them trained at the FNB Ballet School. The FNB also has a Youth Group for young dancers.
