The spring gala in May is the culmination of another year of hard work for the pupils and vocational students of the Ballet School of the Finnish National Opera and Ballet. In the coming spring, the programme will feature a combination of classical ballet and contemporary dance. A ballet class onstage will showcase the development of the dancers, from the very youngest pupils to vocational students about to graduate.

The Ballet School celebrates the centenary of the Finnish National Ballet

In 2022, the centenary of the Finnish National Ballet will also be celebrated by its Ballet School. The history of the school dates back to the early years of the Finnish National Ballet in the 1920s, when teaching was practiced within the ballet company. In 1942, the Finnish Opera took over the ballet school, which used to be run by different ballet artists. A systematic approach to teaching was implemented in 1956, leading towards a professional qualification.
