Balettikoulu Sinikello

Balettikoulu Sinikello is a ballet school located in Oulu. It was founded in 1995. This autumn 2019, there are 550 dance students between the ages of 4-30. There also are dance groups for boys called Tiikeripojat, Tigerboys. We also have a group for adults called ”Aikuisbaletti”. It’s for beginners so you don’t have to know any ballet before coming to class! It’s on Saturdays from 18.30-19.30 at Valve.

Ballet classes are held in the center of Oulu, in Kuivasjärvi, in Taka-Lyötty, in Värttö and in Heinäpää.

In the beginning, children are taught the basics of ballet as well as improvisation and dancing through fairytales and playing. Year after year the amount of actual ballet dancing increases. The national curriculum for the basic studies in arts is mostly followed in Balettikoulu Sinikello.

A teacher and the director of Balettikoulu Sinikello is Päivi Koskela.
