Jul 4, 2018 | Geneva Dance Projects | 0 comments

Russian classical ballet is well known for its unique interpretation of the art of performance. It originated in the 19th century not as a form of entertainment but as a cultural standard of cultivating a new Europe-oriented society. Throughout the centuries traditions of the school evolved and today Russian ballet is widely understood as a way of conduct not just dancing.

Geneva Dance Events, run by Vladimir Ippolitov, a former dancer of the Mariinsky Theatre and a premier of Grand Theatre de Genève, aims to introduce classical ballet traditions to the audience. In June, GDE opened the Kasok Ballet School for children. It is the first School of Classical Russian Ballet in Geneva and a new milestone in Swiss cultural life.

Classes are held in groups based on children’s age and experience. There are currently three options for boys and girls of 4-5, 6-7, 8-9 years old. In the game-like atmosphere lessons on classical dance are conducted in accordance with the Unified Study Program. First lesson is available for free.
