For the last 40 years now, the Ecole de Danse de Genève has been training dancers capable of joining some of the world’s best contemporary companies.

The dance-performer course aims to develop in a young dancer, his/her own artistic identity. Contact with working choreographers is made possible through every student’s participation in the school’s company: Ballet Junior de Genève.
