15 May / On the summer eve of 8 June, Culture Capital of Europe 2024 Tartu will host young ballet dancers from Oslo, Helsinki, Riga, Tallinn, and Tartu itself, among whom you’ll see Estonian National Ballet soloists as well as young dancers at the cusp of their ballet journeys.

International Ballet Concert Révérence serves to extend appreciation to ballet teachers from all the countries in attendance, to celebrate Ida Dance School’s Anniversary and to dance the ballerinas into the future!

The stage will welcome Ida Dance School graduates from Estonian National Ballet - soloist Ketlin Oja and dancers Triinu Upkin and Ellinor Piirimäe. Demi-soloist Marcus Nilson and dancer Luca Giovanetti will take the stage together with talented young dancers and students from well-known ballet schools in the region: Tallinn College of Music and Ballet, Youth Ballet Fouetté, Riga Choreography School, Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Helsingin Tanssiopisto and Ida Dance School.
Together they will bring to you a rich gala of timeless classics such as Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty and the Nutcracker; Shostakovich’ Anna Karenina and many others; as well as modern and original pieces.

Marking this challenging but beautiful journey from student hood to ballet dancer, we want to acknowledge all our teachers and choreographers; to celebrate Ida Dance School’s 30th Anniversary and to let our youth dance us into the future, where classical ballet will continue to enrich the culture of Tartu, Estonia and Europe.

The concert takes place on Saturday, 8 June 2024, at 6.00 pm in Vanemuine Theatre.
