The best thing about Valdres sommerballett was to see the star dancers on stage at the galla performances!
Student 16 years old
Valdres sommerballett was a memory for life! It was fantastic to meet and to be taught by the best dancers and pedagogues! It was so much fun and really well organized!
Student 15 years old
It was both social and ballet wise on the highest level! You cannot grade one before the other. It was like a fairytale!
Student 13 years old
Valdres sommerballet was a fantastic experience! Fagernes with its beautiful scenery, walking distance to all activities, the very best teachers, everybody got to know each other really well by living and going to ballet class together, barbeque in the evenings and performances. The bonus was the live music of the musicians of Valdres sommersymfoni!
Parents of student 15 years old
Valdres was a fantastic experience! The course opened to new cultures and perspectives among the students from other parts of the country and abroad. We had classes with the best teachers and got new corrections that are so important for ballet. And in addition, Valdres is so beautiful! Because many of the students came without parents, they got more responsible and grew up as they had to make dinner and figure out things on their own and cooperate with other students. I had a great time, and the administration was super!
