The Dutch National Ballet Academy (NBA) is the premier programme for classical ballet in the Netherlands. The professional ballet school trains talented young dancers at the highest level, bringing their skills up to the professional standards required by the world’s leading dance companies.

Some of NBA’s guest students come from international schools such as l’École de Danse de l’Opéra National de Paris, the English National Ballet School, The Royal Ballet School, San Francisco Ballet School, Canada’s National Ballet School and La Scala Ballet School of Milan.

My most treasured memories of my time at the National Ballet Academy were the occasions I was allowed to take part in productions by the Dutch National Ballet. Performing in Swan Lake was a very special experience.
