History

DNBS was established the summer 2005 by the sisters Siri Aarset Johansen and Irene Aarset Jansson. After some time the elite program in ballet developed with training 6 days a week with the artistic support of Vadim Pisarev – former soloist at the Bolshoi theater and rewarded the title as “Dancer of the year `95” by UNESCO, artistic leader of the Opera in Donetsk, Ukraine, founder of ballet competition “Artek Fouette”, leader of “Serge Lifar” ballet competition and as a choreographer. Vadim Pisarev was rewarded with “The Golden Rose” for his ballet “Peer Gynt”, which was also staged by DNBS in 2010 in collaboration with the ballet academy in Kiev, Ukraine.

At the same time DNBS introduced and developed courses within different genres of dance and theater. In 2009 we were offered to continue to bring forward the school of theater and musical «Cap á Pied» which had been directed by Håvard Engell for more than 20 years. From 2011 DNBS moved to Carl Berners plass in Oslo and we continued developing our range of courses.
