Balettikoulu Sinikello

Balettikoulu Sinikello is a ballet school located in Oulu. It was founded in 1995. In autumn 2015 there are 550 dance students who are between the ages of 4–27. There are five groups for boys that are called Tiikeripojat, tiger boys. Ballet classes are held in the centre of Oulu, in Kuivasjärvi, in Toppila, in Värttö, in Heinäpää and in Limingantulli.

In the beginning, children are taught basics of ballet as well as improvisation and dancing through fairytales and plays. Year after year the amount of the actual ballet dancing increases. The national curriculum for the basic studies in arts is being followed in general terms in Balettikoulu Sinikello.

The teacher and the director of Balettikoulu Sinikello is Päivi Honkakoski.
