"Certainly having Agnes Oaks as a teacher what an inspiration to all dancers."

“I see it as a wonderful new Ballet Intensive amongst many in the world. It’s a gem, that not many people know about yet, so anyone who comes here gets to be a part of something really special. The teachers and the choreographers are fantastic and the students get to dance at a final Gala performance in this lovely Opera House. As a dancer from Houston Ballet, I would suggest to attend this valuable workshop.”
"Very very fine teachers and great atmosphere here. Wonderful, when you meet new people from different places with different trainings and become friends during this workshop. This Summer Intensive is quite special - such a human atmosphere and organizers were able to get pretty good and advanced level here! And of course advanced Balanchine techinique! Plus it is very beautiful here in Tallinn! "
"This workshop can give you the first experience of what the theatre company work is. Working for a director in real theatre and preparing everything for performance. Very good mix of workshop and choreography, where workshop ends with Gala evening. Beautiful city and very positive atmosphere."
"This Summer Ballet Intensive is really good experience for me and young dancers, even from Russia. My work with these young people is very interesting. They have a lot of energy. This is a good experience for young dancers to dance in big theatre. Tallinn is very beautiful with fresh air and beautiful Old Town"
"It is not that important how talented you are. What is really important is hard work and to love what you do to reach your goals. I am happy that we have workshop like this now in Estonia, in Estonian National Opera! This workshop gives a lot - you can see different teachers, choreographers and dancers from other countries. If you would like to become a good dancer it is very good for your future."
"Interesting program and teachers, three-week long and the suitable age of participants. Workshop exceeded my expectations! Now my school Vaganova Ballet Academy waits me back!"
"Интересная программа и педагоги, длительность 3 недели и возраст участников. Курс превзошел ожидания!"
