Balettakademien har under en spännande vecka i november gästats av professor Paul Christman från Oklahoma University, en skola som Balettakademien samarbetar med i form av t.ex. studentutbyten.
Paul hade efter sin tid på BA många fina saker att säga:
"After my residency at the Balletakademien, I can state that this school is providing their students a strong artistic education. I have no doubt that upon graduation, they enter the profession and are competitive with other performers from Scandinavia and Northern Europe. During my visit, I observed the third year students auditioning for the Göteborg Opera. All the students were prepared, worked well with the accompanist and presented contrasting material in Swedish and English. All were open to suggestions from the Opera staff and were comfortable interacting with them. This demonstrates that Balletakademien is preparing their students to work at the professional level as musical theatre artists. There is excellent training occurring at Balletakademien."
