Yen Han and her team successfully demand utter professionalism and exacting standards in the dance studio, while at the same time celebrating the element of fun and enjoyment. It is a rare, wonderful combination. Our daughter emerges from every class feeling challenged and exhausted and with a huge smile on her face.

It is a great pleasure to teach at the Yen Han Dancer Center! It is always nice to see our students improve and to help them develop into talented and eventually professional dancers. I also find the contact with parents and their feedback rewarding.

Dmitry Govoroukhine Teacher, Administrative Assistant

After a long life as a dancer and teacher in many different places I have become a delighted staff member of the Yen Han Dance Center. Yen is an exceptional person, a great and wonderful ballerina. Her love, warmth and understanding create a pleasant working environment and make us most content. Thanks to her international reputation we were able to attract famous dancers from all over the world as guest teachers – a unique chance for students.

The Yen Han Dance Center is my first choice for sending my child because it has the best ballet teachers. They provide highest professional training on an individually appropriate level. Students are challenged but not overloaded and therefore motivated. The school offers excellent guidance for students and parents in respect to the profession, their particular personality and emotions. Its environment is friendly and full of fun.

Ryo Hoshi Parent

Ballet in its most beautiful and purest form. I appreciate every single teacher's unique style and expressivity. At the same time, all trainers teach you the most excellent technique and make you dance with great joy. For me the best ballet school ever!

Xenia Souvatis Adult dancer

I very much appreciate the teachers at the Yen Han Dance Center because of their capacity to correct frequently and in a very helpful way and because of their patience with us students. In addition, the possibility of joining classes of current and former principal dancers of leading ballet companies and being able to learn from them gives an extra motivation for joining this school. Besides, the learning atmosphere is most enjoyable and laughter during class is frequent.

News & Events

Professional program

The Yen Han Dance Center is proud to offer a full professional program to its students. 

The school provides all of its students with a strong ballet foundation from a young age. All classes are designed to build upon each other and students progress through the levels while consistently building their proficiency in ballet. Students who possess the aptitude and the interest can then audition to join the professional program which offers unique possibilities to further their training. 

The high-quality professional training program encompasses all aspects required to build an impressive skillset as a dancer. On the one hand, the school is affiliated with the Kunst und Sport (K+S) Gymnasium of the Canton of Zurich. In addition, the Yen Han Dance Center also welcomes students intending to embark on a professional dance career - but who are not part of the K+S program - to audition to join its professional classes. 

Furthermore, by virtue of being associated with the Yen Han Ballet Company, a company with far-reaching national and international perspectives, numerous opportunities are available to students that would otherwise not be found in a ballet school. An annual performance schedule will allow the students to hone their skills on stage. Performances will include pieces choreographed especially for our students as well as further pieces from a general repertoire. 

After having completed the Yen Han Dance Center professional program, students will have been trained in all areas of classical dance and be prepared to audition for and be accepted into dance companies around the world. Students possessing the necessary technique, skills and aptitude may audition for the Yen Han Ballet Company. Being accepted into this prestigious ballet company will allow them to move seamlessly from their training into beginning their professional careers.
