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.

Minka Kamberovic teacher

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

We are expanding…!

We are delighted to announce the foundation of „Yen Han Ballet Productions“.

„Yen Han Ballet Productions“ are located at Freihofstrasse 20, 8700 Küsnacht.

Amongst others, you will find a spacious dance studio of more than 260 square meters, where as from 1 May 2019 the Yen Han Dance Center will offer more of its popular classes in addition to the school in Witikon.

However, „Yen Han Ballet Productions“ is much more: a new dance company, a theatre space and an educational organisation. „Yen Han Ballet Productions“ produces ballets, which will be performed on its own stage in Küsnacht and on tour all over the world. These shows will be created by two house choreographers: Ballet Zurich’s popular principal dancer Filipe Portugal, who also starts his work as a teacher at the Yen Han Dance Center, and the internationally renowned choreographer Ken Ossola. Amongst others, Ken was a member of NDT for many years and collaborates regularly with Jiří Kylián.

You can reach our new venue in a 5 minute walk from Bahnhof Erlenbach or with a local bus. Moreover, four spaces for cars are available in front of the building.
