There has been Pantomime performances in Tivoli, since the Park opened in 1843. In 1911 Tivoli started having Ballet performances with both Danish and International Dancers.
In 2012, the company was renamed Tivoli Ballet Theatre and Tivoli Ballet School was established. The School was created as part of Tivoli’s focus on talent development within the classical arts.
The Tivoli Ballet Theatre has twenty dancers, including three character dancers. They come from all over the world and all have classical ballet backgrounds. The dancers in the company not only have to have a strong ballet technique, but also an understanding and sense of dramatic expression. This is a very important part of the Danish Pantomime tradition, which is needed in several of our season’s ballets. Our dancers perform on different stages in Tivoli, at the Pantomime Theatre, in Tivoli’s Concert hall and on stages also outside Tivoli.
Here you can get an insight into who the dancers are, the management and the team behind the company, as well as a day in the life of a dancer at Tivoli Ballet Theatre.
