About Marina & Guy International Ballet Summer School
1. Who We Are?

Marina Antonova and Guy Albouy as Principal dancers have had a long, highly successful and creative career, dancing worldwide with International Ballet Companies, in International Ballet Gala’s and Dance Festivals.

 Coming from different ballet environments and cultures, they first met as principal dancers in Deutsche Oper am Rhein Ballet company in Dusseldorf in 1996.  Since then they danced together and also became a couple with adorable twins born in 2015.

After retiring from the stage, they have been working shortly as Guest Ballet Masters in Ballet companies in Europe. On the invitation from Mr.Prof. Jason Beechey they started to transfer their knowledge and experience to younger dancers as a fulltime teacher at the renown Palucca University of Dance Dresden (Germany).

 In 2008, they created and start directing the first International Ballet Summer School in Germany.

For this education program, they use and combine their knowledge of classical ballet based on Russian Vaganova method and French ballet education as well as their brilliant worldwide experience of contemporary and modern versatile repertoire.

In 10 years the Ballet Summer School in Dresden became a unique International Meeting Point for young dancers, teachers, choreographers, ballet masters, ballet company’s directors, musicians, photographers, painters …

Since August 2014, Marina and Guy have joined the classical ballet department team of the Royal Swedish Ballet School in Stockholm.
