Finnish National Ballet 100 Years

Celebrate our centenary with us! You’ll find all our content about the landmark year on this page.

Time to celebrate!

This is our coming of age story. We were born 100 years ago, and ever since then we’ve been unstoppable.

We are fuelled by movement, its power and beauty. Its natural beauty, to be exact. We love to perform but not to pretend. Authenticity is our passion. In our family, everyone can be who they are – onstage and in the audience.

Though our dancers come from around the world and we work on international classics, our roots are right here, in this country and this city. It feels beautiful to be at home.

We’ll be celebrating our birthday throughout the year, and you’re invited to the party. Let’s make this a centenary to remember.

”I can’t think of anywhere I could be happier than at the Finnish National Ballet. I can do work that I love in my home country with the best colleagues. It’s wonderful to have so many ballet lovers in Finland that our company can have thrived for a full century.”

– SARI IKONEN, dancer
