Thérèse Oswald

Producer Thérèse Oswald, ballet teacher in Amsterdam and ISTD International Examiner for the Cecchetti Society, registered teacher of the RAD.

All CD’s have been produced in collaboration with Thérèse Oswald. She studied ballet in Zurich with Harjis Plucis and Denis Carey. Later she also took  classes with Rosella Hightower in France and spent some time in London with Anna Northcote; it was there that she became acquainted with the Cecchetti Method which she was to use in her teaching.

After her dancing career in France she settled in Amsterdam where she still teaches in her own ballet school. Her school is an Approved Dance Centre of the ISTD and she is a Fellow and Vocational International Examiner of the Cecchetti Society.

She spends a lot of time in England and got in touch with Marion Porter-Walsh, with whom she produced the unique CD BalletClass for all Levels. The music on this CD helps every teacher to construct an inspiring class for more Advanced students, even if the poor teacher is not in the mood to give a class. It has a large number of allegro pieces, suitable for petit, medium and grand allegro.

And, there are special pieces for Point work.

Now she has produced a follow up CD with Menno Dekker which will certainly help teachers with their free classes.
