Meet The Team
🇨🇭🇭🇺 Hoi Zämme!
My name is Piroska, but you can call me Piri.
I am originally from Aargau, Switzerland but I have spent most of my childhood travelling with my family.
I started ballet very young and when I turned 10 years old, I joined the Hungarian National Ballet School in Budapest. The high-level training I received there led me to the prestigious Arts Educational School Tring, in England, where I trained as a professional ballerina.
After graduating, I decided to attend university in the USA in order to study child development.
In 2017, I decided to come back to Switzerland and settle on the shore of the Geneva Lake to found my very own ballet school, Piri Ballet.
Replacement teacher and holding workshops and ballet camps
My name is Danai and I am a ballerina from Greece.
Alongside my studies in children psychology and mental health, I have been dancing and training as a professional ballerina for 20 years.
I was awarded several diplomas for teaching ballet from The Royal Academy of Dance as well as the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (UK).
I have spent a lot of time teaching and working with children suffering with mental health issues and for the past 2 years, I have been teaching dance at the Greek schools of Geneva and Lausanne.
I am delighted to join Piri Ballet this year as a ballet teacher and see what we can do together!
Teaching Monday afternoon, Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday morning & Friday afternoon
🇨🇴 Buenos dias a todos!
My name is Lohislany and I am coming to you from Cali in Colombia.
I started my ballet training at INCOLBALLET, the most prestigious neoclassical dance school in Colombia.
After graduating from INCOLBALLET in 2014, I was offered a soloist position within the school’s company.
For 9 years, I was part of the International Ballet Festival during which I performed with the best international companies in the world (Hong-Kong Ballet, The Royal British Ballet, and more).
In 2015, I joined the Bejart Ballet Company in Switzerland but had to take a break after an injury.
From that time on, I decided to use my experience to teach the young ballerinas, to share my love for ballet.
I am thrilled to be joining the Piri Ballet family this year and give back to the swiss dance community!
Teaching Wednesday afternoon/evening, Thursday afternoon/evening & Saturdays
🇺🇸 Hi Everyone!
My name is Amber Papp. I was born in the USA, where I grew up doing Gymnastics. After 5 years of training and competitions, I decided to transition into dancing.
From the age of 11 I trained in Jazz, Lyrical, Hip-Hop and finally did ballet and pointe.
I competed in these disciplines for 7 years, a time during which I was also a teaching assistant.
This experience led me to obtain my qualification as a ballet instructor, which I hold alongside a degree in early childhood education from Metro State University.
I have taught all forms of dance to different age groups for 11 years and am now excited and looking forward to being a part of the Piri Ballet family.
