Miss Manoela

🇧🇷 Oi pessoal!


My name is Manoela and I’m originally from Brazil. 

I moved to Europe 12 years ago to finish my dance studies in London with the English National Ballet School. Since then I have been working with international companies such as Zürich Ballet, Bayerisches Staatsballett Munich and currently I’m dancing with the Béjart Ballet here in Lausanne.

It’s a privilege to share this art form that shaped my life and career onto the new generation.

My aim is to teach dance in a creative and fun way so our students can be more confident with their bodies, learn discipline and at the same time experience freedom through movement.


I’m excited to be joining the Piri Ballet family this year as a ballet teacher and to see the progress of our students.

Miss Alexandra

🇨🇾  Geia sas!


My name is Alexandra and I come from a beautiful Mediterranean island, Cyprus!

I ‘ve been dancing ballet since the age of 4 and at the age of 18, I joined Northern Ballet School in the UK, for my professional dance training.


Since my graduation, I have worked as a professional

dancer and dance teacher in Cyprus, Lebanon and now in Switzerland.

I am a qualified ballet and modern dance instructor by the Imperial Society of Dancing (I.S.T.D.) UK, qualified instructor of Progressing Ballet Technique (P.B.T.) and qualified instructor of

Pilates Mat (by StudioOne & EREPS).


During my teaching qualifications I have studied child

development, safe structured lessons and prevention from injuries.

My goal as a teacher is to provide my students an unforgettable and fun experience while

learning the ballet technique! Can’t wait to meet you all and create memories together!

Miss Federica

🇮🇹  Ciao! 


My name is Federica and I was born in Italy. I started classical ballet at age 3. I attended “Accademia Cecchetti” in Italy where I successfully passed various exams in the Cecchetti ballet method.


In 2016, I’ve started giving classes at my school and I enjoyed teaching so much that I decided to pursue my studies in dance teaching. I obtained my “DDI”, Diploma in Dance Instruction by ISTD London. Since then I have resumed my training as a dance teacher, as I want to continually improve.


In 2017, I joined the dance company “Area Jeune Ballet” in Geneva, where I had the opportunity to work and perform with many international choreographers.

I am excited to be part of the Piri Ballet team because it represents my values in teaching: Helping children make great progress in a positive environment!


Our Lausanne Team

All of our teachers are professional, positive, kind, patient and love working with children. They are trained in the Piri Ballet method, so no matter which class or teacher you chose, you will receive the same high standard that we set for each class. Our classes are fun, positive and challenging.
