Ballett Dienstag Basel Armando Braswell

 Introducing a Ballet class in Basel, with live music.

For ALL levels and ALL body types.

Lead by Juilliard Graduate and Ballett Theater Basel soloist, Armando Braswell and his team of quality guest artists.

Class Information

Classical dance with its precise rules is a great training opportunity for physical posture and movement. Not only the body is trained. Rhythmic sense and musicality, power of observation, concentration and memory are just as important. Therefore, learning the language of Classical Ballet is great for everyone – comparable to learning a musical instrument. Add to that, the positive effect on the body and the joy of movement.NEW August 2016 Session. August 9, 2016 – December 22, 2016

Currently, there are still places in the August 2016 session available. The registration is rolling so there is no specific closing date, but the class does usually fill up quickly, so I would encourage you to reserve a place as soon as possible if you’re interested in joining.

At Ballett Dienstag we understand that twice a week is better. Andrea Tortosa Vidal teaches a mixed level Contemporary Ballet class with live music and positive energy. Thursdays from 18:15 to 19:15 at Unternehmen Mitte in Basel. For more information, please send an email to

Andrea trained at the Estudio de danza Maria de Avilar in Spain. Her company credits include Netherlands Dance Theater 2 in Holland and Company Aterballetto in Italy. Currently, Andrea is a soloist with Ballett Theater Basel.


A fun class to learn classical ballet – even for people who never danced ballet before. I remember burning a lot of calories in this class and how it improved my posture – would have continued if it weren’t for the time. I love the guest teachers and pianists too – I was always taken away from the mundane. You think you’ll never ever learn how to dance classical ballet at your age and that classical ballet is boring? Try Armando’s class and you’ll know why I rated five stars.


Best dance class in Basel – Armando is such an inspiring teacher and the live pianist adds so much value! Guest teachers from the Ballett Basel company are a special treat. Definitely worth trying, also for less experienced dancers.


Direct, honest, human, competent, professional and unique. These are the words we have to use when we think about Armando’s dance class. With fun, heart, charm and open minded he „moves“ his students throughout the dance floor. With his motto „everybody is able to dance“ he always has a skillful and sensitive way of finding a suitable level for his class. He finds adequate movements to challenge every dancer.

Our Studios

We are very happy to announce that due to the overwhelming registration requests for our Tuesday classes, we have decided to “upgrade” to a much bigger studio at the QuBa Quartierzentrum located at Bachlettenstrasse 12, 4054 Basel starting with the August 2016 session. The Thursday class will remain at Unternehmen Mitte. This is a very exciting step for us and we are eager to get into the bigger studio with more space for our growing classes!
