Tatevik Mkrtoumian is a professional ballerina who started ballet when she was 5 years old in Russia. At this age she already took part and won prestigious prizes at various Russian ballet competitions. With both parents being professional ballet dancers, Tatevik inherited the passion for ballet. After moving to Belgium at the age of 7 she was the first girl to be accepted into the Royal Ballet School of Antwerp without audition. After graduation she was invited to the biggest Estonian Theatre, theatre Vanemuine. After just a few weeks she got her first solo part and danced there for 5 years as a professional ballerina. She toured with the company to Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Belgium and many other countries. She also danced in productions of Ballet of Flanders, VTM (television), international dance festivals…

Many ballet critics from all over the world wrote positive reviews about her dancing skills and talent as a ballerina.
Tatevik’s dream was to make the audience feel the pleasure of dancing when she was on stage. After she returned to Belgium she started a school where she could teach everyone to dance ballet and experience the benefits of this beautiful art. Soon she realized that the methods for teaching professionals was unfitted for adult beginners ballet. She then made her own method that she developed and shaped into a ballet method for beginner adults. With this method every adult can learn classical ballet, get physically fit and flexible and enjoy the pleasure of dance without any prior experience. With Tatevik’s method ballet can benefit everyone.
