My name is Olga Leibrandt. I am a ballet teacher in and from Frankfurt am Main. My journey into the world of ballet began when I was 6 years old. At the age of 10, I was accepted into the renowned Bolshoi Academy in Moscow. After a short stopover at the Lyceum for Choreography in Chişinău, I graduated as a qualified ballet dancer. After dancing professionally until 2002, I moved to Germany. In 2008 I became a qualified ballet teacher and have been teaching children and young people ever since.
