I was born in Japan, where I began my studies in ballet and music. During my education, however, I relocated to Europe - or more accurately to France. Here, I successfully completed my studies of music and ballet.
From 1996-2006, I taught ballet at the Volkshochschule in Bern and at the International School of Berne. At the same time, I was responsible for ballet for the Swiss national team for rhythmic and artistic gymnastics in Magglingen. Since 2003, I have owned my own ballet school, "Rieko Ballett" in Zollikerberg, where I also teach in person. I offer ballet lessons to groups as well as private classes. In addition, please speak to me about piano lessons.
As well as my passion for music and ballet, I am also fascinated by figure skating. That is why I am also a ballet teacher and choreographer for figure skaters at all levels. Examples of my most successful students in this form of sport include Sarah Meier and Stéphane Lambiel. I had the privilege of training them in the run-up to world championships.
Please contact me if you have any further questions or would like more information.
I would be delighted to welcome you or your child to my ballet school in the future.
I speak German, English, French and Japanese.
