Ballet School About

Ballet School is an alt-pop band led by Rosalind Blair (vocals) and Michel Jun Collet (guitar).

Rosie, from Ireland, and Michel, Japanese-Brazilian, met in early 2011 in Berlin’s U-Bahn underground, when Blair spotted Collet “playing amazingly delicate, arcane, beautiful guitar.“ The two of them bonded over Cocteau Twins and immediately decided to start a band together.

After developing their style and playing shows around Berlin with several different drummers, they recruited another expat, British drummer Louis McGuire.

In 2012 the trio signed to Bella Union releasing the EP Boys Again the following year. Their debut album The Dew Lasts an Hour came out in September 2014.
