    Peter Brandenhoff

    Ballet // School at Peridance Faculty


    Peter Brandenhoff was born in Denmark and graduated from Royal Danish Ballet. He danced with Boston Ballet, Hamburg Ballet and San Francisco Ballet as a soloist. As a guest, he performed with Royal Winnipeg Ballet, South African Ballet Theatre and Mzansi Productions, Les Ballets Grandiva, and Stars of the Royal Danish Ballet. His repertoire spanned from the classics of Balanchine, Bournonville and Petipa to the ultra-modern Redha, and he has been part of creating works with Mark Morris, Christopher Wheeldon, Alexei Ratmansky, Val Caniparoli and Yuri Possokhov.

    Peter’s passion for teaching was born in 2004 when he helped initiate an outreach trip with SFB to teach in South African townships. In 2008 he joined the faculty at Ballet San Jose School creating a successful boys’ program there. His teaching engagements include Royal Danish Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and School, San Francisco Ballet School, Oregon Ballet Theater, Lines Ballet, ODC/San Francisco, Marin Ballet.

    In 2011, Peter completed his BA from St. Mary’s College, CA and a Fellowship in Administration at Cal Performances in Berkeley. He is also a contributor of articles on technique, music and mime for Dance Magazine, Dance Spirit and Dance Studio Life.

    "I believe that proper placement and technique keeps the body healthy and can prevent many common injuries. The class work is inspired by the philosophies of Bournonville, Vaganova and Balanchine. I try to challenge the brain as well as the body, while I keep a close eye on the individual dancers’ needs. My dictum is: Turnout is a movement and dance is music visualized and above all ballet should be fun no matter what age or level of proficiency."
