BALLET SCHOOL are a band at the forefront of pop’s new alternative. Classic melodies, beautiful beats, real lyrics. Featuring songwriting duo Rosie Blair on vocals/guitar, Michel Collet on lead guitar and Louis McGuire on drums. Rosie, (from Ireland), and Michel (Japanese-Brazilian) met two years ago in Berlin’s thriving ex-pat DIY scene. Rosie heard Michel playing his guitar in the U-bahn and immediately asked him to form a band. In 2012 they began collaborating with Louis, another fixture on the Berlin DIY scene. The three bonded through wild experimentation, endless youtube partying and constant gigging, as they worked to transform a deep love of The Cocteau Twins, The Cure and early Madonna into a fresh pop sound. The heart of the Ballet School sound is the perfect match of Rosie’s voice, Michel’s glacial guitar and Louis innovative drumming. The result is graceful, 21st Century Pop.
Ballet School – Crush
BALLET SCHOOL are a Berlin-based three-piece group consisting of vocalist Rosie Blair, guitarist Michel Collet and Louis McGuire on drums. The band have been playing together since December 2012. A ballerina supporting all her body weight on the tip of her toes appears to be weightless in the eye of the public. In deep meditation, she overcomes pain to deliver a true moment of Grace. Ballet School is about learning Grace. The amalgam of diverse influences of the three members briefly summed up is 80’s pop, shoegaze and RnB and the result is a vibrant and colourful new sound, created to be experienced live.
