Teet Kask (born 8 May 1968 in Pärnu) is an Estonian choreographer.[1][2][3]

Overview[edit]

In 1978, he joined the Tallinn Ballet School, where he studied Vaganova classical ballet.

At 18 years old, he had leading roles in the Estonian National Ballet.

A turning point for Kask came when he was engaged by The Royal Swedish Ballet, in 1989, as the first Estonian ballet artist to work full-time in West before the Iron Curtain fell in 1991.

In 1990, he was invited to work with the Norwegian National Ballet.[4]

In 1997, parallel with dancing, Kask began to work as a freelance choreographer.

In 2005, he graduated from City University London/Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with a Master of Arts in choreography.
