Asako Tanaka is  ballet artist and ballet educator.

Even when she was a little girl, she always loved to dance. She was not only interested in movement, she loved to tell stories in an atmospheric scene.


She is a graduate of the renowned national ballet school "John Cranko School". Whilst still at school, she took part in the international ballet competition "Prix de Lausanne" and was awarded the Cash Prize.

As a dancer, she was a member of the "Stuttgarter Ballett" and the "Staatsballett Hannover", among others. She has worked with world-famous choreographers such as John Neumeier and Christian Spuck and has taken part in productions by and after John Cranko, George Balanchine, William Forsythe and Uwe Scholz.


After a few years, an injury prompted her to pursue a different path in order to see something new. She learnt about the hotel industry and cultural management. This change of perspective enabled her to experience the coexistence of different cultures and languages more consciously.


One day, she felt the desire to return to the world of ballet - as a ballet educator -. She gained experience at the Palucca University of Dance Dresden and the Heinrich Schütz Conservatory in Dresden. This was followed by five years in which she taught at various ballet schools in Dresden and the surrounding area.

In 2015, she opened her own ballet school, the TRÉSOR. Ballettakademie in Dresden, which has been operating under the name "mon tresor - BALLET ACADEMY" in Berlin since 2022. At the same time, she also began giving ballet lessons in Japan.


Through her artistic work, Asako Tanaka hopes to reach those who already know and love ballet, but she also wants to open doors for those who are still unfamiliar with this world. She loves and respects ballet as an expression of artistic existence and believes that art makes life more beautiful.
