Nolwenn Collet

Nolwenn's passion is playing for ballet.
Born in Provence, in the South of France, Nolwenn began playing the piano at the age of three. After graduating in piano, piano- accompaniment and music analysis from: Les Conservatoires de la ville de Paris, Le Conservatoire National de Région de Rueil-Malmaison and Le Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, her aptitude for improvisation led her to concentrate on accompaniment for ballet and contemporary dance under the auspices of Laurent Choukroun, pianist in charge of rehearsing ballet at the Paris Opera Ballet School.
Nolwenn was awarded the French State diploma in piano accompaniment for ballet and contemporary dance in 2001. She was immediately appointed as permanent ballet accompanist by the Paris conservatoires, a position she retained until she relocated to Ireland in 2009. Nolwenn has been company pianist for the National Ballet of Ireland since 2010. In addition, she plays regularly for ballet classes in Ireland and abroad. She has had the honor to work with numerous ballet artists and companies such as Birmingham Royal Ballet, Matthew Bourne, Dame Monica Mason, Andrew Wilson, Errol Pickford, Joanna Banks, Therese Cantine, Douglas Becker ...
