A brief note about The Royal Ballet School…
Founded in 1926 by Dame Ninette de Valois, The Royal Ballet School is one of the most prestigious classical ballet training centres in the world. For generations, it has trained internationally renowned dancers and choreographers such as Margot Fonteyn, Anya Linden, Kenneth MacMillan, Lynn Seymour, David Wall, Antoinette Sibley, Anthony Dowell, Marguerite Porter, Stephen Jefferies, Darcey Bussell and Jonathan Cope.
Many of the current figures at The Royal Ballet have passed through its classrooms, such as Lauren Cuthbertson, Steven McRae and Edward Watson, and choreographers such as Christopher Wheeldon, among others.
Admission to the school is based solely on talent and potential, regardless of academic ability or personal circumstances, and 89% of current students rely on financial support to attend the school.
The school offers carefully structured dance training over eight years, together with an extensive academic programme, providing students with the best possible education to equip them for a career in dance.
