'I think the best part of being a Royal Ballet School graduate is the vast web of alumni we have around the world.'

– 2016 graduate

Since it started in 1926, the School has trained many of the world’s finest classical dancers – including Margot Fonteyn, Kenneth MacMillan, Antoinette Sibley, Anthony Dowell, Anya Linden, Jonathan Cope and Darcey Bussell.

Today, the School continues to develop the talent and technique of young dancers and choreographers from all over the world, some of whose names may, one day, be as illustrious as those before them.

Alumni of The Royal Ballet School are part of a global community of dance professionals and enthusiasts. Leaving the School is not the end but the beginning of a lifelong link to us and to your fellow graduates.
