Adult Ballet Classes


Important Update


We have been running Adult Ballet as a new initiative for 2014 in various formats over the last three terms. This trial period will conclude at the end of the autumn term.


Following extensive consultation, we regret to inform you that, in order to re-evaluate provision, The School has decided not to continue with adult ballet classes from January 2015. Therefore the last adult ballet class will be Wednesday 17 December 2014.


All classes are now fully booked meaning that online booking for the remaining classes this term is no longer available. If you are on the waiting list and a place in class becomes available, you will be contacted in good time.


The decision to suspend the adult ballet classes has not been made lightly. We have had to address significant considerations around cost implications and child protection issues. Meanwhile, we suggest you research the following organisations, all of whom run established adult ballet classes:


The Place, 17, Dukes Road, London WC1H 9PY

Trinity Laban, Creekside, London SE8 3DZ Tel: 020 8305 9400

Central School of Ballet, 10 Herbal Hill, Clerkenwell Road, London EC1R 5EG Tel: 0207 837 6332

Rambert, 99 Upper Ground, London SE1 9PP Tel: 020 8630 0600

English National Ballet, 39 Jay Mews, London SW7 2ES


Thank you for your understanding in this matter and we hope you continue to enjoy taking adult ballet classes. Thank you also for your interest in The Royal Ballet School.

For health and safety reasons the maximum number of participants in the adult ballet class is 30. Please note doors open from 6.30pm. To comply with our Safeguarding Children Policy, participants are asked to wait at Front of House until all our students are out of the building.
