Adult Ballet Classes

The Royal Ballet School’s Adult Open Ballet Class is taught by Paul Lewis (who also teaches at the School). It is an inspiring recreational class, accompanied by a musician, set at a General level for adults (over 18) with some previous experience of ballet. Paul works hard to ensure that participants of all abilities enjoy and benefit from the class. It is not recommended for those with no previous experience of classical ballet. The class does not run during the School holidays.

We are currently fully booked for the autumn term but bear in mind we do get regular cancellations. We have an automatic waiting list and aim to distribute cancellations in advance as fairly as possible, so that everyone gets the opportunity to attend.
