Summer School

Each year The Royal Ballet School offers two International Summer Schools, at both White Lodge and Covent Garden, for young dancers from the UK and overseas. These run in conjunction with the Dance Teacher Observation programme.

The International Summer School is a unique opportunity for young dancers to experience the highest levels of coaching from faculty members of The Royal Ballet School and renowned international teachers. It also enables students to experience intensive dance training over an extended period of time, enabling them to determine their suitability for full-time vocational training.

Applications for our International Summer School 2016 are closed and all places have been filled.

Online applications for our International Summer School 2017 will open in early September 2016.

Bookings for the Summer School Dance Teachers’ Observation Programme 2016 are now open.

Our International Summer School is generously supported by The Leverhulme Trust
