We are delighted to invite secondary schools, colleges and youth groups to apply to work on a project with The Royal Ballet School.

This innovative dance project is designed to link A Level and BTEC dance students and selected London Secondary Schools with young dancers of a similar age at The Royal Ballet School.

The projects are creative collaborations for a group of pupils who will meet and work with Royal Ballet School students over a 15-week period. The project provides a creative insight to the art form of ballet and culminates in the creation and performance of a new dance piece by all the participants. No previous experience of ballet is required.

This project is structured to be delivered over one term by the group’s dance teacher in collaboration with a visiting Royal Ballet School artist. The work of a Royal Ballet choreographer will provide the starting point for creative and choreographic exploration. The project will culminate in the development and performance of original student dance pieces at The Royal Ballet School, Covent Garden.

This project is generously funded by the Department for Education and therefore offered free of charge.
