Graduation 2019

After an incredible performance at the Royal Opera House and their final Grand Défilé, our 3rd Year students graduated from The Royal Ballet School.

Family, friends and supporters of the School gathered in the Linden Studio Theatre for the graduation ceremony.

Christopher Powney, Artistic Director, introduced the students and gave them some parting words of advice. The Duchess of Wellington, our Chairman, then addressed the students before Darcey Bussell, alumna of the Royal Ballet School, presented them with their certificates.

There were several special awards presented to students, which recognised their efforts and achievements during their time at the School. We wish all our graduates every success in their future careers.

See the full list of graduates and the companies they will be joining.
