Summer Intensive 2019: your response

A total of 584 students from all over the world came to London to attend courses at White Lodge, and at Upper School this July and August. We asked them how they found it:

‘It was a fantastic experience to train at The Royal Ballet School while also having access to Royal Ballet dancers and teachers and the Royal Opera House.’

‘Enriching. I got the opportunity to dance different styles, choreography without pressure, just enjoying and learning from it.’

‘I really enjoyed working with all the faculty and meeting students from around the world. I feel that I really improved my technique and artistry. Being able to dance in such historic and beautiful facilities was amazing!’

‘I had so much fun! It was so inspiring.’

‘It was absolutely one of the best experiences of my life because I had the opportunity to learn and improve my technique so much with the best ballet teachers. Thank you for all!’

‘It was an unforgettable experience that helped me to grow.’

‘I really enjoyed my Summer Intensive experience. I enjoyed all of my classes and teachers. I feel like I was given valuable corrections and was able to gain knowledge of new styles. All the staff at my residence were kind and fun.’

‘It was a lovely experience. The Royal Ballet School thought about every little detail. It was a real pleasure.’

The course included intensive ballet training from artistic staff of The Royal Ballet School, alumni and guest teachers such as Edward Watson, Viviana Durante, Samira Saidi, Jason Mabana, Julia Ellis and Valentino Zucchetti to name but a few.

Classes at the Summer Intensive included classical ballet, contemporary, character dance, body conditioning and creative. Students had the opportunity to gain a valuable insight into the School’s unique training approach, learn from the world’s best teachers and make friends who share a passion for dance.
