Ever wanted to know what it’s like to audition for The Royal Ballet School? Come to one of our Audition Insight days, where you can see exactly how it works, in a relaxed and informal event.

Primary Insight


Schools located in Richmond and the surrounding area are invited to bring groups of children in Years 3 to 6 to visit White Lodge, Richmond Park, to see our 11 to 16-year-old students demonstrate their classical ballet training.

The visit includes an introduction to the key elements of classical ballet training, a specially-designed demonstration class and an opportunity to get up and have a go at the dancing shown.

Secondary Insight


Every year, The Royal Ballet School offers a Secondary Insight day at our Upper School in Covent Garden. Secondary schools are invited to apply to attend a free demonstration of the classical ballet training pursued by our Upper School students aged 16 to 19.


Our Teachers’ Insight Day is open to all dance teachers and provides an insight into the training of our dancers through presentations on teaching pedagogy and observation of our teachers working with our students.


Belfast Insight Days offer young dancers who are aged 7 years and above the opportunity to work with Royal Ballet School teachers in specially designed classes.
