Insight days


The Royal Ballet School invites young dancers who are aged between eight and 10 years to attend special events around the country to experience a typical Junior Associate lesson.

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.

For information on these events please contact:

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.
