Primary Steps on Demand

Primary steps on demand

Primary Steps on Demand makes high-quality creative ballet education from The Royal Ballet School available to all primary schools via our online platform. Schools may sign up for a 12-month programme, renewable each year, with content available from 1 July to 30 June each year. The programme gives educators everything they need to integrate ballet education into their curriculum – no previous dance teaching experience required!

The programme has its roots in our in-person Primary Steps programme, and takes a creative approach to the teaching of ballet, with an emphasis on developing students’ creativity and independent thinking skills. Developed to be accessible to all, including those with special educational needs or physical disabilities, the programme uses inclusive language and content is adaptable to the needs of the students.

The flexible on-demand programme, for students aged seven to 11, includes:

  • A library of classes on cross-curricular themes
  • Classes exploring core concepts of movement in ballet
  • Movement guides (e.g. warm-ups and cool-downs)
  • Accompanying lesson plans
  • Resources to accompany classes for pupils
  • Notes, tutorials and advice for teachers
  • Inspiration footage of Royal Ballet School dancers and Primary Steps students.
  • CPD webinars
  • Live virtual workshops
