Video applications for our full-time training programmes opened on 7 September 2021 and close 20 October 2021. All auditions are for courses which start the following September.

We want aspiring young dancers, whose dream is to come to The Royal Ballet School, to have the opportunity to present their talent and potential closer to home. These preliminary auditions are run separately to our main auditions process.

All successful candidates will attend a final audition in London.
