Dancer training

We train dancers full-time, part-time and during our annual Intensive Courses.

Full-time dancer training

Our full-time courses are for students aged 11-19 years. They begin for the younger students at our White Lodge campus in Richmond Park, where we run a five-year classical ballet course alongside secondary academic studies. Our three-year training programme at our Covent Garden campus is for students aged 16+ and includes academic studies for a BA degree in Classical Ballet and Dance Performance.
