We train dancers full-time, part-time and during our Summer Programme.
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 in the first two years.

Students are taught choreography alongside their classical training and take part in The Creative Artist Programme, making them well-rounded artists ready to enter a competitive industry.
