Junior Associate Insight Days

Join our mailing list today. We will email you when booking opens for 2018/19 Insight days.

The Royal Ballet School is delighted to invite young dancers aged between 8 and 10 years (currently in years 3, 4 and 5), to attend special events around the country to experience a typical Junior Associate lesson.

A parent and/or one dance teacher per dancer may observe the class, which will be followed by a question and answer session. We advise attendees to arrive no more than 30 minutes prior to the start of the class.

The class is two hours long and will be split into groups depending on age.

All dancers should arrive at the event underchanged (ie with their regular ballet clothes underneath their outdoor wear).

Every young dancer must be accompanied by their dance teacher and/or one parent.
