Dance Teacher Observation programme


A unique opportunity for dance teachers to observe our Spring and Summer Intensive classes at The Royal Ballet School.

Continue your professional development by watching our teachers train some of the world's finest dancers.

Teachers can watch at two of our Intensive Courses:

Spring Intensive classes – 7 to 10 April 2019 at White Lodge, Richmond Park (10-15 years)

Summer Intensive classes – from 17 to 20 July and 23 to 26 July 2019 at both White Lodge (10-15 years) and Covent Garden, London (16-20 years)

Classes include classical ballet, repertoire, solos, character, pas de deux, contemporary, choreography, pointe work, creative and virtuosity.

Booking for the 2019 Dance Teacher Observation programme

Booking for our Dance Teacher Observation at our London Spring Intensive has closed. Booking for our Summer Intensive observation days will open end of April 2019.

What can I expect?

You will see the young dancers learn The Royal Ballet School System of Training first-hand from our artistic teachers. This is an English style of classical ballet, rooted in tradition and passed down by successive teaching staff and guest teachers sourced from our alumni.

Our System of Training is based on the legacy which our Founder Ninette de Valois inherited from her own teachers: Espinosa, Cecchetti, Legat and Preobrajenska.

A boost to your CPD

The programme could contribute towards independent CPD required by some dance organisations. We will be happy to supply you with a certificate of attendance for this purpose.
