Inspire seminars

Studio shot for advert

Inspire is a comprehensive series of six seminars for classical ballet teachers devised and delivered by The Royal Ballet School.

These innovative events will support continued professional development for dance professionals from all teaching backgrounds and societies.

The seminars explore good teaching practice, the foundations of classical ballet technique and lesson planning. Teachers can gain valuable CPD experience by taking part in this inspirational series of seminars.

Each seminar can be attended as a one-off event, however it is recommended that teachers experience all six seminars to gain a complete understanding of the full Inspire series.

Teachers can take the seminars in any order, however it is recommended that they be taken sequentially. A certificate of participation is provided after each seminar and on completion of the six seminars, a final certificate of completion of the Inspire programme is awarded.
