Inspire is The Royal Ballet School’s inspirational professional development programme.

We are delighted to be offering Inspire: Series 1 and Inspire to be: Series 2 from the autumn term 2021 onwards. Booking opens in late September.

We also plan to deliver our Series 1: Inspire seminars in Seoul as part of our rescheduled Korea Intensive in December 2021. Find out more.

Please note: While we currently expect these courses to go ahead, they are subject to change based on the prevailing COVID-19 guidance.

The programme offers fresh and exciting ideas to guide teachers in their approach to classical ballet teaching. Held in the UK and internationally, these innovative events support the professional development of teachers from all backgrounds: experienced teachers to new teachers and student teachers.

There are two series within the Inspire Programme; Series 1: Inspire and Series 2: Inspire to be.

Series 1: Inspire consists of six, one-day seminars that contain a mix of practical and pedagogical study. Series 2: Inspire to be follows on from Series 1: Inspire and consists of four one-day seminars that contain a mix of observation and practical study. Classes are delivered to students of the participating teachers. Through observing our experienced tutors in action and participating in practical sessions, teachers will learn how to apply what they have learnt in Series 1: Inspire.
