Series 1: Inspire


We are unable to offer Inspire seminars at the moment due to COVID-19. The practical component of our seminars is integral to their delivery. We will deliver Inspire as soon as we are able to safely return to the studio.

In the meantime you may be interested in our Enlighten webinars for dance teachers. These webinars are an excellent supplement to our Inspire series and ideal for developing teachers’ CPD portfolio. Find out more.

Series 1: 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.

All seminars are non-syllabus based with each day including both theoretical and practical elements. The seminars begin with exploring good teaching practice and the foundations of classical ballet technique, before progressing to explore various elements of ballet technique and artistry with emphasis on the teaching and learning process. As well as practical classes, the seminars cover an array of pedagogical topics relevant to the dance teacher of today. 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 Series 1: Inspire.

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.
