Series 2: Inspire to be
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 the students of participating teachers.
Through observing our experienced tutors in action and participating in practical sessions, teachers will learn how to apply and embed the knowledge and understanding gained in Series 1: Inspire.
Inspire to be classes take place at our studios on Floral Street in Covent Garden.
The aims of Inspire to be
- To provide teachers with a comprehensive understanding of the foundations of classical ballet technique
- To provide teachers with a grounding in relevant education practice
- To assist teachers in improving the effectiveness of the teaching - learning process
- To assist teachers in applying of pedagogical, technical and artistic knowledge into their practice
Bring your students
Participating teachers are invited to bring their own students to take part in the Inspire to be class at The Royal Ballet School. A teacher place includes one complimentary student place.
For Day 1 Entrée, students must have one year's dance experience and be in school Years 3-4.
It is not compulsory for students to attend, teachers may attend the events without their students.
Teachers are able to submit up to three students with their application; only the first place is guaranteed. After that, students two and three will be placed on a reserve list and confirmed nearer the event should there be space.
Additional student places are charged at £25 per student.
Students must be dropped off and collected by a parent/guardian and not the dance teacher. This is because the dance teacher will be on site from 10am-4.30pm, and each class is only for part of the day.
