World-class teaching open to students from around the world

Taught by Royal Ballet School artistic staff and guest teachers and open to students and teachers from around the world, the new programmes offer world-class teaching in the heart of Asia and at our home in London.

Based at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in Hong Kong and at The Royal Ballet School's White Lodge campus in Richmond, near London, participating students are given one week of intensive ballet training at their chosen location.

Both courses offer participants an opportunity during the week to audition for The Royal Ballet School's full-time training.

Please note: we are aware of the political situation in Hong Kong. Having sought advice from the UK Foreign Office and our partners in Hong Kong, our intention is to run the course as planned. If the situation escalates and we no longer feel it is appropriate or safe to run the course, then participants will be informed and full refunds will be offered.
