The Royal Ballet School Summer Programme

Our annual Summer Programme is for young dancers from the UK and overseas.

Now in its 30th year, The Royal Ballet School Summer Programme will take a new format for 2017. The Summer Schools, at our studios at White Lodge in Richmond Park (10 to 15-year-olds) and Covent Garden (16 to 20-year-olds), will next year be run over four weeks.

Each year the Summer Programme runs in two sought-after locations, historic White Lodge in Richmond Park and Covent Garden in central London. Our Summer School is also open to dance teachers, who can sign up to our popular Dance Teacher Observation programme.

The Royal Ballet School's Summer School is a unique opportunity for young dancers to experience the highest levels of coaching from the School's full-time staff and renowned international teachers. It also enables students to experience intensive dance training over an extended period of time, enabling them to determine their suitability for full-time vocational training.
