The Royal Ballet School Summer Programme

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

Each year the Summer Programme runs in two sought-after locations, historic White Lodge in Richmond Park (10 to 15-year-olds) and Covent Garden in central London (16 to 20-year-olds). 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.
