FINDING THE RIGHT COURSE WILL SET YOU ON A PATHWAY TO SUCCESS...
It is essential to make the right decision when taking your first steps towards your classical career. Finding the right course will provide the foundations needed for growth throughout training to become the best dancer possible.
The School offers training in three programmes, each geared towards dancers at different stages of their vocational development.
These range from part-time classes with our Associate Programme, to full-time training at the School.
Our full-time courses include a Foundation Year and a BA (Hons) in Ballet Performance, both validated by the University of West London, in partnership with the London College of Music, in association with Ballet Theatre UK.
