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.

Alongside the full time courses, as a School, we also offer additional enrichment activities to complement their training. These include open classes with guest master teachers, additional exam classes as well as additional evening classes across all genres.
After school classes are extra training at an advanced level for students from the full time school wanting to further their training in all genres. Auditions are held throughout the year for students to be selected for these classes. These classes are provided by the School as part of its scholarship support scheme and are of no additional cost to the students on the programme.
Students of the full time school can also partake in exam classes include RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) Classes for students wanting to obtain Advanced 1, Advanced 2 or Solo Seal. Exam classes take place outside of the school timetable and are an additional cost to the course fees.
In addition, the School provides a Student Enrichment Programme which has been developed to enhance the course. As part of this, we offer trips to theatres across the year, workshops and masterclasses by industry professionals and seminars from healthcare professionals on student health and wellbeing. Student enrichment has an extra one-off fee at the start of the academic year to cover all costs.
