The Royal Ballet School Spring & Summer Intensives

Applications for the Spring & Summer Intensives open on Monday 17 September 2018.


Our annual Spring Intensives continue in to 2019.

Taught by Royal Ballet School artistic staff and guest teachers and open to students and teachers from around the world, the new intensives 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.

Participants of our London and Hong Kong Spring Intensives will also get the opportunity to audition for a place at The Royal Ballet School.

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

Each year the Summer Intensive 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 (first two weeks of the Summer School only).

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.
