About this course
In order to produce professional dancers of the highest artistic and technical abilities, our training and curriculum concentrate on a technique and style of dancing required by English National Ballet and the ever increasing choreographic and technical demands of ballet companies around the world.
We provide our students with a carefully structured two year training programme followed by a third year pre-professional programme. The first two years place great emphasis on fundamental core training, and the establishment of classical technique and its purity of line as well as Contemporary and Choreography. In your second year you will have the unique opportunity of performing and touring nationally with our apprentice company and performing in the My First Series of ballets produced by English National Ballet.
Our third year is designed for performance experience and audition preparation. Whilst continuing your study of all the core disciplines, you will also have the opportunity to rehearse, perform and tour with English National Ballet, take classes and receive coaching from eminent guest teachers and dancers, plus learn and perform historical & current repertoire by renowned international choreographers.
