• Royal Ballet School launches Intensive Courses on Demand

    The Royal Ballet School’s Intensive Courses on Demand will deliver a range of online classes, available to purchase individually or as specially-curated Intensive Courses. The classes are tailored to developmental age groups: 11-13-year-olds, 14-15-year-olds and 16+, mirroring the School’s full-time training programme. Classes are low-cost, from as little as £10 per class, and the user has lifetime ownership. Following the first batch of classes on 28 October, classes for 14-15-year-olds will be available from December, with more content being rolled out over the coming months.

    Available from 28th October 2022 on their website here.

    Classes will be taught by expert Royal Ballet School teachers, including the School’s Artistic Director, current Artistic faculty and esteemed guest teachers. They will include classical ballet classes, focus classes on specific elements of classical technique, character and contemporary classes, body conditioning and Pilates, giving students a unique insight into the range and quality of the exceptional training delivered at The Royal Ballet School. There will also be interviews and informational talks with the School’s Artistic and Healthcare teams.

    The on Demand programme is completely flexible. Classes can be viewed on any device and used wherever students are in the world; all exercises have been carefully designed to be executed in a smaller space than a ballet studio and without specialist equipment, so are perfect for home use. The classes are developed and filmed in-house by The Royal Ballet School Artistic and Content teams, bringing together a wealth of knowledge, expertise and experience to guarantee a programme of the highest quality. The development of the programme has incorporated feedback from a test group of users and the School’s students.

    Although the classes are non-selective, they are not suitable for absolute beginners, designed instead to supplement and enhance the training a student is already taking. They’re perfect for continuing training during breaks and refreshing skills before returning to regular training, or simply taking alongside regular training to take a student’s dancing to the next level. Students will enjoy experiencing different teaching styles, dance styles and disciplines, increasing their versatility and adaptability. They’ll develop and refine their ballet technique, mastering essential skills, and they’ll also develop artistry, musicality and self-expression, elements that Royal Ballet School students are particularly renowned for.
