Summer Intensives

Our annual Summer Intensives are for young dancers from the UK and overseas.

Each year the Summer Intensives run in two sought-after locations, historic White Lodge in Richmond Park (10 to 15-year-olds by 31 August) and Covent Garden in central London (16 to 19-year-olds by 31 August).

Our Summer Intensives are also open to dance teachers, who can sign up to our popular Dance Teacher Observation programme.

The Royal Ballet School’s Summer Intensives are a unique opportunity for young dancers to experience the highest levels of coaching from the School’s full-time staff and renowned international teachers. They also enable students to experience intensive dance training over an extended period of time, enabling them to determine their suitability for full-time vocational training.
