About the Royal Ballet School
The Royal Ballet School is one of the world’s greatest centres of classical ballet training, which for generations has produced dancers and choreographers of international renown.
The school offers an eight-year carefully structured dance course, aligned with an extensive academic, pastoral and healthcare programme, giving the students the best possible education to equip them for a career in the world of dance.
Admission is based purely on talent and potential, regardless of academic ability or personal circumstances.
For the 3rd and last year, the Interlude will end with a world premiere performance by the Choreographic Project’s participants. The Prix de Lausanne welcomes some of the best students from 13 of its Partner Schools to be part of this unique collaboration. In 2020, 26 dancers will work along with the fantastic Italian choreographer Mauro Bigonzetti for almost a week to learn and repeat his new creation.
