Bristol Russian Ballet School Summer Course

Our summer school is for Vocational/None Vocational Ballet students.  Since we started our courses in 2011 we have had students attending from The Royal Ballet School, English National Ballet School, Elmhurst School for Dance, Tring Park, Rambert school of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, Ballet West , Ballet Theatre UK School as well as none vocational Ballet Schools including Bristol Russian Ballet School. And oversea Ballet students from Japan, USA , France and Spain.

Please visit our website for reviews:

Great opportunity to get vocational standard training with ex-professional Ballet dancers who were trained at Bolshoi Academy, Vaganova Ballet Academy and The Royal Ballet School.

Friendly atmosphere but the lessons are very demanding and the students need to be fit and injury free to attend these courses.

There are NO AUDITIONS for Easter/Summer courses. Candidates are selected by Bristol Russian Ballet School’s Director through PHOTO APPLICATION ONLY.

Application is now open
