Autumn Intensive 2023

Monday 23rd – Wednesday 25th October 2023. 

Rambert School Autumn Intensive offers aspiring dancers the chance to take part in a 3-day intensive training programme designed to deepen technical understanding and support creative expression, helping to prepare ahead of vocational auditions.

Delivered by faculty, alumni and associated artists of Rambert School, participants are given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the professional training world and given insight into the audition room. Through a daily class schedule, students will expand their technical awareness, develop their creative response and discuss audition and interview techniques to support them through the process, whilst maintaining their individual voice.

With access to our world-class purpose-built facilities in Southwest London and first-hand experience of our training environment and creative ethos, dancers will work intensively on skills to support them in the audition room and beyond, following a programme that will encourage flexibility, adaptability and versatility, whilst retaining a sense of self-expression and individual physical exploration.

Monday 23rd – Wednesday 25th October 2023

For dancers aged 14-19 years*
Course Fee: £195

*Dancers should be in UK Year 10+

Course Content

Ballet & Pointe & Virtuosity

Ballet, pointe and virtuosity classes will explore classical technique to deepen students’ physical understanding of the form, strengthen technical skills and develop musicality and expressivity. Our gender neutral approach to ballet training will see each dancer take part in all classes. Dancers who have not worked en pointe before will work en demi-pointe.


Classes exploring a range of contemporary techniques will be delivered to develop a strong physical understanding of contemporary dance, alongside improvisation and creative tools to support the development of the individual artistic voice.

Additional Training

To support the dancers’ training, students will also take part in some of the following sessions:
Q&A: Auditions, Training & Life Beyond School
