Easter Intensive 2024


Rambert School Easter Intensive is a chance for aspiring young dancers aged 14 – 20 years to immerse themselves in ballet, contemporary and creativity over 3 days. 

Through daily classes, students will be given the opportunity to work with faculty, alumni and associated artists, experiencing our training environment and creative ethos in our world-class, purpose-built facilities in Southwest London. The course will reflect the training needs of dancers for different stages of their dance journey. 

A number of bursaries are available to support the fees of the course for all UK households with income under £42,875. Bursaries range from 25 – 75% to support with the course costs. All applicants that receive Free School Meals will automatically be offered a 75% bursary.

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. 


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. 

‘I feel like I’ve evolved so much over these three days, both technically and my way of thinking. Thank you so much!’ 

‘I have felt really inspired after this course and I have loved things more than I usually would. All the teachers have been really friendly and amazing and the musicians have really changed how I approach my movement. I hope to improve harder techniques in ballet and continue to test my creativity to see where I can go’

Rambert School’s classes and courses are delivered with a gender-neutral approach, respecting and accepting the gender identities of our community. Through this work, we are redefining the stereotypical male and female technical movement elements, to allow for inclusivity in teaching and performance while widening artistic possibilities and challenging long held attitudes and behaviours within the teaching and dance community. All participants take part in both pointe and virtuosity classes. If you have pointe shoes, please do bring them to the course. If you have not worked en pointe before, you will work in these classes en demi-pointe.
