The Senior Summer Course offers aspiring dancers ages 15-19 years the chance to immerse themselves in dance training for one intensive week. Modelled on the timetable of the full-time FD/BA Hons degree programme, the course offers students the chance to study first-hand from Rambert School faculty and alumni and will culminate in a sharing of work produced during the week. This is a unique opportunity for students wishing to experience a professional training environment and prepare for auditions.
Requirements: Students should have been attending weekly dance classes in ballet and/or contemporary dance for at least two years and be dancing at an intermediate level or above. You do not need to be dancing on pointe to attend the course.
“The teachers have not only helped me with my technique, but also with my confidence and stage performance. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!”
“Very inspirational and motivating. An insight into a professional training environment.”
Unfortunately we are not able to run the Junior Summer Course this year, due to COVID-19. We will be back with this course in 2022!
The Junior Summer Course offers young dancers aged 11-14 years to experience high-quality dance training as well as developing performance and creative skills. Designed as an opportunity for exploring ballet and contemporary techniques within a nurturing and supportive environment, students will take daily technique and creative classes and finish the week with a performance in the School’s own Studio Theatre. This is a great opportunity to expand dance experience by delving further into both ballet and contemporary techniques.
Requirements: Students should have been attending weekly dance classes in ballet and/or contemporary dance for at least one year. You do not need to be dancing on pointe to attend the course.
“I have thoroughly loved this whole course. It has really boosted my confidence, especially as a contemporary dancer. It has also made me realise that you can still be a technical dancer while being artistic, relaxed in the body, letting go and really dancing.”
