An innovative framework for contemporary dance training
The aim of Rambert Grades is to create a new training that empowers and sets a benchmark of excellence in contemporary dance. The process has creativity at its core and has been developed to support teachers in the development of emerging talent. With an emphasis on a practical framework, exams are part of the journey and not the main focus.
‘We are absolutely thrilled to be launching Rambert Grades, a landmark collaboration between Rambert School and Rambert, who together share almost 100 years of Rambert heritage. Rambert Grades are inclusive and accessible, encouraging creative skills and independence: in true Rambert spirit each individual student’s voice is recognised and celebrated’.
Principal Amanda Britton, Rambert School

Rambert Grades have been developed by a leading team of experts from Rambert and Rambert School with some of the most dynamic and relevant voices of contemporary dance in the UK – including material devised for the syallabus by Hofesh Shechter, Alesandra Seutin and Benoit Swan Pouffer.
