Every member of the Rambert School staff is dedicated to helping students achieve their potential. Many of the teaching staff are practicing artists, bringing their experience and opportunities to students of the school. Guest teachers and choreographers regularly work with students broadening their experience, providing networking opportunities and preparing them for the profession.
