Support us in our centenary year
26th January 2020
Fuelled by innovation and creativity, Rambert School plays a key part in the professional dance sector. Our finely-tuned curriculum, inspirational teaching and the talent and individuality of our students makes us a world leading centre for dance training. We are the only school in the UK to focus equally on classical ballet and contemporary dance, ensuring we give our students a sound technical training and that we produce industry ready dancers and choreographers.
In the past five years we have undergone a rapid period of change, both cementing the core philosophies of the training and opening doors for new developments and innovations. Principal and Artistic Director, Amanda Britton, has built on the rich and successful history and created an artistic vision which will ensure a strong, stable and ambitious future and secure an international reputation of significance.
Whilst we celebrate our success we believe we are only at the beginning of our journey taking the School into the next century. We have ambitious plans to further our work, increase our reach both nationally and internationally and remain a driving force of dance education.
Our ambitions now need to be matched by our facilities and in 2020 we will undertake capital improvement works to our home. We will create modern state-of-the-art training facilities that will be a legacy for the future of Rambert School for both core student training and also for our growing widening and participation work.
With the support of The Linbury Trust we were able to begin work to the Anya Linden Studio Theatre in August 2019.
Our plans involved reconfiguring the studio to gain much needed space for our growing student numbers. We also upgraded the outdated sound and lighting equipment. This new and modernised space is now being used for our degree programme training, community classes and performances. The Weston Studio is the School’s smallest studio and its use is restricted by its size. We have recently been able to secure planning permission to extend this studio by 4 metres, providing an additional 44.8 square metres in size. This will create a much improved studio space and enable more classes to take place for the benefit of our students and the wider community.
