Spring and Summer Courses
Spending a week at Central School of Ballet is an excellent way to experience a taste of life in full time ballet training. Our popular Spring and Summer Courses provide an opportunity for you to do just this. The course is aimed at students aged 12-16 with a minimum of RAD Intermediate Foundation or alternative equivalent.
Ballet is at the core of the course and you will be grouped by age and ability. You will also take classes in Pointe (where appropriate), Contemporary and Body Conditioning, all taught by Central's outstanding teachers. The programme of classes offered may also include Jazz; Character, Repertoire and Dalcroze.
On the final day parents and dance teachers are invited to either observe class or watch an informal work sharing.
Subject to a minimum numbers of boys applying for each course we hope to offer boys only ballet classes on all courses in 2015.
If you are considering taking your dance training further by studying on a full time vocational course then Central’s courses offer excellent intensive training.
