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.
Students applying for either the Spring Course or Summer Courses must be 12-16 years of age and have a minimum of RAD Intermediate Foundation or equivalent including pointe work.
Classes begin at 10am each day and usually end at 5pm. A ballet class is timetabled every day and pointe / boys coaching scheduled for every alternate day. Other classes include Pilates; Contemporary and Repertoire. Depending on the length of a course, we may include classes in Jazz; Character and Dalcroze and invite guest tutors and choreographers to lead a masterclass on one of the days.
The one week Summer Course has a maximum of 15 students in a class, made up of mixed ages between 12-16 years. One week course students are placed in separate classes to the two week course participants.
