Insight Days

Studio to Stage Insights are a series of full-day workshops that take place across the year in Birmingham Royal Ballet's studios. The Insights aim to assist young dancers to achieve their full potential and offer an insight into life with a professional ballet company, at the same time as making Birmingham Royal Ballet's current repertoire known and accessible. Ballet teachers are welcome to come and observe their students participation.

Previous Insights have included sessions on the following:

  • Technique, training and coaching
  • Repertoire
  • Stage Craft
  • Fit for Dance
  • Pointe Work
  • Interpreting a Role
  • Choreographic and Creative Insight
  • Performance Insight (linked with ticket to a Birmingham Royal Ballet matinee)
