Ballet Training

Our ballet-training programme, delivered throughout the year in Birmingham and on tour, provides the opportunity for ballet students to further their technique, meet and work with professional dancers and gain an insight into their career, as well as experiencing behind-the-scenes work of Birmingham Royal Ballet.

The programme is split into two strands:

  • Studio to Stage Insights (only Birmingham at present) - 2014 taster sessions available here
  • Off the Stage (touring venues: Plymouth, Salford, Sunderland)

    'I really enjoyed ‘interpreting a role’ and understanding how the costumes and wigs are made. Thank you for these great days, they’ve really helped my technique, performance and understanding of different characters.' Quote from a student

    'I really enjoyed every single class. I love to move and perform and BRB gave me every opportunity to do that' Student from Insight days

    'Really enjoyed the day and this has given me an insight to what it is like to be a professional dancer.’

    'All beneficial, and the relationship between pilates and technique for ballet was helpful. Emphasis on hip placement and line helpful especially for jumping. Good to see pupils from different angle and in different situation. Great day!' Teacher observing Insight days
