Dance Education

We offer a range of opportunities for schools, community groups and individuals to work with us and improve their understanding of ballet.



Bringing younger audience members to the ballet? Find out how you can enhance the experience for them, and for yourselves.


Support Opportunities

Beyond our performances, there are a number of ways in which you can support our work.


Pre-performance talks

While our performances rarely feature much dialogue, we're now giving you the chance to hear a different Company member speak in every city that we tour to!

Find out more about our new season of pre-performance talks.

Ballet, What's That?

Our Department for Learning will be appearing in Tamworth and Cardiff over the Autumn Season, with our interactive touring exhibition entitled 'Ballet? What's That?'

If there's any aspect of a ballet performance – either on or off stage – not covered by the exhibition, members of the Company will be present to answer any additional questions that you may have.

Visit the 'Ballet? What's That?' page for more information and venue details.
