London Russian Ballet School

Posted on March 1, 2019

London Russian Ballet School is the only school in the UK to offer Russian ballet training with former artists of the Bolshoi and Mariinsky Ballets. The unique system of Russian training is characterised by exceptional knowledge and great artistry passed down over generations from teacher to student. The hallmarks of Russian classical ballet, which the school instils in its students, are technical skill, speed, strength, artistry, grace and power. 

Vocational students receive training in classical ballet, pas de deux, repertoire, pointe, character and contemporary ballet and are prepared for careers with world-class companies.

LRBS is notable for the importance given to academic study. Completion of full GCSE and A Level study is compulsory from a wide choice of subjects with outstanding tuition. LRBS students are educated artists with great choice and opportunities before them.
LRBS offers exceptional performance opportunities through multiple theatre and outreach productions, allowing students to receive invaluable stage experience, which helps them to develop into independent and mature artists able to flourish in the theatre. The school has a strong association with the Bolshoi and Mariinsky Ballets, and performs three times a year with principals from those companies.

Places are available to all regardless of financial circumstances.
