Rambert School, since its first incarnation under Marie Rambert some eighty-five years ago, has been associated with a reflective, innovative and individualised approach to teaching, learning and making dance. The School continues and cherishes this tradition. The work of the School carries on in recognition that dance is a vocation, and that many practising artists (especially dance artists) require an unusual level of energy, commitment and dedication in order to succeed in their profession. The School is recognised internationally as one of the small group of first-level professional dance schools of the world. In order to remain so, and to support its students (given the demands they must confront), it is clear that Rambert School must provide a contained, bordered and protected environment through which an unusual, special and intense level of energy and professionalism is created, respected, treasured and sustained. The School is located in the peaceful surroundings of St Margarets close to both St Margarets and Richmond train stations and offers its own private car park There are five fully equipped, temperature controlled studios available for hire each with its own sound system, piano, Barres, and mirrored wall. The studios are perfectly set up for creative work but also ideal for a wide range of activities. For information on our studio hire rates, please click here The spaces are ideal for: Castings, Rehearsals, Productions, Film and Television recordings, Exercise classes, Wardrobe fittings, Presentations, Conferences Every member of the Rambert School staff is dedicated to helping students achieve their potential. Many of the teaching staff are practicing artists, bringing their experience and opportunities to students of the school. Guest teachers and choreographers regularly work with students broadening their experience, providing networking opportunities and preparing them for the profession. Rambert School has a world-leading reputation, but is still an intimate school with up to 50 students accepted onto the FD/BA Degree course each year. Students typically live close to the School, often within walking distance, and there is a strong community spirit and “family feel” to the School. Each year applications are received from all over the world. The current student body is made up of students originating from seventeen different countries and more than 45% of students are from outside the UK. The diversity of cultures at the School enhances creativity and broadens the overall learning experience. Ballet classes usually take place in the morning. All classes are taught by world-leading teachers and are accompanied by live musicians. Ballet is generally taught in single gender groups, with additional pointe work classes for ladies and virtuosity classes for men. Students come together for pas de deux classes. We have been delighted with the number of applications received for this year’s Summer Courses and anticipate that spaces will be filled well before the deadline. To avoid disappointment you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Once a course is full any further applications will be placed on a waiting list. Please note, FEMALE places on the SENIOR Course are now sold out and we are no longer accepting names for the waiting list. We are accepting male applications for the Senior Course and all applications for the Junior Course. Our students face challenging financial obligations. They need to finance their tuition fees and living expenses in London, and whilst a number can obtain government loans, these are never sufficient to cover all their costs and in any case a number of students are not eligible for government support. Brexit has increased the uncertainty for the future funding of EU students. Admission to the School is based purely on artistic merit and potential and we pride ourselves on never turning away a talented student due to lack of financial means. We rely on individuals, companies and grant-making trusts to support these exceptional young dancers.
