FAQs

What is The Royal Ballet School’s Video On Demand?

The Video On Demand platform brings The Royal Ballet School’s world-class dancer training to you, wherever you are. We’ve developed a unique collection of exciting, educational video content to inspire young dancers and supplement their training. The platform gives a valuable, one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn ballet technique from expert Royal Ballet School teachers and to understand more about ballet artistry and performance. As well as an extensive collection of ballet, contemporary and Pilates classes for you to enjoy at home, we’ve included interviews and talks with our Artistic and Healthcare teams. These give a priceless insight into what it’s like to train at the School and provide valuable advice and guidance for young dancers.

What do I need to participate?

We have developed these classes with care to ensure they can be executed in a smaller space than a ballet studio. They are suitable to do at home, but we do ask that you make sure your dance space is safe and clear of any hazards. You should have room to fully extend your arms and legs and the floor should not be slippery or uneven. If you can’t fully execute an exercise, you should either adapt appropriately or not participate.

Who can participate?

Each of our physical classes are tailored to a particular age group, from aged 11 and up. We have included details of the recommended skill level for each class on the individual class pages.

These classes are not suitable for beginners and students should be studying a syllabus recognised by a classical dance awarding body. The classes will supplement, develop and strengthen the existing training each student is doing.

Our talks and interviews are suitable for ballet students and parents of any age and ability, or just those interested in ballet and the dance world.

There is no limit on the number of students who can take each class.

What is the cost of the classes?

You can access our Video on Demand content for as little as £5 each for our talks and interviews with Royal Ballet School staff. Pilates and Focus classes are priced at £10 each, and our masterclasses and contemporary classes are priced at £12 each. You will have lifetime access to your purchased class.
