Our Premium programmes allow pupils to further enhance their training and artistry in all styles of dance. Children who show exceptional talent and/or dedicated and committed individuals who take more than two ballet classes and other mutliple dance disciplines per week.
These scholarship classes are free as we believe in nurturing dedication and talent within our school.
Our two scholarship classes (Juniors & Seniors) were set up in 2013 to provide children with an opportunity to train at an even higher level. It is offered to pupils with exceptional talent and as a reward to pupils who show commitment, dedication and effort in their regular weekly classes (for pupils taking 2 ballet classes (not incl pointe), and other dance disciplines per week). These classes are free, and they further enhance technique and artistry in not only ballet, but also modern, contemporary and street dance, so that they become all-round dancers, which RSB feels is hugely important in today’s commercial world.
The class structure is dictated by the current performances and events taking place:
● COMMERCIAL STREET
● CONTEMPORARY / LYRICAL
In these classes, the work and choreography taught enhances syllabus work and enables the children to develop further technique, musicality and artistry as a unique individual. As a result, our pupils become rounded dancers, with the ability to broaden their knowledge and develop their sequencing. Children on our scholarship programme are also accepted as Associates of the Royal Ballet School and the Central School of Ballet.

As well as our regular Acrobatic Arts dance classes, we have one class dedicated to pupils who have extensive experience and skill in gymnastics.
This unique Advanced Acro Dance Troupe brings together unique choreography which seamlessly combines dance and acrobatics at a high level. We choreograph each dance to suit the individuals own skill and age, and is has proved extremely popular.
The class is taken by Miss Rosie and runs once a week, who carefully brings out the artistry in each child's performance while ensuring the "acro" sections fit in without being an additional extra within the routines.
