Founded 1920

  • Mission statement

    The School is recognised internationally as one of a small select number of the world's premier professional dance schools both in terms of training and choreographic invention. It is the only School in the UK with a policy to pursue ballet and contemporary dance with equal vigour and as equally weighted.

    Students come from varied backgrounds and, although the majority are from the European Union, some 20% are drawn from further afield. Ages range from sixteen to the early twenties. There are at least 10 applications for every place.

    Academic studies work towards a two-year Foundation Degree in Ballet and Contemporary Dance, and BA (Hons) in the third year; both courses are validated by the University of Kent. The School provides an MA in Advanced Dance Performance every second year.

    Students from the School dance all over the world, particularly with companies known for their advanced and diverse technical training and their forward-looking choreographic output. Rambert graduates also succeed as directors, choreographers, teachers, researchers and academics.

    The School’s purpose-built facilities include five studios and a Studio Theatre, a well-stocked library, ICT provision, a Pilates Room and a Therapy Room.

    The Rambert School is an affiliate of the Conservatoire of Dance and Drama.
