London Russian Ballet School is the only school in the UK to offer Russian ballet training exclusively with former artists of the great Russian theatres who have had a long career on the stage. Technical skill, artistry, grace, power, dedication and stamina are the hallmark of Russian ballet and this is what LRBS offers its students. The method of teaching is characterised by a process of handing down from teacher to student the knowledge built up over many generations and is unique to the system of Russian ballet.
Vocational students receive training in the Russian Classical Ballet Method, Character Dance and Contemporary Ballet and are prepared for careers with world-class companies. During their time at the school they also benefit from a first class academic education and have exceptional access to the classes, rehearsals and performances of the Bolshoi and Mariinsky Ballet Companies.
There is extensive performance opportunity through multiple theatre and outreach productions. LRBS considers this essential for a young person to develop into an independent and mature artist who will be able to flourish in the theatre.
The affiliated charity Kids Love Lambeth performs Russian classical ballet for children throughout Lambeth.
Opportunity is made available to all regardless of background or means.
“I am very thankful that LRBS has allowed me to receive excellent training whilst paying reasonable fees”
Megan, LRBS student
