Proper training in the Russian syllabus after school
These classes are designed for boys and girls aged 10-16 who wish to prepare for full time vocational training with LRBS while they complete their own academic education. Students are taught the Russian Ballet syllabus of the early classes of a Russian Ballet School to prepare these youngsters for full time vocational training in the Russian system. The aim is to reduce common faults of training at an early age and to give a solid technique.
All lessons are taught by a Russian teacher who has both danced professionally in Russia and is qualified in the technique of training specific to this early level.
The programme involves six day a week attendance and includes an annual assessment. The aim of the course is to allow the young student to develop strong technique; the pre-vocational programme does not offer full time academic tuition except to a limited number of students. Lessons take place after school and at the weekend.
Pre-vocational students are involved in outreach performance work and public theatre performance work. Performances are considered a vital part of the young student’s development and journey towards full time vocational ballet training. They also receive character classes and repertoire classes.
Association with Bolshoi Ballet
The pre-vocational students have access to visiting world class artists and teachers, and are involved with the Bolshoi Ballet Performance Programme.
