Every student of the RBS participates in the end-of-year Grand Defile, when everyone performs on stage to a large audience.

"Our mission is to train and educate outstanding classical ballet dancers for The Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and other top international dance companies, and in doing so to set the standards in dance training, nationally and internationally.

The School offers an eight-year carefully structured dance course, aligned with an extensive academic programme, giving the students the best possible education to equip them for a career in the world of dance." from the Royal Ballet School

The school started in 1926, but only was named the Royal Ballet School in the late year of 1956. Since then, the Lower School has been moved to White Lodge in Richmond Park.

For those who do not have the chance to train full time at this prestigious school, there are Outreach classes and associations, such as Junior Associates, Mid Associates, Senior Associates and a yearly International Summer School, based around the classes that full-time students would receive.
