Geographical remit: 


Our mission is to provide world-leading training and education in ballet and contemporary dance, embracing individuality and new ideas whilst being deeply rooted in tradition and technical rigour. 

Our student body is purposefully small but diverse, with 45 undergraduates from all over the world accepted each year to benefit from intimate and intensive training.


Rambert School delivers a unique dual-focused training model through our Foundation/BA (Hons) degree course with a 50/50 emphasis on ballet and contemporary dance, unlike any other dance school in the UK. We are also delighted to be pioneering a brand new MA course in Professional Dance Performance in partnership with Rambert (dance company), creating a new ensemble of outstanding dancers under the name Rambert2.  This is the first programme in the world to integrate professional experience at the highest level with postgraduate study.

Rambert School is an outward looking institution and we are passionate about engaging audiences far and wide. Every week 140+ participants aged 2.5 years and up attend a programme of classes for Children, Young People and Adults, and an average of 200 international participants attend the Summer Courses and Autumn Intensive each year. The School connects with members of the community and pupils from local schools and colleges through visits, workshops and open rehearsals. 

Rambert School is a member school of the Conservatoire for Dance & Drama, an HEI, and is validated by the University of Kent.
