Autumn Intensive

Are you an aspiring professional dancer?

Join us this October (25-27) for the English National Ballet School Autumn Intensive.

Taught by ENBS staff and guest teachers (last year's faculty included ENB's Francesco Gabriele Frola and Precious Adams), participants will get a taste of life at the world-renowned ENBS.

Students will enjoy daily ballet class, learn notable repertoire essential to all dancers’ portfolios, and take contemporary class.  

On the final day, students will be coached on how to prepare for auditions, they’ll experience an audition-based class and there will be a brief Q&A for students to ask questions about the School. The School’s Artistic Director will be observing class and will offer feedback on what she is looking for when they come to audition for the senior school.

Early applications are encouraged, with acceptances made on a rolling basis.

Entry Requirements
Students must be aged 14-17 years (in UK school Years 10, 11 and 12) and should be studying ballet to at least RAD Intermediate level (or equivalent) or above.

Please note that this course is non-residential and so students are responsible for securing their own accommodation.

Students will be selected for the Autumn Intensive based on the information in their application and through their photographs. We aim to contact all candidates within 14 days of their application.

Please note that the Short Courses department will be closed from Monday 14 August – Monday 4 September, and so if you send through your application during this period, then there may be a delay in receipt.

Applications will close on Friday 29th September 2023. Applications may close prior to this date if the course is full, and therefore early application is recommended.
