The ethos of the School of Classical Russian Ballet is that ballet is first and foremost an art and art is universal. All children should be able to take ballet classes and receive high-quality children’s ballet training regardless of their financial circumstances. The school, therefore, offers subsidies or means-tested bursaries on fees to all who need them in order to enjoy children’s ballet and the classes we offer. We also work with local schools in outreach and constantly encourage participation with a developing Associate Programme.

Please ask for details about bursaries when enquiring about children’s ballet. As a charity, we do not believe that economic circumstance should prevent a child from enjoying a ballet class.

Please always ask at the school office for further information. Our office can be reached via email on or via phone on +44 (0)20 7498 0498.
