The Royal Ballet will stream a behind-the-scenes glimpse into class with its youngest members, when they will share their thoughts on joining the world-famous ballet company on Friday 7 May.

Rehearsal Director Christopher Saunders will introduce the most recent dancers to join the Aud Jebsen Young Dancer Programme, established in 2014 to provide recently graduated dancers a year’s contract, and this season’s recipient of the Prix de Lausanne scholarship placement.
