Following the latest government announcement, Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance is to return to face-to-face training from 8 March.

Working closely with Richmond Borough Directors of Public Health and the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama, the school has a detailed outbreak plan, and it will continue to offer its students a wide range of provision to ensure they are fully supported.

Throughout lockdown, the school's staff has delivered daily ballet and contemporary dance classes, a range of improvisation workshops, Gaga classes and critical studies lectures and seminars.

This year, Rambert students will work with some of the leading dance makers working today: Jose Agudo, Monique Jonas, Cameron McMillan, Robbie Ordona, Vidya Patel and Connor Scott.

Amanda Britton, Principal and Artistic Director of Rambert School, said, “I have and continue to be truly inspired by the resilience of our incredible student body. It is because of them that we have been able navigate this pandemic and continue to provide the best possible training under immensely difficult circumstances.

“The digital world, although with its physical limitations, has opened up new possibilities for how we operate and share our students' voice and work. As we reflect on what has happened over the last year, we continue to learn more about ourselves, our students and the dance profession. I feel privileged to lead this incredible organisation as we look to the future and our next 100 years.”
