About English National Ballet School
- ENBS is an international centre of excellence for young dancer development. The highest level of classical dance training and education is offered to students between the ages of 16-19 yrs.
- ENBS trains 80 students a year and has a 100% graduate employment record
- The school has been ranked outstanding by Ofsted for the past 10 years
- ENBS is located in Chelsea West London. Approximately 45% of the dancers from the renowned English National Ballet, one of the world’s leading ballet companies, whose artistic director is Wayne Eagling, have graduated from the School. Other graduates join other world class ballet companies across all continents.
- The three year course culminates in a National Diploma in Professional Dance, validated by Trinity College London. The core of the course is classical ballet but students also experience other dance disciplines such as Contemporary and Benesh Notation. Students train to exacting professional standards, developing technical precision and artistic interpretation.
Part of the attraction of the third year of the ENBS course is the opportunity to perform with English National Ballet and other top companies and the access to the international dance community through visiting dance teachers and performance opportunities abroad, often leading to future employment.
