We set up this site to support and encourage young men who do ballet
and demystify the world of ballet for those who don't.

Revealing Royal Ballet School statistics

Every year the Royal Ballet School presents a series of performances at the Linbury Studio, Covent Garden. The season ends with a gala performance by the whole school on the opera house's main stage. I've been going for many years (a friend plays the tuba in the orchestra for the gala) and I recommend interested dancers try and get hold of tickets for this fine series of demonstrations.

There may be a chance for a full review at a later stage but I just wanted to highlight a couple of interesting facts shown by this year's programme:

- There are more boys than girls at the Royal Ballet Upper School.

- In this year's intake of youngest children (11-12 years old) the boys also outnumber the girls.

On a side note, every boy admitted this year was a former RBS Associate. We hope to do a feature on the Associate Programmes at a later date and are contacting the Royal Ballet School to try and make this possible.
