‘Ballet is for everyone’ – How The Royal Ballet is giving children the Chance to Dance

Children who have taken part in The Royal Ballet’s Chance to Dance discuss how the programme has impacted their lives.

Now in its 25th year, Chance to Dance offers over 20 schools across Thurrock and London introductory ballet classes for children. They provide a creative introduction to ballet for all Year 3 children through a mix of Royal Ballet demonstrations and practical workshops.

Children identified with enthusiasm and aptitude for dance are invited to join the Chance to Dance Company for up to four years, going to weekly classes locally, attending family days at the Royal Opera House and working towards an annual performance alongside dancers from the Royal Ballet.
