Elmhurst Ballet School is the oldest vocational dance school in the UK and a world renowned centre of excellence for the training and education of ballet dancers, in which students are equipped with the skills, resilience and creativity to succeed and make a difference in the professional dance world and beyond. With vocational ballet training and academic studies under one roof, the school is among the ones with top performance in A-Levels results in the UK. Associated with Birmingham Royal Ballet, students study under former and current members of the company and many have the chance to appear on stage with them. The three strands of life at Elmhurst, LIVE DANCE LEARN, provides a caring environment, high standard dance training, and strong academic education.


Master Classes will be taught by Mr Robert Parker, Artistic Director of Elmhurst Ballet School UK. Mr Parker joined Elmhurst as Artistic Director in autumn 2012, following his retirement as a Principal dancer with Birmingham Royal Ballet. He trained at the Royal Ballet School and joined the Birmingham Royal Ballet in 1994. He quickly rose through the ranks and was promoted to Principal in 1999. He has made guest appearances with the Royal Ballet and received various accolades including a Critics' Circle Award in 2003 and an Olivier Award nomination in 2001. Since 2009, he began teaching at Elmhurst on a regular basis, completed a Master’s degree in Philosophy in Education and was selected to attend the 2012 Rural Retreat for aspiring artistic leaders. After retiring from Birmingham Royal Ballet he passed his RAD Professional Dancers’ Teaching Diploma with distinction. That same year he was appointed President of the London Ballet Association.
