Thank you to all who came to support us at Cadogan Hall on 8th December 2014. The performance was a sell-out and went extremely well.

LRBS has its own youtube channel! Class, rehearsal and show videos are being uploaded for all to see. We hope you enjoy watching them as much as we enjoyed making them. 

Ms Galina Rachmanina

LRBS are over the moon to announce that Galina Borisovna Rachmanina, prestigious artist of Russia and daughter of the great Bolshoi Ballet Academy teacher Boris Rachmanin, has joined our staff. 

Galina has arrived in order to take control of the vocational girls programme and rehearsals involving both corps and female soloists. Our girls are overwhelmed to be given the opportunity to work with Galina, we can already begin to see improvements in the performance ability. 

Galina's full impact upon our students will be seen during our summer performances!


LRBS holds auditions privately throughout the year. Please note we do not hold annual auditions because we prefer to see candidates amongst our students to mediate how they blend and adapt to our school's dynamics. If you are interested in auditioning please contact the school directly and an audition can be scheduled with our Artisitic Director. 

Performances in 2015

LRBS performances are scheduled for May and November 2015. More information is to follow, so please check this website and our Facebook page.

Since the arrival of the great Russian artists from the Imperial Theatre at the beginning of the nineteenth century, Russian ballet has been recognised in the West as a unique artistic phenomenon. Classical ballet, as we know it today, was largely created in the Russian Imperial Theatre. The style and character of classical ballet were formed during this Imperial period. It is this style and character that retain and manifest the significance and beauty of classical ballet for the audience today. In the development of classical ballet in Imperial Russia a system evolved, over two hundred and fifty years, to meet the technical requirements and fulfil the stylistic demands of Russian choreographers. Generations of great Russian ballet theatre artists worked within that system to preserve and pass down this heritage while allowing it to evolve. It has produced arguably the greatest ballet schools and method of ballet education. Many of the famous names in the world of ballet are the products of it.
