The Royal Ballet School present the stars of tomorrow
Each year around 1,000 young people apply for a place at The Royal Ballet School. Only 24 of these will make it through to the Lower School, while approximately 30 will win a place in Year 12. . Twenty years ago girls made up 80% of the students, now the genders are represented more or less evenly. Paul Boyd’s Uneven Ground, as pictured here, demonstrated the students' versatility as it ditched classical dance for an Argentinian flavour.
