Imperial Classical Ballet
The roots of Imperial Classical Ballet stem from the early days of the ISTD and the first written syllabus in 1913 which was based on the teaching of the French School from the Paris Opéra. The syllabus has now evolved to promote the English classical style and address the changing needs of Ballet dancers today.
Bursary Awards competitors are drawn from the winners of the Imperial Classical Ballet Senior Awards upon recommendation from the Imperial Classical Ballet Faculty.
