English National Ballet performances, events, workshops and classes affected by COVID-19.

We thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this period of uncertainty. Our thoughts and best wishes are with everyone who is being affected by this situation and we hope to see you again soon.

Following government advice about Coronavirus COVID-19, the performances, events, workshops and classes listed below have been cancelled.

When will English National Ballet performances resume?

ENB and the theatres to which we tour all continue to respond and adapt to government guidelines regarding large gatherings indoors. At the moment we are unable to say with certainty which scheduled performances will go ahead but we hope to be in a position to clarify soon.

When will English National Ballet classes return?

At the moment we are unable to say with certainty when Classes for All will resume.

English National Ballet has recently opened some studio space in its home at London City Island for its dancers to start preparing for their return to work in the coming weeks. However, in the interest of maintaining a COVID-secure environment and in line with government advice, the building remains closed to the public at this time.

As soon as we are in a position to open the building to the public safely, and to commence dance classes, we will notify all previous Classes attendees and update our web page.

In the meantime, visit our ENB at HOME page for free online classes. Did you take part in an online class or watched an ENB at Home video? If so, please fill out our survey.
