Our ambition is great ballet for everyone.

English National Ballet is a progressive, professional and collaborative organisation that places audiences at the heart of everything we do.

Our strategy and our mission has the repertoire at its core.  We honour the tradition of great classical ballet whilst embracing change; evolving the art form for future generations and encouraging audiences to deepen their engagement.

Company Class

Although the Company has now been allowed to resume some activities, in order to meet COVID-Secure guidelines, English National Ballet’s building must remain closed to the public and any visitors. We are therefore not able to invite any dancers to join Company classes until further notice.

If you would like to submit your materials for consideration when circumstances allow, please send the following:

  • CV or résumé – including current position, professional experience and classical training
  • Ballet photos – these must be full length, and we recommend submitting no more than three different photos
  • Video link or DVD of dance footage (this is essential, and submissions will not be considered without it) – this can be either onstage or in a studio

Please send your materials to Brittany Wallis, Artistic Assistant, via email at auditions@ballet.org.uk

We will keep all materials on file for a maximum of 6 months. Please keep checking this page for any changes.


Applications have now closed for the fixed-term Artist contracts for both the 2021-22 season and for the Nutcracker and Raymonda performances only. Applicants will hear more in due course.

Ballet Classes

For experienced or semi-professional dancers looking to perfect their technique, we have a range of ballet classes available at our studios on London City Island, near Canning Town.  Each ballet class is led by highly-experienced, professional dance artists and accompanied by a pianist.
