Welcome to the Royal Ballet School Korea’s website.
My name is Geung Soo Kim and I am the Director of the Royal Ballet School Korea Winter Intensive program.
The Royal Ballet School Korea was established to introduce the high level of education of the Royal Ballet School of the United Kingdom to aspiring students in Korea.
The Royal Ballet School is one of the world’s most profound leaders of classical ballet training, which for generations has kept its tradition and history as United Kingdom’s one-and-only royal ballet institute. It has produced world-class dancers and choreographers including Margot Fonteyn, Anya Linden, Kenneth MacMillan, Lynn Seymour, David Wall, Antoinette Sibley, Anthony Dowell, Marguerite Porter, Stephen Jefferies, Darcey Bussell
and Jonathan Cope.
Now there is a new generation in making for the Royal Ballet School and its graduates to make its mark on the world stage, with Lauren Cuthbertson, Steven McRae, Edward Watson, Christopher Wheeldon and Liam Scarlett to name a few.
Starting this year, the Royal Ballet School Korea will help talented young dancers in Korea to receive the Royal Ballet and to further develop programs to encourage students to interact with the broader world.
Taking steps forward, the Royal Ballet School Korea will strive to inherit Royal Ballet School’s excellency and help students in Korea reach their full potentials while taking advantage of the elevated education and training opportunities from abroad.
