We have released our updated in-studio schedule for studio classes beginning Tuesday 2nd of December, but in the meantime we wanted to share the changes  that we are making  to ensure a safe environment for you and our staff.


  • The teacher of the class will open the studio for you and will also sign you in.
  • Due to limited staff the doors will open 10 minutes before class. Please observe social distancing while waiting to be let into our studios. You may enter the studio when the door is opened and go to an allotted space at the barre which has been marked with socially distanced spaces for your conveniences. During centre work we ask that you return to your place at the barre to limit unnecessary contact.
  • We ask that you book your class in advance. We will not allow drop-ins for the time being.
  • If you cannot make it to your class, we require that you cancel any booking 24 hours in advance due to the heavily limited capacity per class.
  • There will be very limited changing capacity and we strongly advise you to arrive in your ballet clothing with outer wear on top. We have arranged benches for people to leave their shoes and outer garments before class with marked distancing on the benches.
  • Please make sure to fill up your water bottle at home.
  • If you at any point test positive for COVID-19, you must instantly self-isolate and share information about your recent contacts through the NHS Test And Trace service, to help alert other people who may need to self-isolate. Any staff experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 will self-isolate and follow this same protocol. We would request you inform the school if you do test positive to help us assist in tracing any contacts from the school.


  • To ensure social distancing we ask that you queue up outside the studio or enter and find a distanced space when invited by the teacher. Once allowed into the studio, floor stickers will assist you in maintaining social distancing
  • When signing in, we will ask you to confirm that you are not experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19, and that you have not been in contact with anyone who is experiencing symptoms.
  • We ask that you sanitize your hands upon entry to the studio and classroom. We will provide hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes throughout our studios for yourselves and our staff. The toilets will be in use and will be cleaned frequently. There will be soap and paper at all times in the toilets and we strongly encourage handwashing as well as sanitising before and after class.
  • We will not accept any cash payments.


  • Social distancing will need to be observed at all times – before, during and after class. There will be signage throughout the studio to remind everyone of social distancing rules
  • The number of people allowed per class is significantly reduced to 6 in total , in order to ensure social distancing.
  • In order to adhere to government guidelines and minimize any possibility of congestion we are creating spaces between all classes. All studios will be cleaned after use with appropriate cleaning agents and steamers.
  • We strongly encourage you to arrive in your workout wear, We ask you to place all personal items inside with outer wear and shoes and use the wipes provided to wipe down the benches before leaving.


  • We have limited class capacity, and there will be clearly marked out areas at the barre and in the centre .
  • We will use limited amounts of props during class for the time being.
  • We will ask you to wipe any mats and any props used after each class. You are welcome to also sanitize your area before class.
  • We will air the studio between classes.


  • We ask that you leave the studio promptly after the class.
  • We ask that you please be patient with us as this is a new way for us to operate. 


In these unprecedented times we have been obliged to alter our pricing structure for in studio classes for the current period. If you have funds saved on class packages from before lockdown the amount remaining in your account may be set against your next classes in the studio but in line with the new pricing structure. If you experience any difficulty with this please contact us for help on

Why The School of Classical Russian Ballet?

We are proud to be a Russian school and the Russians have a great approach to dance and exercise. If you want a tough, disciplined pilates, core or barre class we are the right place for you. The expertise the school offers is exceptional and you will find all our teachers are former Russian professional ballet dancers who love to dedicate their time to their adult students. They truly want to share their love of the traditions and methodology of Russian ballet in an adult ballet lesson or pilates or core or barre class. It is often said that Ballet artists are athletes who understand anatomy, muscle mobility and body mechanics in a way few others do. So with us, you will have the opportunity to be taught by not just theatre professionals but a former soloist at the Mariinsky Ballet, Ekaterina Krasiuk who was also a graduate of the Vaganova Academy, the greatest ballet school in the world. Why not also take a class in any discipline with Grisha Ivanov of the Bolshoi with his friendly and enthusiastic approach which will make you happy to learn and reach your goals. For pure happiness take a special ballet lesson with Galina Kozlova, Honoured Artist of Russia and former ballerina at the Bolshoi Ballet. Or work with Inga George, prima ballerina from Georgia who is much loved by her devoted students. You too will be able to share some of the great Russian training so that you are able to grow yourself and change your body and improve your spirit for the long term. Whichever lesson or workout you want we want to make it the right one for you.

Check out the promotions we have on offer to get started with a new way of working. We are happy to talk about any of the classes if you need advice. Just give us a call.

We are a charity, and we need your help.

A key component of the Russian Method is its focus on individual development and equality of opportunity. The London School of Classical Russian Ballet embodies this through our Opening Doors and Outreach programmes which support ballet and academic education for those who would not otherwise have access to it. As little as £12 a month (inc VAT) can make a huge difference.
