The Royal Ballet School
The Royal Ballet School is a division of the Royal Ballet Company, based in London. The school provides rigorous classical ballet training, in hopes to place graduates in famed ballet companies worldwide.
Absolutely phenomenal teaching. I excelled more than I had ever hoped whilst studying, attending and learning here. Gives great opportunities for young dancers with high potential to succeed and become world renowned dancers in the future.
I go to the royal ballet school and I also have had a year at the American theatre ballet and I would say that the royal ballet school is the best.

The school features precollege and college divisions in dance genres ranging from modern, tap, jazz, contemporary and more.

6Canada's National Ballet School
Canada's national ballet school is way under rated! It is definitely in the top 2 schools in the world. It combines perfection in male and female professional training countrarely to some schools who mainly focus on guys OR girls. The school is very well connected and the dancer's who graduate from it are all breath taking and beautiful. Nehemiah Kish, graduated from there as well as greta hogkinson and many other principal dancers. It's just the sumum of the classical ballet training!
Under rated. Should rank higher!
This is the best ballet school I have heard of in North America

7Paris Opéra Ballet School
Based in Paris, this ballet school is the official ballet company of the Opéra de Paris, or "Palais Garnier. "
The "Ecole de l'Opera National de Paris" is the oldest dance school in the world. To be accepted in the school is incredibly hard and it is known to be the school "that crushes the weak". It would be impossible for students to graduate from there without being absolutely mind-blowing dancers. You can recognize them in 5 seconds if you see them dancing. The Opera National de Paris is not the 7th best school in the world, it's THE BEST! (followed by the Russians) Come on! Juilliard before the POB? Ugh
The best school. Leaps and boing above the rest!
