Wales International Ballet Summer School 2024

Our professional summer intensive 2024, Wales International Ballet Summer School (WIBSS), takes place at The Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre, Newport, Wales.
Join us on this week long intensive with classes taught by the company director Darius James OBE and guest teachers and repertoire led by the professional dancers of the company.
