What is Homestay?

A Homestay provides students of 16+ yrs term time accommodation within a home where they have the opportunity to live fairly independently with the reassurance that a responsible adult is nearby/on hand if needed. In a Homestay, students learn valuable life skills, building resilience and independence. For example, buying their own food, cooking, laundering their own clothes, keeping the living environment tidy and clean, living with others and generally experiencing life as a young adult.

What's included in Homestay:

  • a furnished room

  • access to communal house areas

  • adult support when needed

  • the opportunity to live independently 

  • access to and/or assistance with laundry facilities

  • 24/7 support from a responsible adult

  • english speaking homestay guardian (unless otherwise requested)

All-Star Guardianship can also provide term time Homestay arrangements for students 11-16 yrs - please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Kings International Ballet Academy is a Professional Academy of Ballet and Dance, based in the county of Leicestershire, specialising in developing the next generation of International Ballet dancers.


We are a purposefully small Academy -  we will only accept the most talented students .

 It is our main priority that each student gain employment within the industry on completion of their time with us. 

 Kings International Ballet Academy is dedicated to training the next generation of diverse, intelligent , body aware, musical, dramatic artistes - we develop the true performer .

To that end the students  attend  classes in  Classical Ballet, Variations, Repertoire, Pas de Deux, Pointe, Specialist Male Classes, Body Conditioning, Technical and Commercial Jazz, Contemporary Dance, Drama and Singing. Students will also  be actively involved in our Student Enrichment Programme, which will equip our students with valuable Performing,  International Competition, practical teaching and choreographic experience

Kings International Ballet Academy is also associated with Brecon Festival Ballet Company, and as such all our students receive annual professional Performance opportunites with the Company . 

Kings is passionate about producing industry ready, employable graduates and therefore the Professional Dancers Course at King's concentrates purely on practical sessions, thus giving the students the most intensive training possible. In order to provide the students with the highest quality classical training available,  we follow  the Russian System under the umbrella of the Association of Russian Ballet and Theatre Arts (ARBTA). 


Kings International Ballet Academy's Professional Dancers Diploma Course is accredited by the BDQT.  


It is our intention that all  students will be entered for vocational graded examinations, a Diploma in Performing Classical Ballet and a Diploma in Teaching  as well as the IDTA Level Four Anatomy Diploma . 

The Pastoral Care and well being of our students is of the utmost importance to all the staff here at Kings, academic consultations for those wishing to pursue extra curricular qualifications ( for example at A Level )  will be given prior to the beginning of the course and access to a dedicated member of our team who visits the students at the Academy on a regular basis to help the students to deal with any issues they may have. 


Kings International Ballet Academy embodies everything which is required of the Contemporary Classical Dancer and if it is your dream to become such a Professional Dancer .......
