WHITE LODGE MUSEUM & BALLET RESOURCE CENTRE
White Lodge Museum and Ballet Resource Centre is the first dedicated ballet museum in the UK. It is housed within White Lodge - a Grade I listed building, which is now the home of The Royal Ballet Lower School.
Visitors to White Lodge Museum can learn about the daily life of students at The Royal Ballet School, the history and development of Classical ballet and the fascinating story of White Lodge itself. Displays feature material from the internationally significant Royal Ballet School Collections, including Margot Fonteyn’s ballet shoe, the death mask of Anna Pavlova, and the school reports of famous alumni.
“The building itself is a joy, and all the information in the museum was set out in an interesting and easy to take-in way. My interest in the ballet and the dancers has been increased.”
