Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) ages 5+
Primary to Advanced 2 & Solo Seal
Beginner classes for ages 5 – 12
Recreational classes for ages 8+
Pre-Primary & Primary level develops students’ creativity, co-ordination, expression and musicality. This strong foundation prepares students for a successful transition to graded ballet and other dance genres.
Graded Syllabi, Grades 1 — 6, provides a broad practical dance education, progressively developing the technical, musical and performance skills of the student. They incorporate Classical Ballet, Free Movement and Character. Classical ballet is the core of the syllabus. Free Movement incorporates movements in common with dance genres such as Contemporary. Character is the theatrical presentation of national dance using ethnic dance and music, which has been freely adapted for the theatre. Three styles have been selected for study: Hungarian, Russian and Polish.
The Vocational Graded Syllabus
(Intermediate Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced 1 & 2) is the continuation of classical ballet training from the Academy’s Graded Syllabus. However, it also stands alone as a full training regime, and is geared towards those engaging in the serious study of ballet. Each syllabus has been designed to give the necessary training to students wishing to study seriously, with a possible view to following a career in dance, or dance related subjects. There are six levels of Vocational Graded Examinations starting with Intermediate Foundation and culminating in the Solo Seal Award.
