The RAD program is a systematic learning curriculum that will train students of dance to use the correct technique that will carry them through many years of healthy injury free training. If developed carefully it will help a young student become a dancer with a strong, clean technique and appealing artistic performing qualities. Students are encouraged to achieve their personal best in the understanding appreciation and performance of classical ballet. On completion of the exam you will be given a certificate and a report that contains feedback from the professional academy dance examiner.
We staff ballet teachers who hold vocational and teaching certificates with the internationally renowned Royal Academy of Dance . These teachers are qualified to train and enter young dancers for ballet examinations.
The certification earned by students at the RAD vocational level is recognized by many college, university and dance company programs. Students must take a minimum of two ballet classes each week to participate in the exams. Examination fees vary for each grade or level.
