Grades 1-8 are formal classical ballet training levels using the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus. RAD is an internationally recognized syllabus with an examination board that is continually updating and revising its work to keep up to date with the ever-changing demands of the dance industry.

These Grades are progressive, with technical ability building on the skills acquired in previous levels. Students have the opportunity to sit an examination for each Grade when ready but are required to do 2 classes per week from Grade 1 upwards. Classes include traditional classical technique, free movement and National Character work.

Vocational RAD Ballet Levels

These levels are, Intermediate Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced Foundation, Advanced 1 and Advanced 2. These levels are the pinnacle of any ballerina wishing to reach the highest goals in ballet and wanting to progress further in dance. Reaching these levels creates a sense of pride and passion in the dancer. In these higher levels students are working at a faster and more professional pace. They have now said goodbye to their character shoes and have stepped into the Pointe shoe world.
