CLASSES 5 - 7 YEARS Competitive Stream
Our troupe students and also any Rec stream students are able to participate in these classes and are also given the opportunity to sit a Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) exam or assessment. Children who wish to do this need to attend two ballet classes per week. The RAD new syllabus is much more suited to today’s child. It has many fun elements incorporating props and imagery yet still has the high standard that the Royal Academy of Dance is famous for. Children will be put into the correct level appropriate for their age. Ballet students are given the opportunity to perform in our end of year concert.
