Graded dance classes are perfect for dancers wanting a strong foundation in technique. All graded qualifications hold credits and are equivalent to GCSE and A-Level at the higher levels.
Please note, your child will not be automatically entered for an exam. We will assess the students ability and advise the best route for each individual dancer. We strongly advise students to sign up for private lessons alongside their graded group class when preparing for the final examination.
Ballet is a highly technical form of dance and has been globally influential defining the foundations and techniques used in many other dance genres making it an essential genre for every dancer.
During this class students will learn Classical Ballet technique, placement, line, musicality and how to apply these skills to the graded Ballet exercises as well as to dance in general. Students will quickly build on their vocabulary of key steps through a Classical Ballet structure including barre work, adage, petit allegro, pirouette and grand allegro which all contain essential steps for any style of dance.
Students will have the opportunity to put their skills to the test and enter a Royal Academy of Dance examination before moving up to the next grade. Examinations are optional and won't stop students progressing to the next grade if they choose not to take the examination. R.A.D certifications are globally recognised qualifications and carry UCAS points at the higher grades. Please visit the R.A.D website for more information.
Combine your Ballet Dance class with Modern Dance to maximize performance, technique and versatility.
