Royal Academy of Dance

The World’s most important ballet teacher

The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) has grown to become a global organisation that exists to develop and promote the knowledge, understanding and practice of dance internationally. Every year over 250,000 students around the world are taught the Academy’s classical ballet syllabi by Academy trained teachers. The safe and correct training of your children is one of the R.A.D’s major concerns which is why our grades syllabus has been devised with great care. It progresses a child in slow stages, demanding no more of a young body that it can easily cope with.

 

• Dance develops life skills, increasing confidence and self-esteem, expression, communication and self-motivation.

 

• Dance improves postures and physical strengths

 

• Dance develops co-ordination and appreciation of music

 

• Dance provides new and exciting challenges and opportunities to meet other like minded people.

 

The Academy provides 3 different types of syllabi in classical ballet. There are 2 exam syllabi known as Grade exams in dance and Vocational Graded exams in Dance. There is also a non- assessed syllabus known as Presentation class. All are designed to recognise the progress and achievement of children and young people.

 

While ballet is fun, it is also physically demanding and parents SHOULD TAKE CARE TO SEND THEIR CHILDREN TO A PROFESSIONALLY QUALIFIED TEACHER.

 

The Academy system of Registration enable parents to identify their teachers. To become Registered a teacher must first graduate from the Academy’s teacher training programmes.

 

R.A.D. teachers continue training throughout their careers to update their skills and knowledge. The Grades & Vocational Graded exams now can be used towards the UCAS points.
