What is classical ballet?

Following on from Balance Dance School’s Toddler Creative Dance and Kinder Creative Ballet programmes, we offer the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) classical ballet syllabus as a framework for our ballet classes. We deliver this program in the same manner as our younger classes – promoting feeling before form, providing a nurturing environment and creative outlet.

We offer students the opportunity to participate in a Royal Academy of Dance Class Award or Exam. The RAD Class Award is a less formal option to an official RAD Exam. The assessment system for the Class Award is formative in nature rather than summative, and is intended to give a broad overview of a candidate’s progress as observed by an official  RAD Examiner. An Exam provides student with a mark out of 100 accumulated over various technique and performance categories. In order to participate in an Exam students are required to attend 2 ballet classes per week.

Participation in RAD Class Awards or Exams is completely optional.
