Ballet - Royal Academy of Dance syllabus
We teach the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus to our ballet students. Miss Jacinta Murphy completed her teaching qualifications through R.A.D. in 2013 and currently mentors Miss Abbey in her teaching of lower grades also.
The Royal Academy of Dance is "one of the largest and most influential dance education and training organisations in the world" (The Royal Academy of Dance.) With students from 83 countries worldwide studying the R.A.D. syllabus, students are held to an internationally high standard.
*Pre School, Pre-Primary and Primary ballet classes focus on developing a progressive range of skills such as: jumps (skips, galops, leaps, jumps from one leg to two and two legs to one etc), classical walks, classical runs as well as recognisable ballet movements such as battement tendus, demi-pliés and sautés while in a creative and encouraging class structure.
These physical skills in partnership with performance quality and musicality become the fundamental basis for classical ballet and entrance into the more formal structure of Grades 1-8.
