BALLET EXAMS

At Grand River Dance Academy we are certified and registered with The Royal Academy of Dance.

The Royal Academy of Dance offers a wide range of exams and assessments to motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities.

Our focus is on a creativity and musicality, with their graded system providing opportunities to progress and achieve.

All candidates who successfully pass an examination or reward receive a certificate of achievement and a breakdown of their results.

Starting with students as young as two, they move through Pre-Primary levels before moving on to Graded and Vocational Graded levels.

Graded and Vocational Graded exams lead to recognized achievement at a high level in dance.

GRADED SYLLABUS:

Grade 1 to Grade 8 incorporate ballet, free movement, and character. This syllabus is suitable for candidates from seven years( Grades 1-5) and eleven years (Grade 6-8).

VOCATIONAL GRADED SYLLABUS

This develops the technique, music and performance skills of the older ballet student to an advanced level, preparing them for a dance or dance-related career.

A REAL MEASURE OF ACHIEVEMENT

These higher levels are accepted as a measure of achievement by the vocational schools attended by most young people aiming to enter the dance profession.

They are also highly valued by universities and other institutions offering degree courses and programmes in the performing arts.
