Classical Ballet is a great foundation for all forms of dance. Ballet students are very adaptable to other styles of dance. We follow the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus as it is one of the only syllabi that is internationally recognized. R.A.D caters for both Girls and Boys. These classes can also be taken to improve general technique for other styles of dance. It is highly recommended that all ballet students participate in at least two ballet classes per week to fully gain the understanding & development of this discipline.

RAD Ballet Syllabus & Examination

Ballet Academy Northside prepares students to enter the Royal Academy of Dance Children’s and Major’s Examinations. Students wishing to be considered for examinations are required to attend a minimum of two classes a week and Major students three classes a week. Our students have consistently achieved higher than average results in the RAD Examinations with many students receiving Distinctions throughout their education. It is not compulsory for Ballet Academy Northside students to enter the Examinations. They may progress to the next level of training provided they achieved the necessary standard required in their present Grade and we are satisfied they would cope with the work. Students who take exams improve dramatically and feel great. Confidence is always increased when students begin to see their own merits and that their hard work has paid off.

OPEN CLASSES

“EXPERIENCE THE FULL POTENTIAL OF CLASSICAL BALLET TRAINING” – A GREAT ADDITION TO YOUR R.A.D. SYLLABUS WORK.

This training is built up on a diverse range of classical combinations to challenge a dancer’s coordination, musicality and technique. It is absolutely advisable for students undertaking RAD exams in their Major Grades to participate in order to prepare themselves for the unseen exercises in their exams. Open Classes increase a dancer’s ability to understand ballet terminology to quickly absorb their given exercises.
