BALLET PROGRAM

Our studio trains using the Royal Academy of Dance Ballet Program.  Our ballet program is taught in group classes but our examinations are on an individual basis.  Our Ballet Director and her support staff help students progress through the Ballet graded system at their own pace and as they are ready.

Our Kinder Ballet students train through the Royal Academy of Dance Program but are not required to examine.  They prepare a recital piece for our year end showcase which takes place at Bert Church Theatre.

Students in Grade 1 Ballet are considered Pre Competitive and learn their Ballet syllabus in class but also a competition routine which they will perform at two competitions throughout the season.  This same routine is used to perform at our year end showcase which takes place at Bert Church Theatre.  These students have the option to examine through the RAD program pending recommendation.

Students in Grade 2 Ballet are considered part of our Mini Program and learn their Ballet syllabus in class but also a competition routine which they will perform at three competitions throughout the season.  This same routine is used to perform at our year end showcase which takes place at Bert Church Theatre.  These students have the option to examine through the RAD program pending recommendation.

Students in Grade 3 and above Ballet are considered part of our Accelerated Program and are required to take a ballet examination each season.  They will only learn their Ballet syllabus in their designated graded Ballet class.  They must take an additional class for competition choreography.  At this level students are required to take a weekly ballet class and are required to participate in a Ballet Choreography for competition.  The piece that is prepared for competition (3-4 per season) is then also performed at the year end showcase which takes place at Bert Church Theatre.
