Royal Academy of Dance Ballet
Suitable for children aged 4 years and up, these classes follow the RAD Ballet syllabus, where students have the opportunity to work towards examinations. The discipline in this training will improve a child’s posture, coordination, musicality and grace.
Where suitable, students will be entered for examinations with the RAD. We have an 100% pass rate, with the majority of students receiving Merits and Distinctions.
Dance examinations give students a great sense of achievement and let them see their own progress. They are also good preparation for academic examinations, public speaking and job interviews, preparing them well for a variety of scenarios.
Our annual Ballet Workshops start rehearsal in September. These take the format of 10 Saturday afternoon rehearsals at Footlights studios in Nailsea. No previous ballet experience is necessary to take part and it can act as a great introduction to the syllabus. Equally many of our experienced ballet dancers also take part taking on solo roles. In 10 weeks we create a fully costumed ballet which is then performed in the December Footlights Show.
