The Royal Academy of Dance, RAD, is one of the world´s most influential dance education organisations, whose exams set standards in classical ballet worldwide. Our students will have the opportunity to move from Graded to Vocational Graded levels.
The Graded levels, Grade 1 to 8, incorporate ballet, free movement, and character and are suitable for candidates from seven years onwards.
The Vocational Graded levels, develop the technique, music and performance skills of the older ballet student to an advanced level, preparing them for a dance or dance-related career.
Graded and Vocational Graded exams lead to recognised achievement at a high level in dance and are also allocated points in the UCAS Tariff, which means that students could use their RAD exam results when applying to university or higher education in the UK.
