ROYAL ACADEMY OF DANCE (R.A.D.)
At CDA, the students are trained in the Royal Academy of Dancing (R.A.D.) syllabus for both grade and major examinations. The R.A.D. is the most widely recognised classical ballet syllabus in the world, producing the best technical performers in today’s ballet companies. It is a portfolio of examinations designed to reward, motivate and encourage ballet students of all ages and abilities by following a progressive structure for learning and achievement.
Ballet promotes discipline, self-confidence and develops students’ co-ordination, strength and technical ability. We offer our students the opportunity to complete their R.A.D ballet exams on an annual basis and offer classes from Pre-Primary through to Advanced levels. Students must attend a minimum of two ballet classes a week to be eligible for exams.
