RAD GRADED BALLET

The Graded Examinations in the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Syllabus consists of three dance disciplines:

Classical Ballet

One of the most widespread and highly technical dance forms in the world. The foundation of the RAD's work and the most important part of the graded syllabus.

Free Movement

A dancing term encompassing movement from other dance styles such as Natural Movement, Contemporary and Classical Greek Dance. Free Movement is usually improvisation based on the students' interpretation of a piece of music or stimulus.

Character Dance

Stylized representations of traditional European folk dance, such as Hungarian, Russian & Polish folk dance, that are integral parts of the classical ballet repertoire.
