VOCATIONAL INTERMEDIATE – an RAD Preparation Program
** Class is combined with VOCATIONAL INTERMEDIATE FOUNDATION in September **
Academie de Ballet Classique’s VOCATIONAL INTERMEDIATE – an RAD Preparation Program, works towards mastery of the challenging choreography of the RAD’s Vocational set exercises and variations. Dancers work towards a goal of achieving a high level of skill and quality. What does all that mean? It means students work towards more than learning the steps, instead they acquire a mastery and artistry of the work to a level that progresses easily to the RAD Vocational Intermediate levels.
With the ballet vocabulary learned in the lower graded levels, dancers increase their ballet knowledge to a high degree along with a more stylized approach. Some enchainements and all of the dances are performed as solos, building confidence with big smiles at the achievements made.
Academie de Ballet Classique’s BALLET FUNDAMENTALS course, in addition to this course, is a requirement for those wishing to take the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Assessment in the Spring. For more information on the Royal Academy of Dance Program please visit Royal Academy of Dance – Achieve.
