Exam classes follow a set syllabus and students have the opportunity to take yearly exams. This requires a more serious student that can commit to extra practices when required.  School accreditation is available for certain exams.

Students hoping to take Royal Academy of Dance Graded exams should be enrolled in 2 ballet classes a week (only the 2nd Quarter at Primary ballet level) at the appropriate graded level.  Closer to exam time there will likely be additional classes that students will be required to attend.  ALL EXAM STUDENTS WILL REQUIRE EXTRA PRACTISES.  It is realistic to expect 3-8 extra classes would be required.  Regrettably, if a student has an extended family vacation, or vacations close to exam dates (Feb-April) she/he may be asked to not participate.  If a student is ill or has a medical condition preventing them to dance at the required level she/he may be asked to not participate.

Students hoping to take RAD Vocational exams should be enrolled in all ballet classes at the appropriate vocational level and graded level.  Closer to exam time there will additional classes and students may be asked to participate in other appropriate classes for strength and stamina. Regrettably, if a student has an extended family vacation, or vacations close to exam dates (Feb-April) she/he may be asked to not participate.  If a student is ill or has a medical condition preventing them to dance at the required level she/he may be asked to not participate.

We recommend that in addition to ballet classes, students enroll in the appropriate level Jazz technique and Acrobatic dance class for body conditioning and flexibility.
