RAD Dance School exams
The RAD Dance School is an Approved Examination Centre.
These provide students with:
- achievable goals
- recognition from the world’s largest ballet examination board
- qualifications accredited by UK regulatory authorities, and
- the impetus to achieve their best in a fun and nurturing environment.
Students may start with the Dance to Your Own Tune curriculum, move up through Pre-Primary and Primary in Dance levels and then on to eight Graded levels with a further six Vocational Graded levels.
Students may move from Graded to Vocational classes at an appropriate time; or study both levels simultaneously. In addition to an exam at each level, we also offer students the opportunity to prepare and perform three dances for their RAD Solo Performance Award.
From 2012 candidates who have achieved a Pass or higher at Grades 6-8, Intermediate or Advanced Foundation can use their exam result to count towards their UCAS points tariff when applying to university and higher education in the UK.
