I would be very interested to attend a workshop and teach the new Repertoire programme. Would it be possible to have a course in Scotland please?
Sarah-Jane Lewis says:
06 Oct 2017 14:38
Thank you for your interest. We have noted your request and it will be considered when planning future courses.
Irana Aidonopoulou says:
05 Oct 2017 18:15
Would it be possible to have a course in Athens Greece please? Since the Levels of Discovering Repertoire are 2, 3 and 4 is there going to be a Level 1?
Sarah-Jane Lewis says:
11 Oct 2017 13:49
Thank you for your enquiry.
The Discovering Repertoire Programme Levels are aligned to reflect the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF). In line with which the total qualification certificate at each level can be taken as roughly equivalent to the following:
Level 2 – GCSE
Level 3 – A level, high school, pre-graduate
Level 4 – first year degree
or
Level 2 - at the same level as Grade 4/5 and Intermediate Foundation
Level 3 - at the same level as Grade 6 - 8 and Intermediate/Advanced Foundation
Level 4 - at the same level as Advanced 1 and 2
At present there are no immediate plans to introduce another level to the programme, although we welcome feedback in regards future development.
We hope to announce plans for a Discovering Repertoire taster event in Athens soon.
We hope this answers your enquiry and thank you for your interest in Discovering Repertoire.

I would like to congratulate the RAD on this new REP syllabus. The students that I used for the trailing process- really enjoyed the work .
Will there be courses in South Africa?
Thank you
Sarah-Jane Lewis says:
11 Oct 2017 13:51
Thank you for your feedback Diane. Plans for future courses will be announced via RAD e-news and the website.
Seda Alpay says:

 I had the pleasure to be one of the pilot teachers to be involved in the trial process of the syllabus. I expect the syllabus will be a tasteful alternative for some dancers who would like to continue their dance education with an understanding of repertoire. The targeted group should be selected well and made aware of the outcomes of the syllabus.
Sarah-Jane Lewis says:
11 Oct 2017 13:51
Thank you for your comments and feedback Seda.
Karen Pritchard says:

We are really looking forwards to teaching the Discovering Repetoire syllabi. Will there be any courses in the south of Spain? We are in Jerez de la frontera.

Thankyou

Dear Karen,

Thank you for your interest. Currently there is no launch event planned in Spain, however, there will be an introductory video available online. Discovering Repertoire resources will be available from January 2018, after which time teachers can begin delivering the work. Please check the website and e-news for future updates about courses for this new programme.

The 3 hour CPD workshop in the launch is it a syllabus workshop which involving physically demonstration?
Thanks
Sarah-Jane Lewis says:
06 Nov 2017 09:22
Dear Loo Yen,
Thank you for your interest. The 3 hour CPD workshop will involved both practical and theory: with a focus on observing, highlighting and discussing technical aspects of the basic class work as seen in Discovering Repertoire. With reference to the Discovering Repertoire DVD, participants will gain insight into how the learning of selected exercises and variations might be approached, along with the exploration of possible developmental exercises to support progression within and between levels of study. We hope this helps to answer your question.

I am looking forward to teaching this new syllabus and will be attending the launching in Singapore next year.
Can we purchase the resources during the launching or we have to order online? I received the pre launch sales order form and it's stated that we have to submit our order by mail in order to enjoy the Promo price. Is there a possibility that we can do it online?
Thank you
Ria Sarantaridou says:
22 Nov 2017 14:36
Hi Jennifer,
At the moment, as we are in the pre-order stage, the promotional offer and the products themselves are only available by filling in the form and returning it to us, but this can be via email.
The products will be available online to buy very soon, but once this happens we cannot guarantee the promotional offer can still be held.
June says:

Can the DVDs be pre-ordered by students at this time - or is this exclusively for RAD teachers?
Ria Sarantaridou says:
06 Dec 2017 13:39
Hi June,
Anyone can pre-order the resources, but it is only RAD members that get the discount.

I'd like to order the cds, books and dvds, but I am not quite sure about the promo-Set. Is the music book included in this package? Or does the package "only" include the cd, dvd and normal book? thanks for your answer.
Ria Sarantaridou says:
