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?

Thank you for your interest. We have noted your request and it will be considered when planning future courses.

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:

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
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 for your feedback Diane. Plans for future courses will be announced via RAD e-news and the website.

 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.
