Grade 3 and above
We want our Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) based classes to stay imaginative, guiding students through the demands of classical technique with constant encouragement and inspiration.
Our training consist of ballet technique, free work and character work to prepare our students to RAD examinations.
Our classes have the added benefit of Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) too. We have added this technique to our curiculum to enhance their physical strength making them stronger dancers and candidates for exams.
PBT is an innovative program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in classical ballet. Marie has been known for her creative teaching skills for over 40 years and has trained many professional dancers and teachers’ worldwide. She has experimented with outstanding success the use of muscle memory to improve students understanding of core stability, weight placement and alignment for over 12 years. She has passed on her knowledge down to our teachers who are qualified to use her technique in parallel with our RAD training.
