Royal Academy of Dance Ballet Program

RAD BALLET

 PROGRAM

The Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D.) is a worldwide organization that governs ballet through a series of graded exams.
 

For ballet to retain its vigor, it is vital to have professional classical ballet teachers, equipped with internationally recognized qualifications. The Royal Academy of Dance is the largest examining and teacher education organization for classical ballet in the world.
 

Ballet exams are a set of predefined steps, exercises and dances that students learn and practice throughout the year. Each year, students register for these formal exams through the recommendation of their teacher. We request that the Royal Academy schedule our exams prior to Spring Break.
**please note that students can advance to the next graded level without completing an RAD Ballet Exam.
