Professional classical ballet training
Our initiation programs include preparation for the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) exams at the Pre-Primary in Dance (5-6 years) and Primary in Dance (6-7 years) levels. These exams offer students the opportunity to demonstrate their progress and technical skills in an internationally recognized testing environment.
The Elementary program covers the intermediate levels for the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) exams from 8 to 12 years of age. It consists of five grades in which students will acquire the fundamental knowledge of classical ballet, focusing on aspects such as precise technique, proper posture and the correct distribution of body weight.
In addition, they will develop their control and coordination, as well as the ability to express musicality through their movements. They will also be taught to use space effectively and to understand the different dynamic values found in dance.
Intermediate and Advanced Training
The Grade Vocational exams are designed for students 12/13 years of age and older who wish to obtain a certificate of professional level studies in classical ballet. These exams are divided into five levels: Intermediate Fondation, Intermedite, Advanced Fondation, Advanced 1 and Advanced 2.
The first level, Intermediate Fondation, seeks to strengthen and expand the knowledge and skills acquired in the previous levels, challenging students from different perspectives. The class includes bar exercises, center, improvisation section, variations and pointe section.
The Intermediate and Advanced Fondation levels aim to provide students with a greater technical and practical mastery of classical ballet, as well as a better knowledge of the music and the ability to communicate with the audience.
The Advanced 1 and Advanced 2 levels are the last two vocational exams. At these levels, students are expected to demonstrate a solid knowledge of classical ballet, including a wide range of movements, solid musical and theatrical interpretation, and a great capacity for expression and projection.
