xaminations in RAD Ballet are taken each year. Exams are totally optional. RAD Ballet exams do expect a certain standard, and not every child is capable of sitting these exams. Students from the school also attend Easter Ballet seminars each year as a final push for the Ballet exams usually held around May each year. Students are also encouraged to have a few Private Lessons just prior to their exams for some more one on one work to strive to achieve the best possible mark. Perfect grooming including a new leotard, new shoes and stockings as well as the character shoes and skirt are also all required and must be of the highest standard.
Exams are encouraged so that students strive to achieve goals. The exams once completed, help a child work thru their years of dance, and may help them in further years to come should they wish to teach.
