Ballet encourages self-discipline and self expression, developing listening skills, encouraging children to follow instruction, learning to work as an individual and in groups, developing co-ordination, good posture, strength and suppleness. Ballet also provides a nurturing environment for the development of artistry and musical appreciation. RAD Grade 4 and 5 constitute Level 2 of the RAD’s Graded syllabus and are equivalent to GCSE Grade A*-C or NVQ Level 2. The underlying philosophy of Grade 4 and 5 is to expand upon the foundations nurtured in Pre-Primary and Primary in Dance and Grade 1-3, providing students with a sequential syllabus that will promote a developmentally appropriate and sound technique for ballet, underpinning secure technique including core stability, weight placement, turn out and line, while continuing to nurture the student’s awareness of artistry musicality and dynamics. Students will have the opportunity to showcase what they have learnt through choreography in our annual and upper school shows, as well as well as the chance to perform with Studio 19 at Disneyland Paris. Taking exams in this grade is optional for students.
