About the Royal Academy of Dance

The Royal Academy of Dance is one of the world's most influential dance education and training organisations.

We promote knowledge, understanding and practice of dance internationally. We seek to accomplish this through promoting dance, educating and training students and teachers and providing examinations to set standards and reward achievement.

The RAD has a long history of improving dance training standards. It was founded in 1920 to re-invigorate dance teaching within the UK; however, over time it has expanded its influence and activities internationally counting currently more than 1,000 students in full-time or part-time teacher training programmes. With our examination syllabus being taught to more than a quarter of a million students worldwide, we help and encourage our teachers to perfect their teaching skills and pass on this knowledge to their students.

Exams

The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments which is designed to motivate and encourage students of all ages and levels of ability, through a systematic measurement of progress and attainment. Examinations are organised and administered by the RAD Examinations Board.

Students may start with the Pre-School Dance Curriculum, move up through Pre-Primary and Primary levels and then into eight Graded levels or six Vocational Graded levels. Students may move from the Graded pathway to the Vocational Graded pathway at an appropriate time; or they may study both pathways simultaneously.

We offer examination programmes to suit all, whether students are new to ballet or already have dance experience. There are no upper age limits and both male and female students can enter.



Class Assessments

Class Assessments are based on the examination syllabus but are not marked, this is an option for students who may start late or don't feel they are up to examination standard, but deserve to be recognised for the work they have done all year.

Solo Performance

This is another new innovation by the RAD, this provides students with an option to improve performance skills as an alternative to Exams or as a supplement to exams. Students receive an RAD Bar (like a medal) and a certificate. As this is a new option I will update this segment once more information is available.

Vocational Exams

The Vocational Graded Examinations in Dance syllabus provides an in-depth study of ballet, develops technique, music and performance skills and introduces pointe work for female candidates. It prepares students for a career in dance and is appropriate for students from the age of eleven years.
