Classical Ballet

 

With over 14,000 members’ spread across 85 countries, The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) is one of the largest and most influential dance education and training organisations in the world.

 

Established in 1920, to improve standards and re-invigorate dance training initially within the UK, the Academy helps and encourages its teachers to perfect their teaching skills and pass on this knowledge to their students. The examination syllabus is taught to more than a quarter of a million students worldwide. 

 

We offer a variety of grades, including vocational, and our students sit and partake in exams annually. Please contact us to arrange an interview with our Head of Classical Ballet Ms. Amy Fitzpatrick to discuss placement in these classes at ben@commotion.com.au
