Grade 4/5 (2 days per week)

The focus for this level is to allow for the necessary developments of skills that underpin secure technique including core stability, weight placement, turn out and line, while continuing to nurture the students’ awareness of artistry, musicality and dynamics.  Musically inspired exercises and dances to motivate students to acquire a well rounded understanding of ballet and character, to promote joy in movement, and to develop a sense of performance quality.  The music for the syllabi is a glorious collection of three centuries of dance music, including recordings made exclusively for the RAD by the Orchestra of English National Ballet.
