Primary (Transition) RAD Ballet

RAD Primary Transition Ballet (Year 1) is suitable for pupils in Year 1 at school aged 5-6. It bridges the gap between the RAD Pre-Primary and Primary grades.

Primary (Transition) RAD Ballet

In Primary Transition pupils are gradually introduced to more complex ballet steps and combinations such as walking with stretched feet, and stretching the feet and legs with correct alignment and use of turnout. Students also begin to jump a lot more with the introduction of hops, jumps, springs and leaps which are expected to be rhythmical and performed with lightness and stretch through the legs and feet. The exercises become longer and more aerobicly demanding, and the floor patterns much more complex as children are expected to travel with co-ordination and a good understanding of transfer of weight. The Primary transition grade sets the foundations ready for Primary ballet and future examinations if the student so wishes. 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.

UNIFORM

It’s at this level that we require pupils to wear the regulation RAD ballet uniform in either Pink or Aquamarine.
