Grade 3 RAD Ballet
RAD Grade 3 ballet is suitable for pupils in Year 7 at school age 11-12. By this stage many pupils will have come up through the previous grades, although new pupils and absolute beginners are very welcome.
RAD Grades 1-3 constitute Level 1 of the RAD’s Graded syllabus and are equivalent to GCSE Grades D-G NVQ level 1.RAD Grades 1-3 promote “feeling before form” where the children are unafraid to try out new sensations of spinning, leaping and balancing. Musically inspired exercises motivate students to acquire a well rounded understanding of ballet and character and promote joy in movement, sense of dance and performance quality. The music for Grades 1-3 is a glorious collection of three centuries of dance music, played live by our wonderful pianist Ruth. 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. Students start to learn Ukranian dancing in their character work in Grade 3, and are required to wear the higher or Cuban heal shoe. Students can also start to wear the navy leotards from Grade 3 upwards.
We require pupils to wear the regulation RAD ballet uniform.
