RAD BALLET

RAD Ballet classes at Absolute Dance are offered from 2 yrs upwards and aim to teach students discipline, co-ordination, rhythm, musicality and performance whilst in a fun a friendly environment. 

The syllabi cover not just the classical ballet technique but also free movement and classical character work.  The children enjoy the character because of the heeled character shoes and long black character skirts as well as the rhythmic sections. Over the course of the 8 grades they learn steps from Hungary, Poland and Russia. 

With the free movement section they must learn to dance with a scarf and so increase the sensitivity and fluidity of dance movement.  The syllabi are split into grades depending on individual abilities and age.

Classical Ballet is the foundation of all other dance genres and so students will be required to attend 1 class a week.  Should students wish to take a dance exam in Classical Ballet they will be required to attend 2 classes a week.
