Studio 23 teaches the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) ballet syllabus. These ballet classes develop your technique and deportment; give you strength and flexibility, and, of course, beautiful, graceful movement. Ballet can be learnt purely for these purposes but students can also choose to take part in an exam at the end of the year.
Class grades Ballet classes are graded by age and ability. Age requirements do apply for all students preparing for the exam and the outline below shows the minimum age for students of that grade.
Not all students will be prepared for the exam by the minimum age so it is fine for students to be older than the minimum age for their grade. In fact, this is often preferred, especially for those new to ballet.
