Higher Grades Ballet

Higher Grades Ballet

The ‘Higher Grades’ of the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus allow the students to further develop their classical vocabulary and make full use of their technique.  

Grades 6 has an emphasis on dance quality and performance. Exercises and dances are more challenging for all abilities. 

Grade 7 is influenced by the Neo-Classical ballet "La Sylphide". It further develops the young dancer's sense of style, musicality and performance.

Grade 8 Award is the final grade and reward for years of study. Each dancer must prepare a number of solos to perform for the examiner. We hope that most students will be able to gain the Award before moving onto further study at University or full-time dance training.

COMING SOON: Find out more about our dancers who have gained their Grade 8 Award...


We recommend that our Higher Grades students also attend Vocational graded classes to further strengthen and maintain their classical technique. We also encourage them to audition for associate schemes, workshops and holiday courses.
