About the new syllabi
The new RAD Grades 4 & 5 syllabi work to expand candidates’ ballet and Character technique and knowledge, allowing them to further explore movement and expression, building on the foundation of Grades 1 – 3. The syllabi, which have been developed from a learner-centred approach, lets students engage with a rich body of work, culminating in an examination ‘performance’.
The syllabi also prepare candidates for further study in dance; students are guided in a logical progression towards the higher levels – the complexity and difficulty steadily increases with the candidates’ abilities.
