Classical Ballet

Royal Academy of Dance

“The RAD is one of the world’s most influential dance education organizations. We exams set standards in classical ballet and we are a global leader in Continuing Professional Development for dance.”

Creative -Ballet is a program 30 min offered to children aged 3.5-4.5 yrs old, allowing them to familiarize themselves with moving to music.

Pre-School Level 1 & Level 2 – ‘Dance to Your Own Tune’ Demonstration Class is the Royal Academy of Dance’s curriculum for children aged 2½ to 5 years offered by Royal Academy of Dancing Examinations Board.

The Graded syllabus (Pre-Primary, Primary in Dance, Grade 1 – 5) provides a broad practical dance education and develops technical, musical and performance skills (age 5+)

Vocational Graded Examinations (Intermediate Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced Foundation, Advanced 1, Advanced 2) provide an in-depth study of ballet and prepare students for a career in dance (age 11+). Note: Graded and Vocational Graded programmes can be taken at the same time according to teacher’s recommendations.

Discovering Repertoire is a classical ballet performance programme, an innovative new concept in training and assessment from the RAD. Uniquely, the programme includes well-known classical repertoire, meaning students will learn and dance choreography that they have seen on stage, set to music that they know and love.

Suitable for students from age 12 through to adult, the three levels cater for beginners, those with some prior ballet experience, as well as the more advanced dancer.

RAD classes are designed to stimulate the young children’s natural desire to dance. Carefully planned curriculum is presented in a fun, entertaining way that enhances coordination, musicality, and creative ability.

Dancing Soma provides a friendly, nurturing atmosphere where each child’s creative talent is exposed and incorporated into the art of classical ballet. Dancing Soma’s students are eager to learn and take pride in their accomplishments. Whether a student wishes to work toward a career in dance, or enjoys dancing as an extra-curricular activity, the young dancer’s changing body becomes a finely tuned instrument which deserves only the finest and most proper instruction. Only a truly experiences, professional teacher can guide a young dancer through the gradual and careful process of their training.

Our faculty concentrates on developing long lean lines, a strong technical foundation, freedom of movement, and the execution of movements with style and grace. We welcome enthusiastic students who enjoy the benefits from the traditions of a fine training in a nurturing environment.

Contemporary

For kinder, Junior and Senior Levels (aged form 7 +)

Contemporary Dance is a modern form of dance that incorporates steps from classical ballet and jazz. This umbrella term is used to classify a number of dance styles and methods; as a result it gives chorographers and dancers a wide range of styles to pull from.

Contemporary dances are classified by powerful and emotionally charged moves that convey a deeper message than words alone ever could. The main premise behind contemporary dance is expression, personality and emotion. This form of dance shows more focus on the individual dancer than other routines

Pre- Professional Classical Training

Pre- Professional Classical Training is aimed to developing the foundation of physical alignment, technique and elegance.

Classes are divided by level based on age and teacher recommendations. Proper training and alignment for a dancer cannot be achieved in only attending one or two classes per week.  Dancers are focused and précised in the positions of the body, the port de bras, use of head, coordination, musicality, strength and flexibility.

Dancers in all divisions are introduced to Pointe work, Character Dance, Variations, Contemporary and Dance Theory.  Dancers begin to develop body awareness and show the ability to express character and artistic maturity.
