ELEVATE students are invited to participate in Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) examinations. The sessions are generally held in May + November each year in Sydney and eligibility is based on both the age of the student and their standard. 

A Rich History

The Royal Academy of Dance is the most internationally renowned and highly regarded syllabus for Ballet. It is recognised as the leading syllabus for ballet technique and training, providing the best results and opportunity for dancers who study it.

 

"Founded in 1920 to set standards for dance teaching within the UK, today we have a presence in 83 countries, with 36 offices and about 14,000 members worldwide. We count more than 1,000 students in our teacher training programmes and more than a quarter of a million students are being examined on our syllabi. We support our membership through the knowledge, and expertise of our highly qualified staff and through conferences, workshops, training courses and summer schools. "
