All children in whatever grade or class will be considered, when the required standard has been achieved, to enter into an examination held at the RAD Headquarters in Battersea. Examinations are held 3 times a year. However, it is not compulsory to sit the Academy's examinations and will greatly depend on the confidence of the child and interest shown by the parent.
In addition talented children will be encouraged to audition to be a Junior or Mid Associate with the Royal Ballet School and Central Ballet School.
However, not all children want to make ballet a career or have the physical requirements but just wish to learn ballet out of pure enjoyment and it must be stressed that all children will benefit from dance classes with better posture, enhanced musicality, concentration, making new friends and just general competitive ability within the classes.
