Ballet has evolved greatly since the original traditional ballets were created. SEA supports teaching the RAD syllabus as it provides students to experience classes that are well structured with age appropriate progressions in a fun, safe and exciting dance environment. The RAD is London based and has been established for over 90 years. The RAD is one of the largest dance organisations in the world with over 14,000 members in 79 countries, including about 7,500 who hold Registered Teacher Status. Each year about 250,000 candidates enter RAD examinations worldwide. Queen Elizabeth II is a patron of the RAD, and Prima Ballerina Darcey Bussell was elected to serve as President in 2012.
Classes range from age 4 in Pre Primary Ballet through all levels up to Advanced Foundation. Examinations are offered and recommended as the students thoroughly enjoy and gain confidence from the experience. The students are presented with a certificate and medal as recognition of their hard work.
