Grade 4 Ballet with Pointe Work
These structured classes develop students’ physical skills, stamina, creativity, expression and musicality using a range of movements and musical styles.
Royal Academy of Dance Examination or Class Award is offered to students who are the correct age, prepared and ready after four terms. Class Awards and examinations are optional.
The Royal Academy of Dance Graded Examinations consists of three dance disciplines:
Ballet – the foundation and the most important part of the syllabus.
Free Movement – influenced by and incorporating movements in common with other dance styles such as Natural Movement, Contemporary and Classical Greek Dance.
Character – the theatrical presentation of national dance using original ethnic dance and music which has been freely adapted for the theatre. The three styles — Hungarian, Russian and Polish — were selected because of their historic importance in the development of the nineteenth century full-length classical ballets.
From Grade 4 we introduce Demi Pointe strengthening exercises to prepare the students for a safe transition en Pointe. Before moving en pointe the student will take a Pre Pointe Assessment and this will be based on the students’ individual capabilities. To ensure a good development and progression, it is necessary to attend two weekly classes.
