The Royal Academy of Dance
The Way The World Learns Ballet
Your Child Couldn't Be In Safer Hands
Dance Workshop of Hanover's classes are structured following the Royal Academy of Dance Graded Syllabus of Progression. The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), is the largest examining and training body of classical ballet in the world, with it's syllabus taught in over 72 countries worldwide setting high standards and correct training for students.
Trained examiners travel the world annually examining students and teachers of the RAD Syllabus, ensuring the correct and safe training for students at every level. The Syllabus has been designed with great care, progressing children in stages, demanding no more than a young body can easily cope. Not only is the Syllabus great fun for children to dance, it also helps to develop co-ordination, fitness and a sense of rhythm, musicality and expression, as well as promoting self-discipline and boosting confidence.
Dance Workshop of Hanover students may choose to participate in the annual Presentations/Examinations. Each year our DWH students eagerly await exam time! Ballet is no more competitive than any other activity, and the examinations are simply setting goals towards which students can work. Examinations offer students a challenge and a great sense of achievement; for the parents they give an indication of their child's progress and for the teacher they present proof of their expertise and professionalism.
When enrolling your child at Dance Workshop of Hanover, you may feel secure in knowing that you have made a good choice. Whether or not students wish to participate in RAD exams, all DWH students from our youngest Creative Movement students to our most advanced dancers will receive safe and correct instruction, each realizing the satisfaction of becoming a knowledgeable, confident dancer.
