From September 2014, Hampton Court House is going to offer Ballet lessons with the Royal Academy of Dance to its students.
From Nursery to Year 4 the lessons will be integrated in the timetable of the children; from Year 5 upwards, there will be two after school clubs (Year 5 to Year 7 and Year 8 to Year 11). The Royal Academy of Dance is one of the world’s most influential dance education organisations. Their exams set standards in classical ballet worldwide and they are a global leader in dance education and continuing professional development for dance.
Hampton Court House will follow the RAD’s syllabus: Dance Your Own Tune for the children from 3 to 5 years old; the Graded Syllabus (Primary in Dance and Grade 1-8) will provide a broad practical dance education and develops technical, musical and performance skills. www.rad.org.uk
