Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms. It provides the grace, poise, and technique needed to be proficient in all other areas of dance. Ballet classes will help dancers with posture, flexibility, fitness, balance, self-discipline, team work and self-confidence.
Spotlight follows the system of The Royal Academy of Dance which offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments designed to encourage, motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities, outlining a progressive structure for learning and achievement in dance.
Students start with the Pre-Primary and Primary levels and then into eight Graded and six Vocational Graded levels. Students can move from Graded Examinations to Vocational Graded Examinations at an appropriate time, or they can study both pathways simultaneously.
Spotlight offers classes and examinations in RAD Syllabus from Primary -Advanced1 (once the required level is attained)
Many of our students study RAD syllabus work alongside other styles of dance
Spotlight offers RAD ballet classes from the age of 3
In preparation for the examinations coaching classes are added on a Sunday at JFK School
Erna Kuenen – RAD examiner and Lynsey Bradshaw teach many of the coaching classes
