Royal Academy of Dance examinations in ballet are offered annually. These are external assessments which are suited to talented and dedicated students who want to commit both time and energy to their ballet. Students need to attend ballet more than once a week and participate in additional workshops so that they may be well prepared for their exam. Many students have benefitted from the challenges of this type of assessment and the rewards and sense of achievement are significant.
