Adult Ballet Exams??

Hi,

 

I'd like to know whether primary level ballet exams are offered to adults? (24 years old) I've done RAD up to grade 4 when I was young and would really like to pick it up but I've heard that RAD put an age limit for entering graded exams. Are there any other similar ones which allow adult candidates?

 

Thank in advance for any help. :)

Hi yichun,

my school is based on RAD too. RAD does have a age limit for entering graded exam, but that's only for minimum age. So, you can always go for exams if you want. But instead of taking the General Graded exams, as you're 24, why not try for Higher Grades Syllabi (Grade 6, 7 and 8?)?? At the same time, you can also take the Vocational Graded classes like the Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate. It'll help to strengthen your technique. :devil:

I stopped ballet in my late teens, I had just moved from Grade 5 to pre-ele. I started back 2 years ago and I took classes in Grade 6,7 and Intermediate Foundation. I took my grade 6 and 7 exam last May and passed with Merit!!

 

I now take Grade 5,7, Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate. I hope to take my Inter Foundation exam next May.

 

With regards to Inter foundation you might not be able to do pointe work if you haven't done it before. Your teacher will be able to assess you.

sounds like like your doing what I want to do :giveup:

 

going to stay with grade 6 and add classes at Pineapple/danceworks when I can afford them, then I'll start Inter-foundation etc
