I hope all students take this opportunity to consolidate their dance tuition and receive a well-earned reward for the hard work and consistent effort they have invested in their ballet classes to date.

Dancers doing an exam are required to attend ALL their ballet classes as well as additional coaching classes by RAD Examiners, Mock Exam and 5th Element Dance Holiday School.

The rewards for working towards and achieving a goal are numerous, and students find the examination process positive and rewarding.
