The aim of the ballet course at Reddam House is to engage the students, kinaesthetically, kinetically, spatially, visually, inter and intra-personally. The objective is to offer Ballet as a dedicated elective subject for all students wishing to participate with the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus to achieve and maintain a strong classical technique for all dance, and explore the children’s creative potential. Classes will be set around two hours weekly. The class has a strong emphasis on the classical technique, stretching and strengthening the body incorporating Pilates Mat work. During this time the teacher will provide a thorough and personalised guidance to each member of the class. The elective has adopted the RAD syllabus as it has a strong focus on creating the foundations for dancers. As there is a strong emphasis on technique, Open Syllabus class is also taught and designed to focus on and perfect certain movements.
