Graded Examination Syllabus
The Graded syllabus consists of three different components; classical, free movement and character dance.
The Classical work is the foundation and the most important part of the Graded Syllabi.
The free movement section incorporates movements in common with other dance styles such as natural movement, contemporary based dance and Greek dance.
Character dance is the theatrical presentation of national dance using original ethnic dance and music which has been freely adapted for the theatre. There are three styles - Hungarian, Russian and Polish - and these were selected because of their historic importance in the development of the traditional full-length classical ballets.
Pupils will be offered entry to exams at the appropriate time for their age and skills.
Pupils have to wear an exam uniform for these exams. Hair has to be neat and tidy and if the hair is long enough it should be put into a bun. Ponytails are not acceptable.
