ABOUT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF DANCE AND THE IMPERIAL SOCIETY METHODS
Royal Academy of Dance and Imperial Society of Great Britain are part of British Ballet Education, together covering every form of theatre dance. The gradual development of these British syllabi is known worldwide for being particularly sensitive to the teaching of young children and students. It contributes to the development of confidence, musicality, deportment and discipline. Above all, the syllabi are designed to bring pleasure as well as a sense of worthwhile achievement to the student, who is required to meet a standard in order to progress from one level to the next.
The curriculum is divided into graded levels. The dance student must master each level before advancing to the next.
