The Royal Academy of Dance today launched Discovering Repertoire, a new, classical ballet performance programme for students from age 12 through to adult.
Drawing on some of the most famous and much-loved works from the classical ballet repertoire, students can study choreography from Coppélia, Giselle, Paquita, The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker and Swan Lake. This unique programme provides the opportunity for students to develop their musicality, expressiveness and artistry, whilst learning more about ballet’s most popular stories and music.
Discovering Repertoire is modular and flexible to cater to a broad range of experience and to be practical for all ages. It comprises three levels for male and female, and can be taught in addition to or instead of RAD syllabus work. There is also the option to take an exam at the end of each unit. Each is designed to stand alone or allow students to progress from the barre to the variation with ease, using development exercises to build up to a well-known work from the classical repertoire.
