Rambert Grades

After a successful pilot in Australia last year, our collaboration with Rambert Grades is now global!

This collaboration brings together two world-leading dance education and training brands in an exciting new relationship. Both have a shared passion for dance underpinned by excellence in teaching practice and a desire to widen access.

A new and inclusive Contemporary Dance syllabus

Together we are introducing a new opportunity for RAD members to expand their dance offering by accessing this progressive and inclusive contemporary dance syllabus. It was created by two of the world’s leading contemporary dance organisations: Rambert School and Rambert Company. Rambert Grades is a new awarding organisation, accredited by Ofqual.

The course also offers 10 hours per year of Independent CPD for RAD teachers.
