JUMPSTART-  Royal Academy of Dance Ballet Intensive Program

Our four-day JUMPSTART program is designed for children ages 7 to 17 years who will be enrolling in RAD Ballet Examinable classes in the upcoming dance season.  This is a great chance for dancers to familiarize themselves with the ballet syllabi, in small, technique driven classes.  This program is ideal for any dancer looking to JUMPSTART their ballet training!

Please Note: Dancers interested in the opportunity to do their examination with Shift Dance Academy will still need to be assessed prior to exam registration. This is also a requirement for all dancers in the Competitive Program. Students are encouraged to pursue an exam each year to excel, progress and achieve.

The RAD offers a wide range of exams and assessments to motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities. All candidates who successfully pass an examination or award receive a certificate of achievement and a breakdown of their result.

The Higher Graded and Vocational Graded exams are accepted as a measure of achievement by professional dance schools. They are also highly valued by high schools, universities and other institutions offering degree courses and programs in the performing arts.


Classes will run Tuesday September 4th to Friday September 7th.
