Ballet Exam Demonstration

We are proud to announce our first ever Ballet Exam Demonstration! Our ballet exam students have been working hard this year to learn and perfect their exam work from the Royal Academy of Dance vocational syllabi! Admission to this event is by donation, and all proceeds will go directly to the dancers to help offset their cost of training. It is very time-consuming and expensive to train in RAD exam work, including the cost of lessons, exam applications, and necessary equipment (like bodysuits and pointe shoes!). Your attendance and donation will go a long way to help support dancers in our community who want to study this beautiful artform in more depth.

The Royal Academy of Dance is an international organization that holds standardized exams all over the world. Some of our dancers are performing their exam with the RAD and some have chosen to learn the work for the purposes of self-study and personal achievement. This demonstration is an opportunity for those performing their exam to get some audience exposure, and for those not performing their exam to still have a milestone and a celebration for completing their training! Please see below for more details on schedule and event registration:

RAD Exams Complete!

Congratulations to five of our DAS dancers on completing their first ever vocational RAD exam, Intermediate Foundation level! Work began in October 2017, and their exams were performed on Sunday, March 25. We won’t know any marks until May likely, but regardless of the results, they have all succeeded in achieving something new and challenging for themselves! This would not have been possible without the help of Juliette’s Dance Centre and Dance Saskatchewan Inc for rehearsal space, and the supervision and support of Madame Juliette Perrey-Perez. Thank you, everyone.

Next year, Dance Alive hopes to continue exam training into the Intermediate level, as well as open up Intermediate Foundation again for a new crop of hopeful exam candidates. If you are at all interested in training for RAD exams with Dance Alive next season, please contact us and we’ll answer all the questions we can!

Adult Exam Classes

Adult Exam classes are underway. These classes are to teach adult students the Royal Academy of Dance Intermediate Foundation syllabus. They are held every Friday at 4:00pm (time may vary). Students have the option to apply to perform the exam in March 2018, to apply for examination at a later date, or to take the class without performing an exam.

Up-to-date and comprehensive class information is available for current students HERE.
