RAD syllabus ballet classes & coaching towards external examinations are offered at Palais Dance Studio, at Grades, Higher Grades and Vocational Grades levels.
Established in 1989, our ballet school has an outstanding track record of 100% passes with good results in the annual RAD ballet examinations. We offer the RAD ballet syllabus from the new Pre-Primary in Dance (PPID) and Primary in Dance (PID) levels onwards, with candidates successfully entered for the external RAD Ballet Examination & Class Awards each year.
The opportunity to gain a recognised external certificate provides an achievable goal for our students to work towards, at each level of their learning. The RAD Grades syllabus from the new Grade 1 to the Grade 8 Award incorporates Classical Ballet, Free Movement and Character Dance, which broadens our students' exposure to & experience with various dance genres.
Students who may wish to pursue a professional career in dance, performing arts & related fields have the opportunity to learn the RAD Vocational Grades ballet syllabus ( including pointe work for female dancers ) from the new Intermediate Foundation to Advanced levels.
Our faculty are qualified & experienced RAD Registered Teachers (RAD RTS.) The high calibre of our instructors is reflected in their external professional appointments:
We are honoured that our Vice-Principal, Teo Ching Ching (Miss) is appointed as the first RAD Ballet Examiner from Singapore. Miss Teo has assessed students of ballet schools in (alphabetical order): Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Portugal, Spain and Turkey.
Our Principal, Tan Eng Ai (Ms.) is appointed as a Mentor and Practical Teaching Supervisor ( PTS) by the RAD Faculty of Education. As a PTS, Ms. Tan assesses the classroom teaching competency of trainee ballet teachers who are enrolled in the RAD distance-learning Certificate of Ballet Teaching Studies (CBTS) programme. In 2011, Ms. Tan was awarded Life Membership of the RAD, on account of her continued service & dedication to the Academy.
Lessons are conducted at our recently-renovated, spacious, purpose-built dance studio that is equipped with wall-to-wall ballet barres and mirrors, and an 'Aerothrust' sprung floor with dance mat surface. Our studio is the RAD Approved Venue (RAV) for the annual RAD Vocational (pre-professional) ballet examination session in Singapore.
