This intensive week-long workshop is for teen and adult dancers who are interested in joining, or are already enrolled in our Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) ballet exam program. It is ideal for dancers who have at least 3 years of ballet training, or who are dancing at a RAD Grade Four level or higher. This workshop is a great way to get back into dancing shape before regular Fall classes start up again!
