Product Description

From Library Journal

This title follows the updated International Examination Syllabus by illustrating a selection of exercises for pre-primary through grade five students taught at the Royal Academy of Dancing. Professional preparation is also discussed. Unfortunately, the illustrated instruction assumes a high level of knowledge and instructional assistance for comprehension, and access to the glossary is restricted by its awkward placement on page 14, between "How To Tie the Ribbons" and "Taking an Examination." Of greatest interest is the section that tracks a day in the life of two ballet students and provides eight short autobiographies of international dancers. For instructional purposes, the format is simply outmoded, as many dance guides are now on videocassette, including the Royal Academy's own 1991 videocassette, Grades Examinations Syllabus for Girls and Boys. For comprehensive dance collections only.

From Booklist

Gr. 4-6. A guide to classwork at the Royal Academy of Dancing in England, this book details everything from dress, hair, and shoes to advice on finding a good ballet school and taking dance examinations. A chapter on each class level explains the correct positions and movements for typical exercises, with clear black-and-white pencil drawings of children performing each step. First-person narratives of dancers at various stages of their careers and two sections of full-color performance photographs provide information and inspiration for young dancers, but the book's main value is its no-nonsense approach to the everyday practice of ballet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great help in my dancing Oct. 10 1999
Format:Paperback
Since I come from a family that moves around a lot, sometimes it's hard to find a serious quality dance studio. This book was a tremendous help in keeping me toned and in gear. It gives me the help I need to reach the height of my aptitude.

This book is great for the young ballet dancer. I just started the Royal Academy of Dance at Grade 3, and I wanted to catch up a little, so I got this book and I understand so much more in class! It's great, easy explanations, side reminders, ("Tummy in!") and also character dance tips.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pass July 31 2009
By Heather Rutherfordstone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I own a ballet studio and frequently seek out new teaching aids. This book was a huge disappointment. While my school does not teach RAD style I was under the impression that this book would provide a detailed syllabus of classes for all RAD levels offering potential insights for myself and students. Boy was I wrong! The book is filled with large drawings depicting between two and three movements per class. I would certainly hope that RAD teaches more than that over the course of a full year. The steps they chose to highlight are also no-brainer sorts of movements; skips for elementary students, butterfly stretches for young students, promenades for intermediate. For me, and I would hope most competent teachers, this book was completely useless.

By Robin L. Goddard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good illustrations and text especially for the beginner. It was too basic for my daughter who has had 5 years of ballet classes. I recommend it for the 1-2 year ballet student.
