RAD Vocational Intermediate
Valerie Holgers RAD RTS
Teacher approval or evaluation required. Please call ABC for evaluation. Class meets Mondays 6:30 - 8:00pm and Wednesday 4:30-5:45 Academie de Ballet Classique’s RAD VOCATIONAL INTERMEDIATE FOUNDATION - an RAD preparation course works towards mastery of the challenging choreography of the RAD’s Vocational set exercises and variations. Dancers work towards a goal of achieving a high level of skill and quality. What does all that mean? It means students work towards more than learning the steps, instead they acquire a mastery and artistry of the work to a level that progresses easily to the RAD Vocational Intermediate levels. With the ballet vocabulary learned in the lower graded levels, dancers increase their ballet knowledge to a high degree along with a more stylized approach. Some enchainements and all of the dances are performed as solos, building confidence with big smiles at the achievements made. We ask that all Vocational dancers arrive 15 - 30 minutes prior to the commencement of class to perform a simple warmup and stretching routine of their choice. Piano accompaniment to enrich the class experience allows for music to be the perfect tempo and pitch.  Students' musicality deepens as they follow the musician's interpretation of each musical piece.  ABC is the only studio in Central Oregon to use live music for regularly scheduled classes. For more information on the Royal Academy of Dance Program please visit Royal Academy of Dance - Achieve. As the only school in Central Oregon providing Royal Academy of Dance programs, we help students reach their personal best through careful instruction. As with all of our curriculum, the Learning Outcomes and Progression Assessments for Vocational Intermediate are:  apply and demonstrate sound knowledge and understanding of the mechanics and purpose of ballet vocabulary  respond to and interpret direction correctly  demonstrate strength, stamina, and a disciplined approach in a range of technical movement skills with a challenging level of choreographic demand  demonstrate a clear understanding of a range of rhythmical sounds, accents and timings  demonstrate a clear understanding of musical interpretation with a challenging level of choreographic demand  demonstrate the ability to engage an audience  demonstrate an awareness of the subtleties of performance with a challenging level of choreographic demand Dress Code: Ladies: Navy camisole leotard with matching waist belt, pink tights, pink leather ballet shoes.

RAD Vocational Advanced
Valerie Holgers RAD RTS
Previous teacher approval for this advanced level is required. Academie de Ballet Classique’s RAD VOCATIONAL Advanced - an RAD preparation course works towards mastery of the challenging choreography of the RAD’s Vocational set exercises and variations. Dancers work towards a goal of achieving a high level of skill and quality. What does all that mean? It means students work towards more than learning the steps, instead they acquire a mastery and artistry of the work to a level that progresses easily to the RAD Vocational advanced levels. With the ballet vocabulary learned in the lower graded levels, dancers increase their ballet knowledge to a high degree along with a more stylized approach. Some enchainements and all of the dances are performed as solos, building confidence with big smiles at the achievements made. Piano accompaniment to enrich the class experience allows for music to be the perfect tempo and pitch.  Students' musicality deepens as they follow the musician's interpretation of each musical piece.  ABC is the only studio in Central Oregon to use live music for regularly scheduled classes.
