Brighton Dance Academy encourages all students to extend themselves and continually improve in their regular RAD classes. Students who excel in these classes are invited to participate in dance extension classes. We offer three levels of extension:
Junior Dance Extension Classes (grades 1-4)
Intermediate Dance Extension Classes (grades 6-8)
Senior Dance Extension Classes (completed all grades and working through vocational levels)
Student entry to the extension class is at the discretion of the teacher. Students must consistently demonstrate the following attributes:
Selection for the extension class does not guarantee entry the next year. This means that students must maintain their commitment to the class and continue to satisfy the selection criteria.
Participation in the extension class is a privilege. To reflect this, we ask for a commitment of no less than 90% attendance to regular and extension classes.
A note on payment
Extension classes at Brighton Dance Academy are free of charge. We believe that this opportunity should not be restricted to those who can pay extra fees and we are pleased to be able to develop our students in this way.
