INTRODUCING this pioneering CONTEMPORARY DANCE syllabus born from the partnership between two of the world's leading contemporary dance organisations: Rambert Dance Company and Rambert School. The 8-grade syllabus offers students the opportunity to develop lifelong skills.
Rambert Grades encourage young people to own their individuality, be playful, work in a present manner, think independently, relate with others and have confidence in decision making while learning and embodying our three strands: Technique - Performance - Creative
The Rambert Grades syllabus is progressive and inclusive and is designed to be accessible for people from all backgrounds.
Rambert Grades teachers are taught to promote a safe environment where physical explorations can exist without rigidity, yet with focus, discipline, and collaboration. Students are seen as individuals and encouraged to express their ideas and discover their unique voices.
Each grade includes exploring how to create material and improvise; learning all elements of technical skill to the highest standard from floorwork to complex leaps and performing solo material from renowned choreographers Hofesh Shechter and Alesandra Seutin.
RAMBERT GRADES IS AN AWARDING ORGANISATION RECOGNISED BY THE OFFICE OF QUALIFICATIONS & EXAMINATIONS REGULATIONS ( OFQUAL)
