Turning Pointe Academy’s staff is pleased to be members of A.D.A.P.T. (Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers) for Jazz and Tap and the R.A.D. (Royal Academy of Dance) for Ballet. Students training through the syllabi of both these associations may be offered the opportunity to participate in dance examinations and presentations during our dance year. A certified examiner provided by each association conducts these examinations. Grade level requirements vary and some students may require multiple years of training in order to complete an examination. Students interested in the graded examination stream will be required to attend additional classes.
