The Susan Zalcman School of Ballet follows the Royal Academy’s system of training. The opportunity to be entered for exams or assessments is offered to all children, when ready. These are designed to provide the children with both a goal and a subsequent sense of achievement. It is important that students are well prepared for these exams and that sufficient time is allowed for them to develop the necessary technical skills and artistic qualities required at any given level.

Each student who is keen to be entered is recommended to attend 2 classes a week. This will enable them to feel confident about their work and therefore be seen at their best.
