What are Rambert Grades?
Rambert Grades is an awarding body, recognised by Ofqual. Our syllabus offers students the opportunity to develop lifelong skills. Rambert Grades encourages 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 and Creative. Our trained 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 voices.
Moments of Celebration: About Rambert Grades Exams
Rambert Grades exams are an integral part of the learning process. They mark each student’s progression and offer each dancer the opportunity to showcase their technical and performance skills, creativity and knowledge. Rambert Grades offers qualifications in contemporary dance, across four levels and eleven grades. Rambert Grades Graded Examinations sit on the Ofqual Register of Qualifications.
The technical strand is designed to support each dancer’s technical development as they progress through the grades. Rambert Grades is built on a relevance to professional practice, and teachers are trained to support each student as an individual to explore their full potential.
Each grade includes solo material from world class choreographers, Hofesh Shechter and Alesandra Seutin, exploring how to create material and improvise, and learning all elements of technical skill to the highest standard, from floorwork to complex leaps.
