About Cariad Ballet
Cariad Ballet -> Love Ballet!
Director Michelle Harrison wanted to give a nod to her Welsh heritage and her passion for dance with her school name: Cariad Ballet. Her and her teachers inspire students to be happy, hardworking and the best dancers they can possibly be. Their expertise helps bring the beautiful art form of ballet to all ages, genders, races, backgrounds and abilities; providing an inclusive learning environment where students can improve their self-confidence, expression, co-ordination, posture, team-work and creativity.
Our classes are enjoyable and friendly but also challenging and disciplined. They range from pre-school to adult, from recreational to professional, from groups to private lessons. We follow the globally recognised Royal Academy of Dance syllabus and students have the rewarding opportunity to take class awards and examinations from the age of five.
RAD qualifications are part of the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
An RAD exam can earn you the equivalent of a GCSE,
A-Level or Diploma; providing UCAS points for university.
