The Solo Seal examination was introduced in 1928 as an additional examination for students who had achieved the Advanced Certificate. This is the highest Vocational Graded examination of the Royal Academy of Dance and focuses on solo performance.
Candidates are required to perform three contrasting variations, which have been selected to meet the stylistic and technical demands of today’s choreographers and directors.
The Solo Seal takes place in front of an audience and panel of judges, which normally consists of a Vocational Grades Examiner and professional dancer or former dancer from a ballet company, approved by the Artistic Director of the Academy.
The aims of the Solo Seal are to provide students with an opportunity to achieve at a high level, and be assessed on variations performed in front of an audience.
Tickets are not available at the door. Online sales will be open unitl the event time for you to purchase tickets. The RAD policy prohibits people from being admitted once the performance has started. For those who arrive after the start time, seating will be after intermission.
