Adult Assessment Programme – Available Now

The New AICD Adult Syllabus Is now available in the Store

As a result of numerous requests from teachers, the A.I.C.D. has created an ‘Adult Assessment Programme’. This six-level programme is aimed at the Adult Ballet student and is designed for people who have no training in classical ballet, those who have been part of adult ballet classes for a year or two, or individuals returning to ballet after a hiatus of many years. It has an age focus of pre-adult (16/17), through to the more mature-aged student.

The new syllabus is available through the AICD Store .
