'Rambert Grades'

We are delighted to announce that Rambert Grades will be coming to NJ Dance from September 2024! 

Rambert Grades is a pioneering contemporary dance syllabus born from the partnership between two of the world’s leading contemporary dance organisations: Rambert and Rambert School. 

Across eleven grades, the 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. The Rambert Grades syllabus is progressive and inclusive and is designed to be accessible for people from all backgrounds.

Rambert Grades 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 unique voices.

Each grade includes exploring how to create material and improvise, learning all elements of technical skill to the highest standard, from floorwork to complex leaps, and performing solo material from renowned choreographers, Hofesh Shechter and Alesandra Seutin.

Rambert Grades is an awarding organisation recognised by Ofqual. 

 

Creative Dance for Early Years 

 

Celebrating movement at the earliest stage, Rambert Grades Creative Dance classes encourage each child to explore movement, developing physical skills, harnessing musicality and encouraging confidence. 

Each class takes children on an imaginary journey with endless themes. An energetic warm up is followed by physical skills development, as children learn structured movement material. Creative intuition is encouraged with a closing creative exploration to dive deep into their imagination. Swimming with whales, flying rockets to the moon or adventuring through the desert- every class is different.

As children move through three grades, Creative Movers, Pre-Primary and Primary, we celebrate six qualities: Communication, Teamwork, Generosity, Effort, Listening and Enthusiasm. 

In line Grades 1-8 this syllabus is a fully accessible offering which celebrates all dancers in all bodies.
