how do i get a place in a Eisteddfod tEAM?
Admittance to our Eisteddfod teams is by invitation or audition only.
Due to the high expectations of our eisteddfod team members, limited places will be offered. Current team members will not automatically be placed in performance dance classes. All current and new students will be required to attend an audition. If not placed in a eisteddfod dance class, children will attend one of the technique dance classes.
are there any compulsory classes?
& ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS
*All under 10's & 12's team members (regardless of styles/teams enrolled in) must attend a weekly ballet class. Under 15's team members must attend a weekly ballet class or advanced technique. Under 8's must attend either a weekly ballet class or junior combined technique.
*Ballet can be done in either a RAD exam class (2-3 classes per week) or casual RAD class (1 class per week - no exam).
