The Department adopts teaching methods that emphasise the establishment of a solid foundation and the development of artistic expression. Courses are specifically designed to combine technical training with stage performance. The Students are required to sit for the graded examinations conducted by Royal Academy of Dance and to participate actively in performances so as to gain an in-depth understanding of the art form itself.

Certification
