I can see from other threads I am not the only adult who is doing (or has done) RAD Intermediate Foundation, and I thought I would start a new thread for sharing experiences, past and present. I started studying the syllabus in the autumn term 2015. Having started with one Inter Foundation class, I am doing two classes each week at RAD HQ and having a private lesson with my local teacher. I had hoped to be able to do the exam in this summer, but my teachers don’t think I am quite ready. I am really hoping for the November/December exam, but it does mean keeping everything up over the school summer holiday. Pirouettes and allegro are my main problem areas (and also not looking tense!) Pointe work in the centre also needs work.
Hello all, I am taking my IDTA Grade 5 and Intermediate ballet exams at the end of April and am just looking for any tips on how to impress the examiner (what they are looking for, high leg/low leg, smile etc) Also I am on my own in the Intermediate exam and so am a bit more scared because of that! If anybody knows the IDTA intermediate syllabus, it is very much 'exercise-y' rather than 'dance-y'! I have 2.5 hours in between the exams, and so am also looking for advice on what to do in the gap, so as to keep warm and flexible but not exhausted! I REALLY want to get Distinctions in these exams! Thank you!
