    Introduction and Overview

    About the Syllabus

    We are delighted to present this newly reviewed Syllabus which contains the set work for the Grade 5

    Examination in Dance (Classical Ballet). The Syllabus should be used in conjunction with the Specification,

    Syllabus Film and Syllabus Music for Grade 5. Together, these resources provide comprehensive information

    and guidance for teachers which can be downloaded from our website.

    Classical Ballet has been an integral part of bbodance history. The syllabus was originally devised by John

    Field and Anne Heaton Field in 1988 and was revised in 1999. The work has been carefully preserved and

    cherished as a unique legacy. Some details may have changed along the way but the syllabus retains its

    allegiance to the vocabulary and style of the British school of ballet.

    Note on Terminology

    To ensure consistency, the ballet terminology in this syllabus adheres to a single source, namely Gail Grant,

    (1967) Technical Manual and Dictionary of Classical Ballet. New York: Dover Publications.

    The Specification

    Grade 5 continues a series of qualifications which are recognised in England and Wales and form part of the

    Regulated Framework (RQF) at Level 2. Successful completion of the Examination leads to the following

    qualification:

    BBO Level 2 Award in Graded Examinations in Dance: Grade 5

    Full details of the Examination for Grade 5 in Classical Ballet can be found in the Specification, including

    duration, recommended uniform and assessment criteria. Please note that Specifications for all Graded and

    Vocational Graded Examinations are available via the website.

    The Syllabus Film

    In addition to the written word, teachers will benefit from the Syllabus Film which is available on the website

    and can be downloaded for free. The film shows each exercise being taught to students (female and male)

    and demonstrated with the music, providing clarification of musical timing, coordination of the arms and use of

    head. Whilst the film is intended as a resource for teachers, extracts may be shown to students as part of the

    learning process.

    The Syllabus Music

    The music for Grade 5 Classical Ballet is available as a CD which can be purchased from bbodance.

    Composed by Peter Jones, the music has remained in its original form and continues to inspire teachers and

    students alike. For the 2017 revision of sources, a new voice over has been added.

    Note on Examinations

    This updated syllabus will come into effect from 1st January 2018 and will supersede all previous versions.

    Teachers are advised to use this newest version in preparing students for examinations. From 1st January, all

    examinations will refer to the 2017 syllabus edition of Grades 1-5 Classical Ballet.
