Welcome to the Dance Academy of South Africa
The Dance Academy of South Africa, or DASA, strives to achieve excellence in dance, especially ballet, by aspiring to world-class standards. We are constantly training and developing our teachers and students, optimising the development of the whole child by using a compassionate and caring approach.
The DASA ballet syllabus ranges from Tiny Tots for 4 to 6 year olds through Grades to Advanced Performance for senior students. DASA also offers an exciting array of medal dances, including ballet, modern and national dances, which provide an opportunity for students to perform and experience different dance styles. Examination grading varies for each grade. Tiny Tots and Petit Performer Medal Dances are awarded Merit if successful and Pre-Primary candidates are graded, but percentages are not given. The rest of the Grades from Primary upwards are awarded percentages, which range from a Pass (40%) to Distinction (80%+). Medal Dances are awarded a symbol from D to A++ and receive a medal mounted on a ribbon.
For more information regarding current events or the history of DASA, please view the News & Events and About Us pages. Thank you for visiting our website, and please feel free to Contact Us if you have any queries, or if would like to join our uniquely South African “family”.
