The Solo Seal Award was introduced in 1928 as an additional examination for students who had achieved the Advanced Certificate with distinction. This is the highest Vocational Graded examination of the Royal Academy of Dance and focuses on solo performance. Candidates are required to perform three variations, which have been selected to meet the stylistic and movement demands of today’s choreographers and directors. The Solo Seal Award takes place in front of an invited audience and panel of judges, which normally consists of a Vocational Grades examiner and professional dancer or former dancer from a ballet company, approved by the artistic director of the Academy.
