I can think of several curriculums that are designed for training dancers starting from a young age and progressing them through to eventual vocational level training years later. The RAD curriculum has no upper age limit so a person can start to follow their scheme and standards of achievement at any age (including the taking of grade examinations), a one size fits all opportunity (i.e. no adjustments made to the curriculum for being an older age learner e.g. includes character dances)

On the other hand, the Nat'l Ballet School in Toronto offers a multi-level learning program (not drop-in classes format) that is geared specifically to (recreational / community track) adults and is offered throughout 11 months of the year.

I wonder, then, what other specifically adult-oriented curriculums might also exist (in the USA)? Have many other systems been devised?

(I can appreciate that offerings would be scarce given the low demand.)

This program, while not a formalized curriculum per se, is intended only for adults and is not drop in.
