Our team of teachers are very experienced at preparing pupils for the prestigious exams of the Royal Academy of Dance (Ballet) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (Tap & Modern) and we have a long history of excellent results.

The vast majority of our pupils really enjoy the challenge and subsequent reward offered by taking part in these exams, however they are not compulsory, and children do not have to take them if they prefer not to.

We hold exams each term (except every other summer when we stage our show) and pupils will be entered when the teachers feel that they have reached the required standard and are ready to progress to the next level.

Parents of children being considered for an exam will receive a letter around the end of the term preceding the exam, which will detail the costs involved. We ask that all exam pupils attend some extra coaching to assist in their preparation and help them to achieve the best possible outcome in their exam.
