We generally hold 2 exam sessions per year, which are a combination of graded and medal test exams.
Graded exams are mainly technique-based, and are usually taken a maximum once per year, or when the child is ready to take the exams. We currently work towards graded exams in:
Modern- ISTD syllabus
Ballet- UKA syllabus
Contemporary- iD Company syllabus
Musical Theatre- UKA syllabus
Acro- UKA syllabus
Medal test exams are more performance-based and offer confidence boosts and rewards in between the graded exam sessions. We also offer medal tests in some other genres of dance that do not have grades to work towards.
