Examinations

We are an I.D.T.A (International Dance Teachers Association) affiliated dance school. Examinations can be taken in all subjects (except street dance) through the I.D.T.A; one of the world’s leading examination boards; 

Successful completion of higher exam grades including intermediate and advanced levels accrues UCAS tarrif points, potentially helping pupils to achieve entry requirements to some Universities (depending on the course being studied.)

The IDTA is an Ofqual, CCEA and Qualifications Wales recognised awarding organisation and a member of; the British Dance Council, the Council for Dance Education and Training (CDET), the Federation of Dance Awarding Bodies (FDAB), the Sport & Recreation Alliance (SRA) and the Theatre Dance Council International (TDCI).
