Examinations

All children are given the opportunity to take exams in Ballet, Jazz, Street Dance and Acro-Dance as they progress through our academy.

We follow the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), the International Dance Teacher’s Association (IDTA) and Acrobatic Arts syllabus.
There is no pressure for children to take examinations, but we make them a positive experience, giving children confidence, a measure of progression and a sense of achievement for their hard work. We are proud of our 100% pass rate in all exams.

Shows

Throughout the year we give dancers the opportunity to perform, showcasing their talent and skills to family and friends in our academy recitals.

This also allows parents to see their progression and the hard work that dancers put in to prepare for examinations.
Every other year, we hold our Academy Showcase, where all our dancers get the opportunity to perform on stage in a professional theatre.
This is an exciting time for the dancers and teachers, from preparing routines to getting costumes ready and seeing everyone come together on stage.

Uniform

Dance uniform is essential for all students to allow freedom of movement and expression.

It creates a sense of belonging and identity, encouraging discipline.
It also facilitates high quality teaching and fun environment which is enjoyable for all. After the initial free trial, it is compulsory for students to wear our regulation uniform to each class. This uniform will also be used for official examinations and in our dance shows.
We also ask that dancers take off all jewellery and have their hair neat and tidy.
To purchase uniform, please speak to our staff at Academy or via our online shop.
