Teen Ballet Students

Do you have to do exams? No

Examinations (though the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance ISTD and Royal Academy of Dance) are offered from Grade 2 upwards but are not mandatory.

The school believes in giving pupils the opportunity to express themselves, their talent and feel a sense of achievement through the examination process where it is deemed appropriate.

Students can also choose to enter Vocational Examinations and auditions.  For some students performance work can be a preferred option or just regular class attendance.

Examinations are optional extras.  The school would in no way hold any child back in their development should they choose not to undertake an exam.
