The Imperial Society Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is one of the world's leading dance examination boards and covers the full range of dance genres.
The ISTD examination structure is designed to cater equally for those pursuing dance purely as a leisure activity as well as those who wish to progress to dancing professionally either as a performer or a dance teacher.
Examinations in Ballet, Tap and Modern dance are offered to pupils when they are able to demonstrate the required level of technique and syllabus knowledge. Exams are not compulsory but do offer a valuable learning experience and provide a fantastic sense of achievement. Pupils are very welcome to attend classes purely for fun.
Since Alison qualified as a teacher of the ISTD in 2003 she has entered many pupils for examinations and is very proud to have achieved a 100% pass rate.
