Theatre Street is a registered BTDA school, which is accredited by the Council for Dance Education & Training. Our students are eligible to take part in graded exams which are assessed by an external examiner, usually we have exam days twice a year. We have a 100% pass rate in all disciplines, since our first exams in 2003.
Some are closed examinations taken just with the examiner, while some are performanced based and we have an audience for. We will communicate with you when we are suggesting your child is ready to enter an exam.
None of our exams are compulsory, but sometimes the ability to move ahead or up to another classs may rely on proceeding through grades.
Entry is based on ability and readiness, and not always on age. Exams take place at our Studios, usually on a weekend or in half term.
A list of our examination fees can be found in our Parent Pages.
