Juniors for children age 8 – 11 – Grades 1 – 4

Pupils should expect to do 18 – 24 months in each class, although pupils who have poor attendance may spend longer in each grade while those who show exceptional talent and commitment may progress at a quicker pace.  Pupils who show exceptional talent and commitment may progress quicker. due to our show which is held every 2nd year we work on a 2 year programme for each level.

Grade 1 Ballet, Tap and Modern

For children who have passed the Primary exams, performance awards or for new pupils age 8+. Most pupils attend all three dance styles but it is possible to enrol for one or two classes.  ISTD Modern and Tap are thirty minute classes while RAD Ballet is a forty-five minute class. Tap grades are structured differently and pupils may find they are in a higher grade for modern and ballet than they are for tap.
