Our Vocational Modern Theatre classes begin at Intermediate through to Advanced 2 level. Students are trained in a more intense learning environment, to stretch and challenge their expertise in preparation for either a professional dance career or further training as a dance teacher.

Students are required to be fully committed at this level, with an intensified focus on safe dance practice; training between 45 – 60 minutes per week and often engage in further independent training at home where self-motivation and discipline is key.

Classes are focused on developing and training the student to become highly versatile in their level of performance and communication; with a sound underpinning of the knowledge and understanding of the Tap Dance genre. The class demands a committed, motivated and mature approach, which is far greater than the graded examinations.

Students will be examined by a visiting Examiner from the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance.

Parents are invited once a term to watch a class is action as we feel it’s important to see students’ progression and level of engagement and enjoyment in the class. This is a wonderful experience for parents and a lovely end to each term.
