Although Dance Classes may have a different meaning for individual students, the policy of the Academy is to prepare every student for I.S.T.D. examinations in Ballet, Tap, Modern and National forms of dance, and to enter pupils for those examinations, as and when, the teacher deems them ready. A minimum age of three years old is required, and all grades and beginners are welcome. Students who are dancing for pleasure will not be put under any pressure to take exams, and every encouragement and support will be given to those students who wish to follow a professional career in the entertainment world. Pupils will also be given the opportunity to enter the British Arts annual awards competition, either in groups sections, or as soloists, this gives the students the added experience of meeting with and seeing how other Dance and Stage Schools are performing. Singing and Drama students work to performance standards and can also enter the British Arts awards competition in the varied sections, and are responsible for the scripted story line of the presentation annual show that is produced so that family, friends and the general public can see their progress. Trophy's and Medals for the years work will be awarded at this time.
Timetables will be arranged to meet the needs and requirements
of the Students, and classes may be split if the teacher feels that the
size inhibits the students progress. Classes will run concurrently to
maximise usage of the available Hall space.
