CLASSICAL BALLET & TAP EXAMS
YCD are proud to be able to offer our students the opportunity to partcipate in CLASSICAL BALLET & TAP examinations annually with the Royal Academy Of Dancing & Glenn Wood Tap Syllabi.
YCD has gained exceptional results in both Ballet & Tap examinations over the 12 years we have been offering exams to our students. Our exam teaching staff are qualified with years of experience, they are extremley nurturing during our students exam journey and they ensuring absolute readiness and confidence leading into exams.
Our vast experience as dance educators shows that formal exams present a unique opportunity for the children to take pride in how hard they work. Our exam students always find their exam experience to be uplifting, beneficial & rewarding. Students are accountable for their work in class much more than non-exam students, therfore improving at a faster rate!
As a studio who values the growth & committment of our dancers of all ages we encourage our students to participate in exams as it does so much for overall dance technqiue!
Exams are not compulsory - however all students in Classical Ballet & Tap classes will work toward exams and do the same gradework in each Syllabus;
Examinations in Ballet and Tap are a wonderful stepping stone to working toward a dance qualification along with gaining excellent technical development in dance. Going through the examination process will possibly open many doors for future employment as a dance educator - along with gaining great life experience!
