Our new ballet exam classes allow you to work your way through accredited grades with the emphasis on tuition, technical skills and precision. Classes start Saturday 28 September.
This is the first opportunity to take an exam. Following the ISTD Primary syllabus, aimed for ages 5+ this class is a progression from pre-primary, therefore children aged 5 who are now looking to start ballet will be advised to attend the pre-primary class first.
There will be additional cost for taking an exam. There may be extra classes offered when working towards an exam which will also carry an additional charge. You will be required to wear a set uniform of a leotard, ballet shoes, tights/socks which will be discussed when you first join and again incurring a fee.
Cost: £94 per 12 week term

Entering participants for the Exam
For these classes weekly attendance is important, so participants don't miss important parts of the syllabus which they will be examined on. If a participant has missed numerous classes in the term it will make it difficult for us to enter participants for their exam.
The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) is a rigorous syllabus which has numerous requirements. The Garage Tutors understand the requirements for each grade, and will ensure that participants meet these before being put forward for an exam. We want our participants to feel confident and happy going into the exam so it is a positive experience. We do not want to enter children who might fail their exam as this could be affect their confidence.
If your child is not ready to take their exam, we will ensure that they feel no different to those taking an exam.
