We follow the ISTD modern syllabus for grade and vocational examinations; this is the core subject for all up to date styles and is made up of many sections, encouraging musicality and individuality. The class work consists of limbering and strengthening work followed by short dance combinations and full dances. The IDTA syllabus is also followed for rosette awards, star awards and medal tests as children love to collect these as they progress.

The use of up to date music is now widely encouraged in the modern work to appeal to changing tastes of children and teenagers. Modern dance  is a perfect choice for a healthy way to keep fit and learn the basics needed for follow on styles such as Jazz, Street jazz and hip hop.


We like to encourage individual taste for modern dance therefore children and students are free to choose their own colour as long as it is matching.

The style can be leotard and matching tights or an all in one (unitard)

Black split sole jazz shoes are required for every level.

We have a school logo T shirt that can be worn in class or a black X over is acceptable.
