The Modern syllabus blends Modern Dance, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary & Commercial styles, transforming students into disciplined & versatile dancers. Modern Theatre is a rhythmic style of dance which embraces a variety of music. It adapts, develops & evolves with the changing fashions of dance & first originated in America before travelling across the rest of the world.
From the age of 5, your child can begin a Primary Modern class, which leads to an exam. This takes the form of a class test, with an examiner watching a class taken by the children's normal teacher. The examiner will assess the response, knowledge & movement of each child during the class. This is an excellent way of gradually introducing children to the idea of exams, where in the future they may be entered without the teacher's presence.
After Primary, students can progress through Grades 1-6. For those who are dedicated & are interested in dance as a career, they can begin to enter vocational examinations at four levels (Intermediate-Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced 1 & Advanced 2), which are examined at a professional level.
