ISTD Modern

ISTD Modern


The ISTD created their syllabus in 1932 and are continually changing and updating their syllabus. Through their carefully planned and well-tried examination syllabus, which combines modern dance, jazz and other dance styles, young people are trained to become disciplined and versatile dancers. Modern offers students the fast paced, energetic and fun style of dance that develops strength, flexibility, endurance and coordination with free work. Classes are offered from age 5yrs and enter examinations from Grade 1 upwards.

Overview
The examination structure of the ISTD is designed to cater equally for those who wish to progress to making dance their profession, either as a performer or dance teacher, and for those pursuing dance purely as a leisure activity. The teaching qualifications are structured to give the new teacher the best possible foundation from which to work, with a particular emphasis on safe dance practice and the needs of the growing child. ISTD provides syllabus outlines for examinations for children aged 5 years or over (primary-grade 6) and for adults and professionals (intermediate foundation, intermediate, advanced 1 & 2). All titles awarded by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing are internationally recognized.

Jazz Amalgamation
    Jazz dance, although it often has a formal choreographic basis, is strongly emotional and improvisational. The way a jazz dancer reacts to the music or to the narrative in one performance will likely be different from her reaction in another, simply because her emotional response, which arises at the moment, will never be quite the same twice.
Lyrical Amalgamation
    Lyrical dancers often perform to music with lyrics. The lyrics of the chosen song serve as inspiration for the dancers' movements and expressions. Music used for lyrical dance is typically emotionally charged and expressive. The musical genres used in lyrical dance include pop, rock, blues, hip-hop, ethnic and world music and different forms of "downtown" contemporary music, such as minimalism.
Modern Theatre Amalgamation
    Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps, and turns which all need strength and flexibility.

Graded Examinations In Dance
    The aim of Graded Examinations is to provide an assessment scheme for dance, which gives the basis for the measurement of the individual candidate's progress and development, whether the candidate is pursuing dance as a leisure activity or as preparation for a professional career as a dance teacher or performer. There are six practical examination grades, numbered from 1 to 6, in order to indicate the increasing order of difficulty (6 represents the highest level of attainment).
Vocational Graded Examinations In Dance
    The Vocational Graded Examinations in Modern Theatre, from Intermediate Foundation through to Advanced 2, develop the candidate's expertise in such a way as to provide the basis for either professional employment as a dancer or further training as a dance teacher.
