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.

The Syllabus
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.

Grades & Levels
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.
