Dance Exams

Examining Bodies, Syllabus & Benefits

Here at Carnaby School of Dance, we love prepping students for their Dance Examinations and are strong believers that Dance Exams help boost confidence, allow students to demonstrate their progress, gain a sense of personal achievement and work more enthusiastically during their classes. Our students sit Royal Academy of Dance Exams for Ballet and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing Exams for Tap and Jazz. We hold Exams three times per calendar year: every March (Spring), July (Summer) and November/December (Winter), and we pride ourselves on our 100% pass rate and exceptional results each Exam session.
