UC Dance have 100% pass rates in all examinations taken to date with over 85% of our students achieving Distinction grades and achieving 90 marks or over.
Our dancer's take examinations in ballet, tap, modern, acrobatics, theatre craft, musical theatre and freestyle. We are also introducing contemporary dance and classical Greek dance examinations to our core subjects for 2021.
Our dancers can take examinations from 3 years, starting with the IDTA rosettes. This is a great introduction and builds confidence, team work, listening skills and commitment.
On completion of the examination the dancers receive a report, certificate and rosette, trophy or medal depending on the award taken.
We enjoy celebrating our dancers achievement with an exam presentation after each exam session, a great fun way to be proud of our achievements.
In 2020 Libbie Stokes took part in the IDTA Ballet scholarships in Manchester after being selected by her examiner in her ballet exam in 2019. This was a huge honour and we are incredibly proud of Libbie's achievements in such as short space of time.
We are also excited to announce that Layla Colligan has been nominated to attend the 2022 IDTA Ballet Scholarships in Manchester in February 2022 after her nomination from our most recent exams in July 2021.
