COURSE OVERVIEW

We are currently offering Vocational Grades in ISTD Modern and Tap, to complement our Vocational provision in RAD Ballet.

The syllabus content provides a strong technical basis which develops through the grades to support the dancer at each stage of their journey, and the vocational grades compliment both professional dance and teacher training. 

A successful pass at Intermediate Examination will confer UCAS points, and also allow entry onto several Teacher Training courses, including the Diploma in Dance Education, also offered by Italia Conti. 

Further study to Advanced 1 would allow further progression on to Licentiate level courses. Below is a link to the ISTD website which gives more information about UCAS points at Intermediate:
