At the school all our teachers are qualified and registered with at least one internationally recognised exam board. We follow the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus for ballet (www.rad.org.uk ) and Imperial Society for Teachers of Dance for Modern and Tap (www.istd.org ). Both are widely considered the best in their field.
