Dance Exams at our school are open to all pupils at all levels and the students in this class video are preparing for their Grade 4 ISTD Ballet Qualification.
Guest tutor, Miss Elizabeth Henderson is seen here giving the girls a ‘mock exam’ , containing all the elements of the exam itself in preparation for the day when an official ISTD accredited examiner from the ISTD in London visits Dance UK to conduct the examinations.
The examination structure 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 serious hobby. Equally importantly, the exams accrue UCAS points for entry to University so are a very worthwhile qualification to hold.
At Dance UK we have been delivering premiere dance education in and around Glasgow for over 30 years and the above clip was shot at our School, based in Bellahouston Park, where we opened in 1989.
Our aim of “Bringing ballet to Bellahouston” is still as strong today with hundreds of dancers from all over training with us year after year.
Thanks to fantastic support from local parents over the years ,we have established a solid reputation for excellence and value in equal measure and being in the same location on the same day for so long has allowed us to build a strong community link where we see generations of parents and pupils enjoying a life of dance, fun and fitness which gives us pleasure and inspiration to achieve even more in the next 30 years!
Exciting times ahead for everyone who makes ‘Dance UK’ what it is today.
A place to dance, a place to learn, a place to grow,
