JUMP Dance Academy classes follow the syllabi set by the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) and the RAD (Royal Academy of Dance).

We have an excellent exam success rate with 100% of pupils passing with Merit or Distinction.

When they have reached the appropriate standard, children will be given the opportunity to take an exam if they wish to. Entry to exams is at the discretion of the Principal. 

Although not mandatory, exams are encouraged for the benefit of the children as they aid confidence and learning. They help to ensure children learn dance in a structured way, reaching the appropriate standard before moving to the next level. In addition, exams give children a goal to work towards and an achievement to feel proud of.


Vocational and graded exams are also now recognized as part of the national qualifications framework.
