Children's Classes Leading to Examinations

Blackheath School of Dance is governed by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (I.S.T.D.), which is one of the largest and most experienced dance examining boards in the world. All students will have the opportunity to enter ISTD exams. Each grade involves specialised technique and performance based routines, which your child can achieve through examinations. We were recently invited by the Ballet Faculty of the I.S.T.D. to demonstrate the Ballet Syllabus at London headquarters, for the entire examining board.

At BSOD Ballet is our core dance subject, we also believe that all our other dance styles enhance the performance and technique so each student becomes the best dancer they can be. All students from grade 3 Ballet and above attend a weekly stretching and body conditioning class. From Grade 5 ballet upwards all students also attend a weekly Pointe work class.

Through carefully structured classes, we teach correct technique and aim to achieve the highest standards relative to each individual's physique and ability. We strive for exceptional classical line and quality of movement, and we encourage freedom of expression, particularly in the lower grades. Ballet is superb for developing excellent posture, strength and flexibility. Our classes are enjoyable and rewarding but require discipline, commitment and dedication. Our teachers provide a caring and supportive environment in which our students can thrive.

Students can study Ballet to an Intermediate level following the ISTD syllabus.
