The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is one of the world’s leading dance examination boards, offering a comprehensive range of dance styles for students of all ages and abilities. From Ballet and Tap to Modern and Contemporary, the ISTD syllabus is designed to provide a structured and progressive approach to dance education.

Here are just a few of the many benefits of learning to dance using the ISTD syllabus which is incorporated into our classes at VBDance.

Consistency and Quality:  The ISTD syllabus provides a consistent and high-quality approach to dance education, ensuring that students receive the same level of training and instruction no matter where they study. This ensures that students have a solid foundation and can progress to higher levels of dance with ease.

Structured Progression:  The ISTD syllabus is designed to provide a structured and progressive approach to dance education, allowing students to build their skills and confidence over time. Each level of the syllabus builds on the previous level, ensuring that students have a strong foundation and are ready to tackle more advanced dance techniques.

Technical Accuracy: The ISTD syllabus places a strong emphasis on technical accuracy, ensuring that students learn proper technique and form from the very beginning. This attention to detail helps students to develop a strong foundation and prevent injury, allowing them to progress to more advanced dance techniques with ease.

International Recognition:  The ISTD syllabus is recognised and respected around the world, making it a valuable asset for students who wish to pursue a career in dance. The syllabus is also used by many professional dance companies and schools, providing students with a competitive edge in the dance world.

Opportunities for Performance: The ISTD syllabus provides many opportunities for students to showcase their skills and perform in front of an audience. This can be a great way for students to gain confidence, build their skills, and connect with other dancers.

At our dance school, we are proud to offer classes that follow the ISTD syllabus. Our teachers are highly trained and experienced in teaching dance using this approach, and we have seen firsthand the many benefits that it provides to our students.
