Ballet and Modern sometimes fuse together and enrich each other, which is why it is highly advisable that pupils take Modern dance alongside Ballet. Modern Theatre Dance constantly evolves and is always exciting and interesting.
At Whiteside’s School of Dance Modern Theatre dance is extremely popular and we are proud to have a 100% pass rate in ISTD examinations, with many girls achieving top grades. Exams are strongly recommended and each girl is prepared thoroughly before being entered.
Grade 1 modern is offered to pupils from the age of 5. Girls move up through the grades according to ability. Senior students can be entered for their major exams. When time allows, pupils study the ISTD jazz awards work which results in bronze, silver and gold medals.
