Examination Program

In Examination classes at Connie Parsons School of Dance we teach a progressive set of skills set by international governing bodies including the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and The Cecchetti Society of Canada (CSC). These classes are strict and disciplined and available in ballet, tap, and/or modern. The examination program at CPSOD is open to all students able to participate at the appropriate level. Placement is at the discretion of the school.

It is recommended that factors such as physical ability, focus to learn, desire to dance, and dedication to succeed will all be considered in making the decision to join the exam program. Once a child has mastered a particular level we enter them to be examined by an external examiner. Entrance to the exam is left to the discretion of the teacher and it may take an individual child or a group more than one year to complete each level. Involvement in exam classes will accelerate your progress. Exam classes are very important & beneficial, and highly recommended as well.
