Examinations

ISTD examinations in Tap, Imperial Ballet, Modern and Jazz are held throughout the KPSD school year.  However, exams are optional and if a student does not want to participate they will still move up to the next grade if we are satisfied that they are ready.  We will inform all parents of examination dates and an application form will need to be completed and the relevant fees paid as soon as possible.  (Please note that exam fees are non-refundable).  It is the responsibility of the student and their parent / guardian to ensure correct uniform is worn on the day of the examination.  Items can be ordered from Karen Rogers but please be aware that out-of-stock items may take up to 28 days for delivery.
