I.S.T.D. Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing

Tap/ Jazz/ modern theatre.


Works to improve and promote the knowledge of the dance. To maintain and improve teaching standards


To provide through its syllabi, techniques upon which to train dancers for the profession.


The exam structure of the I.S.T.D. is designed to cater equally for the “once a week” child and the child who will go on to make dance his/her profession, either as a performer or as a teacher. The work progresses through each level, building on the lessons previously learned as well as adding new skills. Musicality and artistry are valued as highly technical execution and all syllabi are regularly reviewed to keep them up to date.


The professional examinations are structured to give the new teacher the best possible foundation from which to work. Care of the growing child is emphasized as knowledge of anatomy as it relates specifically to the dancer and the possible effects of dance on the growing body.
