    IDTA Level 4 Diploma

    She specified she wanted a warm up facing the barre, but then wasn't particularly specific over the other exercises. i found it a really lovely exam to do, good luck with yours!xx

    IDTA Level 4 Diploma

    Hi Claudstar, I took this exam in April so will hopefully be able to advise. No, you’re not allowed notes, and the examiner only observes you teach then you have a conversation with her after the class when the students have left the room. the examiner will write down what she wants you to teach, then you’ll have 10 minutes to think before the students come in. I’d prepared possible exercises but didn’t end up needing them in the exam! I was asked to teach a barre warm up, an adage in the centre, an exercise involving pas de basque, an exercise to develop musicality, and a cool down. Do you know the age/grade of the students in your class? This might help you, to think of any new steps that are in their grade, or any steps that they’ve done in lower grades as the examiner will likely ask for an exercise involving one or two particular steps from the set work. It’s a non syllabus class so she won’t expect you to teach a set exercise. let me know if you have any more questions!xx

    Royal Swedish Ballet International Program

    My friend recently graduated from the 1 year International students’ course at Royal Swedish Ballet School, and is now training at a well known school in Europe. From what I have heard, the course was very good, with small class sizes, beautiful facilities and opportunities to perform with the Royal Swedish Ballet. Stockholm is a gorgeous city although quite cold and dark in the winter!! Hope this helps x

    Which Role Would You Dance?

    Odette.... of course But I also love the sincerity of Nikiya in La Bayadere, and the music for the Entrance of the Shades is so gorgeous that I wouldn’t mind all those arabesques either!
