Shows & Exams

performances and exams

The school offers weekly classes in the IDTA Syllabi, through which students prepare and take examinations biannually. We encourage all students to take exams as it gives them goals. Focusing on exams for a concentrated period improves the pupils technically, artistically and gives them confidence. Students start to take exams from the age of 6 and go right up to advanced level.

All of our students participate in a biannual end of year show. The performances are held in the Civic Theatre in Tallaght and Solstice Arts Centre in Navan. Live performances are what dance is all about and the opportunity to perform in costume, in a professional theatre, is for many a transformative experience. It allows children to express themselves and become anything, or anyone they want to be. Whether they go on to pursue a career in dance or not, these memories are some of the most powerful and precious that they will carry with them for ever. The experience of performing in front of an audience will help them grow in confidence for whatever they do in life.
