Medallist Exams and Competitions


If you wish to progress your learning, then taking medal examinations is a great way to focus on your dancing and concentrate on your technique. As members of the ISTD, the exams are a perfect tool to receive quality feedback from an ISTD examiner, with constructive comments and encouragement, and a way to see your progression in your dancing.

The ISTD medal series, offers the best foundation for both pupil and teacher to qualify your dancing, and help you to become the kind of dancer you wish to be.

Exams can be taken throughout the year at both the Watford and Hemel venues.

Most medallists, at a certain level, will usually supplement their class work with private tuition, so they are fully prepared and ready for the examination.


As a medallist, you will also have the opportunity of competing against other medallists at the same level as you. This adds again to your learning, and improves your dancing 'know-how', increasing your confidence and offering you new and exciting goals.

Medallist competitions are on offer throughout the year, with the climax being the Grand Finals, which is held every year at the magnificent Winter Gardens, Blackpool, to those who have qualified. It is a truly amazing Ballroom, that holds memories of Dance Legends from the past and present, and to those who qualify, becomes a truly memorable experience.
