idst_PBC0893-EditFounded in 1904, The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is the worlds leading dance examinations board. Once they have achieved the necessary standard, pupils have the opportunity to take ISTD graded examinations in Imperial Ballet, Tap and Modern Dance from Primary Level to Grade 6 and through to their major examinations. Examinations are not compulsory. Pupils who do not wish to take examinations will still continue onto the next grade, regardless.  The Stoller School of Dancing has maintained a 100% pass rate in all ISTD examinations throughout the years.

  • ISTD examinations in Tap and Modern Dance are held annually in February at Albury Village Hall.
  • ISTD examinations in Imperial Ballet are held annually in March, locally or at the ISTD London Headquarters.
