Starlight Dance Academy



Starlight Dance Academy follows the ABD (Associated Board of Dance) syllabi.

The Associated Board of Dance (ABD) is a dance examination board that offers accredited technical examinations and medal tests in all forms of dance. These examinations demand a very high standard of work and are highly-respected within the dance industry.

At Starlight we offer ABD examinations and medal tests in the following subjects:

  • Classical Ballet
  • Character Ballet
  • Theatre Dance
  • Modern/Jazz
  • Tap
  • Acrobatic
  • Song and Dance
  • Musical Theatre
  • Lyrical
  • Cheerleading
  • Speech and Drama

Students will have the opportunity to take exams in all disciplines when their teacher feels they are ready to achieve a good standard of work. We have a 100% pass rate with many students achieving marks with Honours and gaining scholarships.

Whilst all students will be taught the grade work in class, exams are not compulsory. However, at Starlight Dance Academy we believe these exams have an important role to play in students’ progression and development and we will encourage students to take the exams when we feel they are ready.
