How is The International Dance Studio recognized?
We have a long history in providing quality dance instruction to Canberra and since 2011 we have successfully passed over 756 medal candidates under the Imperial Society of the Teachers of Dance (I.S.T.D), London U.K, syllabus.
This is an internationally recognized society that founded the principles of Ballroom and Latin dancing. We are accredited under DanceSport Australia and conduct examinations under the Federal Association of the Teacher of Dance in Australia (F.A.T.D).
The directors of the studio, Vaughan and Alison are both 4 times World Professional 10 Dance Representatives, Australian Professional Ballroom, Latin and New Vogue finalists at National Championships. They have also completed all their Medal Examinations to the highest level and are Accredited teachers.
If your goal is to take your dancing to the highest level then Medal Exams are the starting point to excellent dancing. In the history of all outstanding dancers, you will find that Medal Exams were an integral part of their success.
We invite you to participate in our exams and would be honoured to share our rich heritage of Ballroom, Latin and New Vogue principles, technique and tradition.
WHAT IF I HAVE DONE MEDALS IN ANOTHER STUDIO OR SYSTEM?
We will take that into account and assess your level according to our standard. Each studio generally will have different standards and gradings. We want to make sure you are in the appropriate category so you do the best medal you can with us.
WHEN ARE EXAMS HELD?
We only conduct exams once per year, in November. Dates announced at beginning of New Year.
IS THERE A SEPERATE COST TO THE EXAMS?
Yes. Each medal you do has a cost to it which covers bringing a highly qualified examiner from interstate, hire, medal costs, administration and other expenses.
DO YOU OFFER A "TASTER" OR FREE CLASS?
No, but we can offer you a FREE class if you pre-purchase an 8-Dance Card above, you collect it on your first lesson and we stamp the first 4 lessons out of it for you to use upfront. It saves you $25 over 8 classes and gives you 1 free, essentially you're paying for 7 classes but get access to 8 classes. They easily roll over month to month you just need to register for each month you dance with us. It expires within 6-months and is non-refundable, exchanged or transferable.
Otherwise, just pay for your first 4 classes selecting the appropriate ticket option.
If you already have an 8-dance card or wish to buy one using cash, simply select the Pre-Paid option and pay upon the FIRST lesson on the FIRST DATE. You are agreeing to buy a card and be clipped for 4 classes regardless if you turn up on the first date or not as you're taking someone else's place.
