Examinations are conducted by an ISTD certified examiner. There is a Primary Examination and six Graded Examinations, guiding a student progressively towards perfection in presentation of Kathak Dance technique and repertoire. There are four Vocational Graded Examinations, which offer students a route to professional training either as a dancer or dance teacher. Both the Grades and Vocational Grades are approved by Ofqual and are on the Qualifications and Credit Framework


We are aligned with the ISTD Kathak Dance syllabus. REFER:
