Classes 

Exeter Academy of Dance provides a variety of different classes for all different age groups, from the classic ballet to the modern street dance. 
 
All classes are taught by our highly trained teachers, all with vast experience across many different aspects of dance. 
 
The classes are all taught in line with their relevant syllabi, and we also provide examinations at the end of each course allowing the student to obtain different grades. 
 
Our classes are tailored from primary to advanced levels, so there's something for everyone. And of course, the most important aspect to them is that our students have fun! 
 
Please see below more information for the various classes we run. 
 
 
 

BALLET 

Ballet is the basis of many dance styles and is the foundation of all dance technique. It can teach the students many important attributes including balance, poise, discipline, musicality, and co-ordination which can open doors to many other dance styles and also facilitate achievements outside of dance. 
 
At the Exeter Academy of Dance, we teach the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus at both Graded and Vocational Graded levels. Children can take examinations at regular intervals and we are very proud of our 100% success rate. 
 
All ballet classes are taught by Suzie Amiet and Tara Smith and we also have coaching sessions by Royal Academy of Dance examiner Susan Dukes. 
 
Children can enjoy ballet from age 2½. 

TAP 

Tap classes are taught from age 4 at the Exeter Academy of Dance. Students can begin with the IDTA syllabus studied alongside their ballet sessions and then move on to the ISTD syllabus as they progress. 
 
Tap is a percussive style of dance which focuses on rhythm and co-ordination. It is fun and lively and provides an excellent opportunity to improve, musicality whilst learning the tap technique that has developed over the last 90 years. 
 
Suzie Amiet and Tara Smith teach the IDTA syllabus and Jane Harvey continues development using the ISTD grades and vocational grades.
