Harborough Academy of Performing Arts – Exams

We offer a range of exams and assessments to motivate and reward our students of all ages and abilities. Our focus is on a sound technique, developing creativity, musicality, confidence and providing opportunities to progress and achieve.

Our examinations are externally monitored by the Royal Academy of Dance (Ballet) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (Modern Jazz & Tap). These are internationally recognized Dance Associations with excellent reputations for the high standards maintained by their accredited teachers, which is a great reassurance for parents to know that their children are receiving expert tuition.

Whilst exams are not compulsory at HAPA, most students are keen to participate and gain a great deal of confidence and motivation throughout the process. The higher grades are awarded UCAS points which is of benefit to older students when applying to universities and further education.
