When choosing a studio, there are a couple of important considerations:

  1.  Does the dance studio have a certified exam instructor?
  2.  Does the certified instructor have a long history of successfully helping students pass exams?

In order to offer exam-based syllabus, a studio MUST have a teacher who is certified through a governing body, such as the Royal Academy of Dance.  A dance teacher who wishes to become certified must undergo additional training through a rigorous certification program.  

  1. Fortunately, TLC not only has a certified teacher, we have a teacher qualified to administer RAD CBTS training!! In other words, we are honoured to have a certified teacher that can teach other teachers to become certified! 
  2. Our teachers have helped over 500 students successfully pass exams with over a decade of experience.

As such, TLC Danceworks is proud to be able to offer our students exams in four different syllabi (see below)

ALL exams are by invitation only.
