Are you ready for the next challenge?

Take your dancing to the next level by taking an exam in Ballet!

We are offering students of all ages and abilities the opportunity to take an exam in Ballet during the summer term of 2021. We have a 100% pass rate, often receiving the highest mark of Distinction for over half our student’s results at all levels.  We follow the highly respected BBODance examination board for our examinations.

Working towards taking an exam in the level you are studying is an excellent and rewarding way of improving your technique and progressing to the next level.  Students find that the extra work involved in preparing for exams is challenging but highly rewarding and enjoyable!  Exams are taken in small groups of 4 students and friendships are often forged and strengthened through the process

Are BBODance Exams Vocational? 
The first exam our children take is their Primary Ballet exam, which is our only non-vocational examination.  From Grade 1 – Grade 8, including Intermediate Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced 1 & 2 the examinations are vocational and carry UCAS points.

Brighton Ballet School is an inclusive school and our examinations and assessments are available to everyone. Students with disabilities or extra needs will be given the support they need to achieve success.

Private Coaching Classes :
We offer private classes on either a one to one basis, or shared private classes with up to two students attending, at a cost of £35.00/£40.00  per hour, depending on upon us being able to book a venue for the class.  Costs will only be more than this if rental charges are above our usual hiring fee for whatever reason.  We may suggest closer to the time that a private or shared private is necessary to ensure your success in your examination.

Access to the BBO Syllabus Content?

We are able to offer our exam students access to the BBO syllabus exam music, written syllabus and videos at a cost of £10 per student.  This is a one-off payment and your access will expire on 31st July 2021.  Why are we charging?  To be a registered teacher of BBO I have to pay well over £300 for access to this content therefore we feel it is only fair that charge our students for access to this content accordingly.  To gain access to these resources please use the link attached below on the booking form. Don’t forget if you are an ODS member you will already have access to the BBODance Content via your membership.

Please contact us for more information or any questions you have.  Once you have submitted this form we will send you more details about the requirements on the day including specific arrival times, examination sets etc.

Good Luck from all of us at Brighton Ballet School!
