Gain Valuable Feedback 


The CDTA offers Student Examinations in Ballet, Stage (Jazz, Tap & Acro) and Modern. The CDTA is a national examining body that aims to improve dance technique and performance.  Students who complete exams are often more focused and goal oriented in class, this leads to increased skill level and confidence in their dancing (and in general life).  Exams are also a great foundation for careers in dance related fields such as teaching.


A Solid Foundation


 The syllabus was created by a committee of dance educators from across the country, all with many years of teaching experience.The CDTA Syllabus aims to present teachers and students with the opportunity for incremental growth all while maintaining proper technical training at an age appopriate level.
