Dance Examinations and Awards 

Dance transforms images, ideas and feelings into movement sequences that are emotionally and socially significant. It provides a context for understanding the world and contributes to cultural and personal development in both applied and expressive contexts. Dance offers opportunities for the exploration, discovery and development of natural instincts for movement and offers many benefits for individuals by encouraging aesthetic and emotional development as well as enhancing motor skills.

BTDA is committed to ensuring access to all who have the capacity to safely participate in dance and offers a range of examinations and awards to recognise an individual's achievements.
