• Applications received after the advertised closing dates will only be accepted if there is space available or if a cancellation occurs. Telephone applications cannot be accepted.

• The London Centre is designed to accommodate teachers entering Grade and Class examinations who have a total entry of under 3½ hours. Regretfully entries of more than this cannot be accepted.

• Teachers may stipulate the reason for any impossible dates on their application form if necessary. We will attempt to allocate your examination accordingly, however, this cannot be guaranteed. With particular reference to Fellowship and Licentiate examinations, it is hoped that applicants will make themselves available for all the advertised dates.

• It is advised that Tap Grade candidates are familiar with both the Brian Dee Trio and Guy Dearden set syllabus CDs where there is a choice.

Please contact the Centre Examinations Administrator to verify dates for Professional Cecchetti exams and all National and Classical Greek exams.

DDI & DDE (Unit 4):
Applications for these examinations can only be accepted if candidates have a specific reason why they cannot be entered at the Approved Dance Centre (ADC) with which they are registered.
