British theater of dance

Autograph school of dance holds three exam sessions each year. It is not compulsory to take part in all or any of these.

Exams, Rose awards and Medals are offered following the BTDA program of study and awarded by GQAL (Graded Qualifications Alliance)



Preparation for graded exams develops high standards of performance, perception, creativity, knowledge and understanding. Additionally the grades provide a scheme of clear standards to measure progress in acquiring skill required in each discipline, whether for educational vocation or social purpose.

BTDA graded qualifications fit into the qualifications and credit framework (QCF)
