Exams

At EMPAS we currently do exams in Ballet, Modern/Jazz, Theatre Craft, Tap, Freestyle and Musical Theatre with the IDTA examination board. We hold approximately 4 exam sessions a year within our own studios at Newburn Old Town Hall and we always help pupils towards the successes they want, we have an excellent pass rate as well as very high marks across all subjects at all levels.

We also do LAMDA exams in singing and drama. We can also train dancers for their teachers exams with the IDTA and pupils have achieved excellent results.

Theatre Award Nominees and Results

The IDTA Theatre Awards are held once a year. They take all pupils from across the UK and all international schools who have showed potential in that subject while doing an IDTA exam.

IDTA Theatre Awards Achievements (2012-Present)

We receive many Theatre Award nominations yearly for the successes of the IDTA exam sessions we put forward. Over 6000 students are put forward for IDTA exam sessions every year and a select few are nominated for these scholarships. The Theatre Awards are held in Manchester yearly and students from schools internationally take part. They are nominated at certain grades (Grade 4+) by the IDTA examiner. The nominees all perform a class and a dance with a lecturer in front of an audience and awards are given at the end. We are lucky enough to have had pupils take part in these for a number of years and we have had some great successes in the past, see below.
