Contemporary Grades

Contemporary Grades

Cascade offer students aged 7 - 19 years a chance to gain qualifications in Contemporary Dance through the National Association of Teachers of Dancing. Dancers can take grades 1 to 6 and progress onto Inter- Foundation and Intermediate levels. Since offering these grades in 2013, Cascade have secured a 100% pass rate for all exams including a 95 % Merit - Distinction grade achievement.

Our Contemporary grade classes are primarily run on Saturdays in Tunbridge Wells through our Cascade Junior and Cascade Youth companies.
