By this stage pupils will have come up through previous ISTD grades. Following on from ISTD Grade 6 Modern the syllabus provides a base for continued professional progression within the Intermediate syllabus. Intermediate modern is a vocational exam, the first in a series of professional level exams which are the minimum requirement for entry to vocational dance school. ISTD Intermediate level also carries UCAS points and can be counted towards university and higher education applications.
Intermediate modern demands a secure technique, increased core stability, weight placement, clean and strong lines, and also continuing to nurture the students musical awareness. Modern Theatre dance originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high energy kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. For Intermediate ISTD Modern and Tap, candidates should wear a black leotard with black stirrup leggings.
