The leading dance syllabus in North America, Indonesia, and Hong Kong.

ADAPT is a certified "dance syllabus" offering yearly examinations in the dance disciplines of Jazz, Tap, and Ballet.

As leaders in quality dance training, we aspire to teach the love of dance and movement to those around us.

Request an exam today for the 2015 / 2016 dance season - click here to start.

ADAPT examinations are available to all students of ADAPT schools. ADAPT Certified Teachers who wish to enter students into the examination process have to apply for an "examination date". If a dance teacher chooses to teach the ADAPT Syllabus dance work, it is the teacher's responsibility to attend ADAPT teacher courses. Dance teachers must keep up with syllabus revisions and, at all times, uphold the ADAPT standard.

Visit our examinations page, for more information on ADAPT examinations including proper dress attire, examinations results, and more.



Register today for our 2016 T.T.S. and Assistant Teacher Program - click here to start.

The ADAPT "Teacher's Training School" program is to encourage and train senior dancers and assistant teachers who are interested in becoming professional "dance teachers" as well as existing dance teachers who are already teaching and are interested in improving their teaching skills and earning their "ADAPT Certification".

Teacher's Training School is a graduating, seven-day intensive "learn to teach dance" course held each summer for three consecutive years. It is a progressive three year program and participants are expected to attend all three summers in order to achieve their "ADAPT TEACHER’S CERTIFICATE". Attendees must be 18 years of age or older.



New editions of our ADAPT syllabus books are now available - click here to order.

ADAPT Syllabus Books are exclusive to ADAPT and provide teachers, examiners, and students with guidelines for learning and/or teaching the ADAPT academic material in a dance studio setting.

Additionally, we now offer an online syllabus that can be accessed on-the-go from your laptop, smartphone, or tablet! To purchase the latest ADAPT syllabus books or sign-up for the ADAPT today - visit our Products page.
