for IDTA modern jazz it's a minimum of 10 years for bronze, but for other genres such as ballet, tap etc it's 8 years for bronze. Entry is at the discretion of the teacher though - just because a child is old enough doesn't mean they are ready to take an exam, so if you are enquiring as a parent (as opposed to a teacher) please be guided by your child's teacher

I have no IDTA experience but this implies age 10

Yes, that's right, 10 years for bronze.

Prior to that, juvenile is from 6 years and preliminary is from 8 years.
