Dance Examinations

 

We believe dance examinations are an important part of any dance education.

Dance examinations provide the opportunity for dancers to be assessed by highly qualified, experienced professionals on set curriculum (learnt in class). Individual assessments are made, providing important feedback to examination candidates.

By participating in dance examinations, dancers develop their skill set in extreme detail, providing goals to work towards. Dance examinations also provide a standard and knowledge of strengths and weaknesses in dance technique.

Dance examinations are recognized internationally, by professional programs alike and are a necessity for individuals wishing to pursue a dance teaching career with certification.
