Examinations are offered in most of our classes from around the forth year level up.
Currently we offer examinations with the following organisations
- Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) – ballet exams
- Jazz Dance New Zealand (JDNZ) – jazz, contemporary and hip hop exams
- New Zealand Association of Modern Dance (NZAMD) – jazz, ballet, hip hop and contemporary exams
Students perform set exercises and a dance for an examiner and are graded for their work.
Exams are great for students who like to have something to work towards during the year.Most exams are performed in groups with classmates.
During the first two-three terms of the year our classes learn and work on set exercises and dances that are performed for exams.
Most exams are graded, however there are options for those who wish to take part in an exam like situation without being graded. (please see Medal Tests)
There are no spectators for exams.
