What are dance Exams?
Dance exams are held only once per year. It is a time for our students to perform and gain feedback from all the hard work they have put in in the first 2 terms of the year.
Dance exams teach the students discipline and etiquette and help to enhance performance skills, boost self-esteem and confidence. The achievements of dance exams can also be used later in life. Whether it be through a student continuing down a dance avenue as they grow older or in a CV to show commitment and seriousness to an extra curricular subject.
How does the examination process work?
An examiner will come to our studio and assess the students on the work they have been learning throughout the first 2 terms of the year. Students enter the exam in groups of up to 8 so they will not be alone. They are required to wear correct Aspire uniform, hair is to be up and tidy and no jewellery, earings, nailpolsh, etc is to be worn.
Once the exam is over the students will have a great feeling of achievement and their work will be recognized when they receive their report mark sheet and syllabus certificate. The mark sheet will give students feedback on what they did well in their exam and where they can improve as they continue through the levels.
Here at Aspire we strive to celebrate improvement and love to watch our students grow within themselves, and their dance and performance abilities when given opportunities like this.
