At Dynamic Moves Dance Studio we encourage students to take part in annual dance examinations.
Taking part in examinations enables students to formally identify whether their dance technique and ability are improving each year and enables them to progress through the dance syllabus formally.
Student who then wish to teach dance can then easily take part in teacher’s examinations, once they have completed all levels of class examinations.
EXAMINATIONS and PARTICIPATION ASSESSMENTS are available in each genre with the Australian Teachers of Dancing and the Royal Academy of Dancing.
There is a comprehensive and modern reporting system. The students receive certificates, reports and medals on successful completion of examinations.
The Grade System consists of:
- Dance Assessment 1 & 2;
- Tests 1, 2, & 3 (Grade 1, 2, 3)
- Bronze Medal (Grade 4)
- Bronze Star (Grade 5)
- Silver Medal (Grade 6)

- Gold Medal (Grade 8)
