Student Medal Tests

Bi-annually, we invite a highly accredited examiner into our dance studio to evaluate our students' progress using the prestigious Dance Vision Syllabus and Standards.

 

These "Medal Tests" are used to universally measure and define the level of  skill for each individual dancer. They are a great goal for students and dance teachers alike!

Medal Tests are milestones which mark the completion of one level and open the door to the next.

Next Medal Test: TBD
