Student Medal Tests

Annually, we invite a credited examiner to evaluate our students' progress using the USISTD Standard. These "Medal Tests" are used to universally measure and define the level of  skill for each individual dancer.

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

Have more fun, learn faster, and become a better dancer
