Why We Do Exams
It is the preparation for exams that makes our dancers so strong. Our studio prepares for exams in Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Acro to which you can accomplish a teaching certificate for each one individually. Our exam work is based on the syllabus by the B.A.T.D. Using this syllabus our teachers have sculpted many a young student into remarkable dancers, culminating with careers starting at Wonderland and reaching as far as Broadway.
The B.A.T.D teaching certificate is a highly recognized achievement on university applications and a qualifying prerequisite for teaching dance in the school system, a city recreation program or in a private studio.
Exams are also a positive experience for the younger student. They develop confidence and can demonstrate the rewards of working towards a goal. Most exam work can be accomplished in one class per week.
