Why Are Dance Exams Important?

Exams don't just happen in academic schools, they're done in the arts too. But why are these exams so important?

An exam gives each student a goal to work to and let them achieve it. But what your child needs to do to get the goal is probably something they can't easily learn from the four corners of their academic school.


Dancers need a great amount of discipline not only to learn their dance theory, but working hard in class for them to reach the technical requirement of each grade level.


Achieving one's goal always heightens self-esteem, especially if this is done in a classroom environment, this definitely increases each dancers respect amongst each other and learning what teamwork is all about.


As they progress to higher levels, the students will achieve not just certificates but possible memberships to one of the most recognised dance organisations in the world.

Exams are simply important because they would provide the development of strong technique, artistry and most importantly instill strong moral character, and value for excellence
