Kew School Of Dance

2023 Examinations

How to prepare for Exams

Dance assessments are an important part of the teaching and learning programs at Kew School of Dance. Assessments are a natural extension of the work covered in class each week. Dance exams are part of the tradition of dance training and provide a goal for students to work towards. They help students maintain steady progress and provide valuable external feedback to both students and teachers.
