Introduction to IDTA Medal Test

 

We are now working towards medal tests. The date is booked for Sunday 13th March 2022. For those who are new to the academy or have not done a medal test let me explain what it is…..

An IDTA Street Dance Exam is where a professional examiner from the International Dance Teaching Association (a very highly established dance examination board) comes into the studio and examines the children.

The children perform a team dance all together that they have learnt in class and two solo dances for Bronze, three for silver and four for Gold and Gold Plus. Just to put dancer’s minds at ease, the solos are examined in groups of four, so dancers are not completely on their own.

 

If your child has any special needs or disabilities that need to be made known to the examiner, please let me know beforehand. Please note if you wish to you can apply for special circumstances but this will need to be backed up by medical certificates/proof.

If the children are successful, they will receive a medal and certificate for each award; team and solo.

 

They will receive their awards at a medal ceremony in front of fellow dancers and parents and friends. IDTA medal tests are a great way to check your progress, build confidence, it looks great in portfolios and CVs. If you are serious about street dance, you can even work your way up to a teacher’s qualification.

Awards

If you would like to do the medal tests this year please bring payment in.(CASH ONLY) Please bring this in a clearly marked envelope with your name, amount and please state which test you would like to do and which level you are on
