At Stewart Dance Studios, we teach structured syllabus classes by the New Zealand Association of Modern Dance (NZAMD) with exams held each year in September. While all students are encouraged to sit exams, they are optional.
In preparation for exams, we also hold a Medal Test weekend in August.
Our 2020 exam dates are from Saturday, 19 September to Saturday, 26 September.
Extra exam classes
Due to limited time, following Level 3 lockdown, we have added extra classes in lieu of set dress rehearsals this year.
The examiner can run up to 30 minutes ahead of schedule. Please ensure you are at the studio ready for your exam at least 1 hour prior to your time. All exams take place at the studio, in studio 2.
Normal classes during exam week
During exam week, classes are moved and re-timed in an effort to allow for one last lesson before each exam.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and our exam schedule, we will not be able to hold our usual Saturday classes on both 19 and 26 September. Non-exam classes, such as open or beginner classes, will also not take place during exam week.
If you are not sitting the exam for your class, you are not required to attend class this coming week
