At Stewart Dance Studios, we teach structured syllabus classes by the New Zealand Association of Modern Dance (NZAMD) with exams held each year, usually at the end of term three. While all students are encouraged to sit exams, they are optional.

In preparation for exams, we also hold a Medal Test weekend earlier in the year.

2021 Exams

If you have any questions...

If you are not sure if your dancer is ready to participate in their exam, please see your class teacher. Exams are not compulsory and they may not be something you are interested in doing, and that is totally fine.

NZAMD has also provided this helpful document explaining what exams are all about.

Exam dates

Our 2021 exams have been rescheduled to run from Tuesday, 14 December until Wednesday, 22 December.


Extra exam classes

We will be holding extra exam classes over the weekends of 3-5 December and 10-12 December. These will be important for preparation as dancers will go over the correct exam procedures, along with what to expect on the day. A separate timetable will be given for these rehearsals soon. Click here to view the timetable for these classes.

Exam timetable

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.

A timetable will be made available once this has been sent to and approved by NZAMD.

Classes during exam week

Our usual timetabled classes will finish term 4 on Saturday, 11 December. Classes for exam students will be scheduled so that you are able to have one last class before you sit your exam - this will usually be one to two days prior to your exam.
