Each year we hold our Medal Test weekend at Hawkins Theatre in Papakura, giving all students from Pre-Schoolers to Seniors, the opportunity to gain valuable stage experience and encouragement.
Medal Test also helps dancers build confidence in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and gives our junior students the opportunity to watch senior dancers, competition pupils and teachers perform on stage.
All exam students are able to practice their exam dance in preparation for sitting their exam in September and even if you're not sitting an exam, we offer a range of self-choreography classes.
All dancers who take part will receive something and we also have many trophies for special awards.
