Please note that you must have at least 20 candidates to be eligible for a face-to-face examination.

The syllabus has been developed to follow the basic structure of your dance class. There are warm up exercises, followed by those for upper body, legs and feet, leading on to jumping and travelling steps, combinations and sequences, and then a prepared dance.
