Most of our exams will be held in house this year to minimise costs for our families. 

These exams will be in weekends in August and September- you have been emailed your exam time(s).

Our NZAMD Major Grade students will still be doing external NZAMD exams and these dates will be around October 9th-11th. Updates will come via email if you are a major grade student.

If you have any clashes with the exam dates please contact the office ASAP on thedancestudio@xtra.co.nz and we shall do our best to accomodate these.
