Evolve offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments which is designed to motivate and encourage students of all ages and abilities, from beginners to those on the threshold of a career in dance.
Our school runs examinations through three different examination bodies:
Royal Academy of Dance (RAD)
The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD)
The New Zealand Association of Modern Dance (NZAMD)
Examinations allow our pupils to develop musicality and artistry, reward their hard work and set goals to which they can aspire. Whether you want to take on a new challenge, build confidence, keep fit, move to music, measure progress, improve your technique, or perform, then our examinations are for you!
Although exams are not compulsory we strongly encourage them to keep our pupils focused on moving forward and growing as dancers.
Classes are structured to cover all examination work and any performance work that might be coming up and need preparation.
In preparation for examinations students are given 5 day intensive coaching during the school holiday period and mock examinations prior to exam time every year.
Our coaching week and mock examinations are compulsory for any student wanting to enter examinations. They enable us to polish and fine tune the work in order for our pupils to reach their full dancing potential.
Evolve has recently had their 2015 NZAMD examinations and we are very proud to say that all of our pupils achieved marks from 80% upwards. This shows how well prepared our pupils were for their exam and with great marks for attitude all round they must have had fun!
