Every year, dancers at Phoenix and Pop Fusion have the opportunity to take their street dance examination with the IDTA.
They are optional. However, they are a great way of gaining performance experience and confidence. It is an opportunity for dancers to perform either on their own, or in a small group, to show their individual skills.
The International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) is one of the largest examination boards, covering the full spectrum of dance examinations on a global scale, with over 7000 members in 55 countries.
