Examinations at Phoenix

A huge well done to all the dancers who took their IDTA STREET DANCE EXAMINATION last Sunday 8th May 2016.
You all danced beautifully.
This year has been one of the best overall scores to date.
We saw plenty of smiles, charisma and confidence from every single one of you. We were very proud.

Please see results below - Running order from the day.

90% and over Honours (H)
80% and over Highly Commended (HC)
70% and over Commended ( C)

With every single dancer receiving an Honours (TOP MARK ) or a Highly Commended, we thought it might be nice to share the results whilst we wait for the Medals and Certificates.
Thank you for all your hard so far this year, and keeping the standard of the School so high. The Examiner was really impressed with the level of talent and confidence you showed on the day. Well done!

Please note - Rosettes aren´t given individual scores or report forms. They did all pass though and will receive their Rosette plaque and Certificate.

Many thanks for now - Vic and Amy xxx

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.

Dancers need to be 3 years and upwards to take an examination.
You will be required to perform your set dances (alone or in a small group) to an external examiner.
You will dance in front of the rest of your group (bronze,silver,gold etc)
You will be assigned a number which must be attached SECURELY to your costume so that the examiner can easily identify you.
Family and friends are invited to watch on the day to show support and encouragement.
A written comment sheet, along with a medal statuette trophy etc , and a certificate stating the grade awarded to you, will be handed out at a later date.
Timings - all timings will be announced in due course.

You are required to wear a STRIKING DANCE OUTFIT and full make up.
No casual/rehearsal clothes must be worn, and costumes need to be SHOW STANDARD.
Costumes must be bold, striking, colourful, and dynamic.
