We offer every student the opportunity to participate in assessments in either the Royal Academy of Dance [RAD] Asia Pacific Dance Association [APDA] or New Zealand Association of Modern Dance [NZAMD]. From Exams to Ribbons there is something for everyone and there is an expectation at DanceWorks that students do at least one form of assessment.

Assessment Types


Students are able to take examinations in Ballet, Contemporary, Highland, Jazz & Tap. Exams are for serious students willing to practice and work hard to achieve the standard required to pass international exams. These are through The Royal Academy of Dance [RAD] and Asia Pacific Dance Association [APDA].

Solo Performance

This is offered by the RAD and only available to Ballet students, this can be done by arrangement.
