Grade Examinations
Grade Examinations can be taken from age 5 in groups of up to 3 or 4 pupils depending on the level of the exam. The pupils demonstrate set exercises and dances they have learnt in classes.

Pupils will only be entered for their grade examination once they have mastered the necessary technique.
