Dance Department Exam Week


Hello Dance Families,

Exam week is scheduled for next week Tuesday Nov. 4th through Sunday Nov. 9th during your child's normal class time.  Plan to attend class during these dates.  Exam week is a time for the teachers to assess your child's skill level which will aid us in determining promotions.

We have a new exam grading process this time around.  Skills will be graded with a minus, check or plus sign.  (Minus = Developing, Check = Average and Plus = Exceeds).  Teachers will grade skills immediately and the report card will be sent home with your child so please look for a slip of paper after their dance classes during exam week.

You will be notified of any promotions sometime mid-end of November.  If you are contacted by the teacher or director for promotions, please respond to them as soon as possible and let them know which class you would like to register for since we offer certain levels on different days of the week.

Thank you,
PDD Dance Department
