EXAMS & PERFORMANCE

End of Year Examinations

While End of Year Examinations are NOT compulsory for our students, it is a great way for the dancers to receive recognition for all of their hard work throughout the year.

Please note: There is a HIGH possibility of these examinations being scheduled for a time that is not always convenient, ie; long weekends, week days, during school time, etc. This unfortunately is beyond our control, it is determined by the examination organization that we are interacting with at the time. Please condsider this when deciding to put your child’s name forward for an examination.

Annual Performance Opportunities

Each year the school provides every student with various performance opportunities.
The annual productions are held mid- year for all disciplines within the school. Productions are open to all enrolled students but are not compulsory. The Selwyn School of Dance stages its productions to provide students with the opportunity to experience the rewards and demands of live performance. The staging of its productions also provides families and friends of dancers, and the wider community, with an opportunity to attend a live performance.

Other community performances are also made available to students as they arise. A close relationship with the Education department of the Royal New Zealand Ballet also enables Selwyn School of Dance students to participate in seasonal Creative Dance and Technique Workshops and Company Master classes as they are available.

Competition Invitation

The Selwyn School of Dance extends an invitation to eligable dancers to represent our school at Regional Dance Competitions.
As opportunities like this arrive, your dancer may be invited to represent the Selwyn School of Dance in some way, please carefully consider the following: There is a HIGH probably that the event will occur during the week and over a school holiday period. Competition class timetables are not confirmed until the organization has confirmation of dance entries. Depending on which classes and how many, your dancer is entered into, may mean that they are required to dance on more than one day during the competition period.


Dancers would be required to provide their own costumes to perform in.
Competition classes are provided through private tuition at an additional cost.
