2023 Medal Test Results

ELDC Medal Tests

Emma Louise Dance Club offers children the opportunity to take medal tests. Medal tests are not compulsory. Children will only be entered for a medal test if they have reached the required standard. Medal tests give children the opportunity to be accessed and graded by Emma Louise Dance Cub teachers. Children taking a medal test will be required to attend an examination day. Medal tests consist of a warm up, dance routine (2 contrasting dances for Senior Bronze and above), and curtsey or bow. Children are assessed on presentation, technique and musicality. Children will receive a report card and if successful a certificate and medal or award.

Medal tests require children to work extremely hard in class and undertake extra practice at home to prepare for the exam.
