Exams

PRACTICAL EXAM:

  • Don't forget to warm up, stretch, drink lots of water! Take into account everything you've read on what creates a good dance!
  • If you go wrong in your dance DON'T STOP its the worse thing you can do, if you can, improvise the section you've messed up, if its gone horribly wrong ask to start again. Take a few minutes to calm yourself down - don't rush straight into it.

WRITTEN EXAM:

  • Sorry to state the obvious but know when your exam is! - Prepare yourself and start revising a few weeks before
