Anyone who wishes to can enter an exam, the cost of the exam depends upon which grade is being taken. All medal grades must be taken in strict order.
Your teacher will apply to the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) for the date of the Medal Test session. Then once the pupil's application is made, your teacher will forward the pupil's details to the IDTA who will then arrange for an external examiner to be sent.
Before the Medal Test, each pupil will be given the appropriate examination reports.
When it is their turn to dance, pupil's should take the exam report and give it to the examiner for marking. The pupil will then dance. Pupil's taking Ballroom, Latin, Old Time or Modern Sequence will dance with either their partner or their teacher, pupil's taking freestyle exams will dance solo or in small groups. When all of their dances are done, pupil's may leave. Each pupil will only be on the floor for approximately five minutes for each examination.
Pupil's will be advised of the results of their examination at their next class, the medals and certificates will be presented at the Medal Presentation Dance, approximately a month later.
