All Applause Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Tap and Lyrical dancers (including dancers not sitting exams), are given the opportunity to perform their exam dances each year on stage at our performance day.
We invite an industry professional to watch and give constructive critiques for each dancer in an easy to understand score card. Plus all dancers receive an award ribbon and go in the draw for some amazing spot prizes for participating! This is a fun day for all, even the parent get up on stage for a dance battle against their kids!
