Here at Sutton School of Dance Classes Northwich we hold 3 Exam Sessions per year. With age and ability deciding how many exams are taken per year, our pupils have a manageable progression to their Dance training. However, with the NATD Trophy Exam, even our tiniest dancers get to earn themselves an engraved Trophy with their name on it, marked and moderated by an external professional examiner. With this in mind, we hold an annual Showcase, where our pupils perform their Exam Dances from the past year for all their family and friends. Not only do our pupils love showing their loved ones what they’ve been up to and how much they’ve improved, we’ve have a great response from the families. They all really appreciate being able to see what it is we are actually working towards in class, along with witnessing their child’s happiness and development and feeling reassured their money has been well spent. Because we pull together as a whole school, pupils and parents alike get to enjoy seeing our most advanced students wow; showing where our younger students are aspiring to, right down to our tiniest dancers enjoying every second of being a star. Furthering this we all enjoy a buffet together with everyone’s favourite party food where everyone gets to mingle and catch up. This is followed by our Awards Ceremony where we present 13 Annual Trophies incorporating of Junior and Senior Students in all 3 disciplines. There are Trophies for the best mark in an Exam which is decided externally by Examiners, along with improvement awards chosen by us. We conclud the Showcase with an inclusive disco for all, with fun party games and dances. To find out more about our Awards Ceremony please visit NATD Dance Exams.
