For Parents

The ADV assessments program is different!

ADV offers a unique assessment program for jazz, tap, contemporary and classical. It is designed to create a safe environment for students to perform at their best.  Students have a choice between receiving a report with or without a graded mark. The system is built on meeting specific learning outcomes and performance criteria. It builds students' self esteem and confidence when they know they are assessed throughout the year.  All curriculum in all levels integrate academic worksheets for a holistic approach to dance education giving  "life skills." 

ADV's syllabus is Australian-owned which means all funds remain in Australia. The program fosters and nurtures children's development as whole persons, not merely a dancing body. The curriculum covers a wide range of dance subjects including not only technique but also anatomy, nutrition, history, performance skills, creative dance, mime and improvisation, music appreciation and industry knowledge. Students become articulate and skilled pre-professionals.

The syllabus is further endorsed by ADi, a registered training organistaion that delivers vocational qualifications in dance training and dance teaching. This means that ADV's grades count towards professional qualifications and give credit points in the Higher School Certificate in most states.
