The ABT Student Examinations are a graded evaluation system that enables students to receive personalized, constructive feedback on their skills. Not only are the Student Examinations a useful tool for dance educators, but they provide feedback for participating students regarding their technique and artistry.
ABT Student Examinations benefit students by serving as a skill assessment to document students’ progress, build their confidence, and improve their training. Each participating student receives an individual rubric outlining their proficiency both technically and artistically with comments from the Examiner. Students who successfully pass the exam will also receive an official certificate listing the level of the examination class they took along with their level of distinction. The four levels of distinction are Pass, Pass with Merit, Pass with Honors, and Pass with High Honors.
Every year our students have the opportunity to take the ABT Student Examination. We are honored to be able to prepare our students with this opportunity to grow as dancers.
