The Performance consists of a group dance routine which can include any style or variation of street dance. Teachers have creative control over the concept, content and choreography
of the group performance but must adhere to the minimum and maximum durations specified per grade (including the music track/s selected).

Teachers can refer to the Technical Moves listed at each grade for guidance regarding the level of difficulty expected for the Performance choreography at each grade.

A maximum of six candidates can be assessed at any one time. If there are more than six, the examiner will split candidates into two groups. Examiners may ask candidates to repeat sections of the performance if clarification is needed.

The school’s uniform is sufficient, however, costumes and props are permitted.

An audience is permitted.

Teachers and candidates are encouraged to closely consider the Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria for the specific qualification level they are entering.


Guide to choosing music for the performance

The selection of music is the teacher’s choice and should allow the candidates the best opportunity to respond to phrasing, dynamics and atmosphere. The style and the mood of the music should allow for as much expression as possible, creating a performance that fulfils requirements for technique, musicality and communication.
