The Medal Test is an opportunity to have your dancing progress evaluated and critiqued by an independent source other than your teacher. This process assures those high-quality standards are maintained among EDC affiliate dance centers and that you are being taught in accordance with a worldwide standard of dancing.
Working towards a medal test is fun and gives your lessons a sharp focus, as you learn details about dancing that you might otherwise overlook. The medal test provides a tangible goal in time and will motivate both the teacher and the student. It is a milestone in the student’s learning process which marks the completion of one level, opening the door to the next dance challenge.
Working towards a medal test affords many of the same benefits enjoyed by competing amateur dancers but without the stress of competition and public display.
Students who take medal tests learn faster and dance better than those who don’t. Teachers who prepare students for medal tests teach more thoroughly and have the satisfaction of producing a better dancer.
Aside from boosting the dancers’ own morale and self-esteem, the purpose and aim of Medal Test Assessments are:
To help teachers provide structured and progressive learning for pupils
To encourage young people to maintain and develop their interest in European quality of dance equally
To improve their standard of dance
