Event Details

It’s time for Winter Assessments 2019

Our Winter Assessments 2019 take place in all classes this week.  FVAD organizes Assessment Weeks twice each year: once in the Fall Term and once in the Winter Term.  Teachers formally assess students based on defined skill sets for each class.

Fraser Valley Academy of Dance has developed its own syllabus for each grade and dance style.  In ballet, while the syllabus incorporates the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, it expands greatly on that book-based training to include the more advanced techniques taught by former professional dancers at the Vaganova Academy and Royal Ballet Schools.  In tap and modern theatre dance, the syllabus of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is incorporated with more advanced techniques to provide challenging and flexible skill sets.

Report cards are emailed (or mailed if no email is on account) to all students by the start of the next term.

Our Winter Assessments identify any difficulties students may be having, alert parents to issues such as lack of knowledge resulting from absences, and also confirm selected students for more advanced training.

Following the assessments, students will be assigned their Pre-Approved classes for the next school year.  The list of possible classes for each student will then appear in their online account for easy selection for September.  Registration for September begins by April 15 for existing students, and May 1 for new students.
