We have had the best day at our UK DANCE CLASS Championships Medal Tests with the lovely Miss Jenna and Miss Seddon! 45 students between the ages of 3 and 17 all learning short combinations in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical and commercial and having so much fun dancing together in front of parents and family members.
Gorgeous feedback, advice and support from Miss Seddon who worked hard to provide written reports for each child and an extremely hardworking teacher, Miss Jenna, providing fabulous choreography across all genres with such enthusiasm and rapport with the students. A great experience for all, beautifully ran and a proud principal once again here tonight, I have sooo many photos!!
Thank you to Thatto Heath Labour Club for the use of your venue, Georgia Blakemore for being my right hand woman and runner today and Margaret/Mum for taking lots of action photos for me throughout the day!
“Now I’m back in the land of the living I would just like to say a personal thank you to Cathi Conroy-Jones at UK DANCE CLASS Championships for our fantastic medal test day on Saturday.
I wasn’t sure what to expect as I’ve only ever seen videos of the live events which are such a high standard.
As a relatively new school it was our first time hosting such an event on a large scale.
Cathi was amazing at ensuring the day was tailored to the needs of our school. We had such a variety of dancer some with experience and some who only started dancing in September!
Eloiise Rose Massey did an amazing job of making the children feel calm and confident.
Every single student got a medal and certificate and a feedback report, which with Mrs Conroy’s experience really was an amazing bonus as they were both complimentary and constructive.
We then had the awards and commendations at the end of the day which was the cherry on top.
The kids absolutely loved it, still talking about it back in class this week and the parents have given fabulous feedback too!
We can’t wait to have you back next year 🖤
Thank you from us all at Zebra studios”Zebra studios
“UK DANCE CLASS Championships Medal Tests 💜
All of the students had such a wonderful experience yesterday. We love that the medal tests are an opportunity for children to be able to experience an “exam style setting”, receive individual personalised feedback, get a certificate AND a medal too.
The tests are run so that students as young as 2 years old are able to participate!
Well done to everyone who took part – you can see how happy everyone was, especially the 7 students who got “special commendation” and “most promising dancer” trophies!
We enjoyed them so much we’ve booked them again for October 2023! Can’t wait!”Izzy king, Kings Dance Academy
“Just wanted to say what a brilliant day we had with Cathi and Loren for our medal tests. It was a relaxed but perfectly organised day that was enjoyed and appreciated by all our pupils parents and staff. Everyone went away happy with beaming smiles. Special shout out to Loren, works so hard and is great with the kids. Thank you ladies, we loved it. x Gracedieu

“Our children had an amazing day with UKDCC medal tests. The Assessor Katie Glover was lovely with the kids and the format of learning the choreography on the day is great – no pressure on the teacher or the children before.
All of them received a certificate of attendance and medals for each genre, plus a short report. Highly recommended 😊”Hayley Halcrow, Principal NLDA Junior dept.
“We had our very first medal test session with UKDCC a few weeks ago and it was a fantastic day!!! All of the children aged between 2-12 years old thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are keen to do another in the future!
We will definitely book again and highly recommend UKDCC medal tests for all age groups – don’t be put off from entering your babies they will LOVE it!!!”Ashton McGowan, Principal
“UKDCC Medal Tests – a great event for a dance school. My students thoroughly enjoyed the day, and it is a good learning experience for them, too. Challenging choreography in all different styles. The reports, certificates and medals are really nice, and the end of the day presentation works really well. Highly recommend!”Emma Coombs, Principal
“We recently had a medal test day and I can’t recommend it enough!
No preparation needed so it’s a really lovely event to break up a busy show term or gruelling exam prep. We have only had positive feedback from our dancers and their grown ups.
The reports the children received were true reflections of the dancers they are which myself and my Co worker really appreciated.
If you’re thinking about it, do it!”Rebekah Brown, Principal
