Dance Accreditation Testing

The BNR Dance Company offers dance accreditation opportunities for students ages 10 and up. 

Since we are a performance company, accreditation allows dancers to be able to list and quantify their achievements for future college applications, resumes, and the like. 

Dancers are not required to participate in this program, and there are no testing fees.

Testing is held four times per year during regular scheduled classes: 

    November, February, May, August

Dancers have three categories in which to be tested:

                                                Compulsory, Freestyle, and Choreography

In each category there are three levels to achieve: 

                                                               Bronze,  Silver,  Gold

                       Bronze - 6 elements      Silver - 12 elements       Gold - 18 elements 

Dancers must test Compulsory Elements first for each level. 

           i.e. A dancer at the Bronze level in Compulsory cannot test beyond bronze in the other                         categories until they do so in the Compulsory category first.
