Class Performance Awards (CPA)

ADA aims to encourage every student to keep working towards reaching the highest standard possible for their ability. CPA provides an opportunity for all students within their studio to be a part of the ADA Examination Session.  Teachers will be able to tailor each group’s performance to showcase their student’s abilities and potential.  The exercises that may be presented will be selected by the Teacher, as per the list below.

CPA Requirements

  • Maximum of 4 students at a time demonstrating the syllabus work.  Each CPA group must demonstrate the same work.
  • Each dancer will receive a written report, ribbon and certificate with a Performance grading from the Examiner.
  • Results are graded as follows:  Outstanding, High Achievement, Commendable, Pass and Unsuccessful.
  • CPA Students are also eligible to participate in ADA Awards or Dance Championships at the same Grade/Stars level that they are currently completing.
  • A “buddy” can accompany any single entrant into the exam.  No fees will be charged for the buddy.
