All students are presented with the opportunity to sit examinations in Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Contemporary.

Examinations are not compulsory for students, but all are encouraged to sit. We believe that it is important for dancers to have the opportunity to place their growth and development of technique on a measurable (and moderated) scale, to aid goal setting and steady improvement.

New work for each grade level is learned in Terms 1 and 2 of each year, with examinations held in Term 3.

Those who sit are graded by an examiner, and awarded certificates with a relevant pass grade. These are something of a ╩╗qualification╩╝, and receiving them can be considered a great achievement 

The following syllabi are studied at KJ Studios:

Classical Ballet
Australian Teachers of Dance. (ATOD)

American Jazz
New Zealand Association of Modern Dance (NZAMD) 

Contemporary
