GRADE EXAMS

EXAMINER : MICHAEL MEEHAN 

On Friday Aug.14, 2020 we will be offering grade exams for grades 1-6 at the host hotel Marriott Baie D'Urfe.

The purpose of the grade examinations is to provide a structured framework within which dancers can work towards an achievable goal and to provide a strong foundation in Irish dance. Grade examinations are unlike competitions in that each candidate is individually examined and receives a detailed written assessment of their performance and knowledge of the grade being attempted. The scheme consists of an optional preliminary grade, followed by 12 grades with each one becoming increasingly more demanding on the candidates' skill, knowledge and ability. All 12 grade examinations must be completed to be eligible to apply for the TCRG examination as of January 1st, 2018.
