The Ceroc Medal Tests are your opportunity to have your dancing progress scaffolded and evaluated across three crucial stages of education. You will be critiqued by a pre-determined set of standards agreed between Ceroc and independent Dance and Performance Arts Curriculum Specialists.
Ceroc is a global Dance Club and these tests are taught and assessed in accordance with a world-wide standard of dancing. They are designed not only to enable you to learn faster but also to set targets for your own development based upon your current grading and desired level.
Medal tests represent a tangible goal that is both fun and personally rewarding. Whether you want to be a dance teacher, make dance your profession, compete or simply enjoy your own personal development, our medal tests are important milestones in your journey.
Medal tests are available to complete at the weekends in various locations across the country. You will need to book in advance to secure your place and there is a charge. The tests include written work and assessments and therefore please bring your reading glasses if you wear them and your favourite biro.

You can bring a partner with whom you feel comfortable and confident dancing, however it is not essential, and a partner can be provided for you.
Who will be assessing me?
You will be assessed by a qualified senior Ceroc Instructor who has been trained in the criteria for our unique Medal Tests. They will observe your progression throughout the entire Medal Test and give you your final mark based upon a culmination of the day. Some Ceroc Teachers may be available for private tuition prior to the Medal Test.
What should I wear for the Medal Test?
There is no set clothing required, however the examiner will need to be able to see your posture and legwork clearly, so please avoid anything too baggy.
What criteria will I be evaluated on?
The assessment will consider the following criteria in your Medal Test;
- Connection (Lead or Follow)
- Timing and Musicality
- Repertoire and Understanding of movements taught regularly in a Ceroc Class.
How do I get my results?
At the end of the assessment you will be rewarded your medal should you reach the required standard. No further feedback will be provided regardless of pass or fail.
Will I be able to retake if I fail?
You can take the assessment as many times as you wish.
