The Florida Dance Performance Assessment is open to NDEO members in any public, private or studio dance school. Students should be 6 th-12th graders, with the intent of receiving authentic assessment in Technical Proficiency (Etudes learned and rehearsed ahead of time), Movement Acquisition (movement given and repeated on demand, on site) and Ensemble Performance (3-12 minute piece rehearsed ahead of time, no props/costumes; choreography can be student, guest or faculty produced). Teachers may opt to have their school adjudicated at either the proficient (beginner), accomplished (intermediate) or advanced level based on their student’s average hours of technical dance training. Schools may bring 5-20 students for FDPA Assessment. FDPA will take place on Sat, Feb 2 between 8am-5pm. Schools will be notified of start times once school registration is complete, as each school rotates on their own.
School Fee is $185 and is due Oct 31, 2018 with the FDPA School Registration - Form A. SEE LINK TO FORM A BELOW.
Once the FDPA Form A and School Fee are received, your school will receive the Etudes and music via link to the lead teacher’s email.
