Student Honors

The Student Honors Program provides a method that members of the Chicago National Association of Dance Masters can utilize to recognize the accomplishments of their students. The Program is open only to students of CNADM members. It establishes a set criteria of knowledge and ability for five different color levels in the three subjects of ballet, tap and jazz.

When students demonstrate their knowledge in a specific subject through written, oral and demonstrative testing, they will receive a pin and become eligible to test at the next level. Teachers can use this Program to establish benchmarks for teaching students, as well as provide an in-studio program to honor their students’ growth in dance.

Student Honors testing is conducted during both the summer and fall dance workshops for Student Session and Ballet Forum students.

Student Honors will be offered onsite at the 2021 Summer Workshop.  Testing will be held on Saturday and Sunday mornings. CNADM-StudentHonorsRegForm-2021
