IDR are above all else an inclusive reward scheme, designed for everyone. Whilst we have a criteria to follow we reward dance students not just for dance quality and technique but for their effort, manners, discipline and attendance. That said to develop dancers technique and allow them to improve and learn then certain criteria has to be followed.
IDR believe there should be something for everyone; those talented, technically proficient dancers
need the ability to be pushed and moved forward, and we want to widen our examination route for our pupils at Zapphire.
If a criteria can not be met due to a limitation, Teachers should substitute for an alternative or adapt it to
work within the students capabilities.
Teachers know their students best; what they are capable of and how best to show their
greatest qualities. If a criteria can not be met due to a limitation, Teachers should substitute for an alternative or
adapt it to work within the students capabilities.
In all our levels we have a section for correct uniform. IDR teachers must allow adjustments to this to be
accommodating on the grounds of religion.
IDR Studio Exams and Reward Assessments also helps to keep costs low for our parents.
Within certain dance styles often male and females have differing steps or postures. IDR students may
take part and perform the style of dance in accordance with the gender they identify.
Shy or Lacking in Confidence
IDR are a perfect way to introduce the notion of an assessment process to the less
confident of students.
