Streetfunk has been running for more than 15 years and we deeply care about the children we teach and the dance culture we promote. We recognise that children work well with praise and even better with rewards and something tangible that they can work hard to achieve.
In the past, the children’s progression has been determine by age and at times not taking into account, how much more a child could be pushed and challenged to achieve more. With this in mind, we would like to introduce our grading system which we feel will bring a lot of excitement, motivation and hunger to all our students. This grading system was created go to alongside our syllabus and lesson plans to help students, parents and the Streetfunk community celebrate our students’ hard work, commitment and talent.
Each of our five levels - Minis, Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced and Pro - has a colour to quickly identify it:
Minis - Yellow
Beginners - Red
Intermediate - Green
Advanced - Blue
Pro - Purple
Each level has a number of criteria that the students must achieve before they are ready to move to the next level up. Each of these criteria now has a “badge” attached to it, depicting and describing what it is for. For example, the Minis have 9 criteria they have to fulfil before they are ready to move to Beginners.
All grading will be certified by your Streetfunk teacher(s) and pre-approved by
the Institute for Contemporary Theatre.
