Our Syllabus:


NZAMD (New Zealand Association of Modern Dance) was the first New Zealand based examination organisation, and is now one of the largest in the country.

It provides our studio with:


  • Fun & imaginative Pre School presentation programmes

  • Examination syllabi in five disciplines

  • Realistic examination fees

  • Syllabus & examination assistance through workshops

  • Teacher training programme and qualifications

  • Current and exciting exam work that is continuously updated

  • A vast range of styles even within each genre for maximum versatility

  • Incentives for senior students with the opportunity of a "Nomination"

NZAMD has been formed by experienced and highly knowledgeable teachers and dancers, with much care and thought of today’s requirements of a dancer.  We are proud and excited to introduce this syllabus to our students at I-Dance.


All syllabus work is taught with the intention that students will work towards sitting an exam.  We also offer awards at our annual prize giving where students may receive a trophy or prize. Engraving goes back as far as 1970’s on some of the trophies so following in the footsteps of older students and in some cases parents and relations that have gone before them is quite an awesome achievement! Older students often donate cups and trophies when they leave to celebrate excellence in our school.  All pupils receive their report & certificate.
