New examiners are appointed as the need arises. Prospective examiners are invited by the Board to undergo a test on their knowledge and understanding of the syllabus, music and anatomy. The Membership Diploma is the required qualification. An examiner needs some rare qualities that are not always found in teachers, even if the candidate holds a Distinction Membership Diploma

We require our examiners to be able to assess fairly:

  1. Pupils of professional level.
  2. Serious dancers attending several classes a week.
  3. Pupils in outlying districts who have one lesson a week and dance for the love of it. Some use the syllabus for remedial assistance to improve physical problems.
