Medal Classes and Medals

Completing a medal is the fastest and easiest way to gain the confidence you need to "get up" and "get going" at any social event. Medallists are taught the finer points of Ballroom Dancing.


Medals are the ultimate way to gage your accomplishments as you travel through your dancing journey. A real stepping stone to show all that, you have done it!!

Medals can be challenging, they can be fun, but above all they will give you a true representation of your dancing level as you do more and more of them. You don't have to be the best or match anyone else’s expectations; it is all about what you do.

We offer medals in four styles: Modern Ballroom, Latin American,New Vogue and Classical Sequence. We hold group classes for medallists doing their bronze and silver levels and encourage gold medallists and above to do their medals by private tuition.

Not all of use want to be the next big thing in dancing so at Dancewell Studios we offer two levels of examination, Recreational (for the Social Dancer) and Technical (For those wanting an in depth and very technical exam).


At Dancewell Studios we believe that a different point of view is the most important thing to improving your dancing so, throughout the year we invite some of New Zealand leading professional Coaches and Amateur Competitive dancers to examine your performance and give you their tips and opinion on how you are doing and most importantly,where to go next.
