Performance Arts Awards

Performance Arts Awards (PAA) are group graded examinations in musical theatre, jazz dance and street dance ranging from absolute beginner (Premiere) to advanced (Grade 8).

The syllabuses are free to download and our Examiners will visit your school or studio to assess all your students together. We don't even charge teacher registration fees - you only pay for your exams.

This globally recognised syllabus is delivered by AMEB through our partnership with RSL Awards (Rockschool). Based in the UK, the Rockschool brand specialises in the contemporary arts and focusses on equpping young people with the skills they need to succeed in the industry. These qualifications are recognised globally with tens of thousands of exams conducted in the UK and over 40 countries around the world.

The syllabus provides a framework for the progressive development of a wide range of dance styles and technical skills, over a series of grades from beginner to expert level.

PAA exams are specifically designed to measure, assess and reward progress whilst encouraging innovation and creativity.

AMEB Tas provides PAA exams but our national AMEB PAA website includes free downloadable syllabuses, plenty more information, and feature example videos and loads more.

Head to our dedicated AMEB PAA website to find out more and download the syllabuses.

Please note that reports and certificates will take a little longer to get to you compared with other AMEB timelines. This is due to the moderation process (via the UK) to adhere with the international qualification requirements of these awards.
