Performance Arts Awards (PAA) are group graded examinations in musical theatre, dance, and acting, ranging from absolute beginner (Premiere) to advanced (Grade 8):
- Musical Theatre
- Dance - Street Dance and Jazz Dance
- Acting - Acting and Screen Acting
Each syllabus provides a framework for the progressive development of a wide range of performing arts 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.
Rockschool Professional Diplomas are also open to PAA specialties and can be taken in three streams - performance, teaching, and creative enterprise.
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. Our national AMEB PAA website includes free syllabuses, plenty more information, and feature example videos and loads more.
