The assessment is a 20 minute practical split into two parts: * In part one you’ll be asked to demonstrate 6 pole moves which will be randomly selected by the assessors. You will need to perform the moves with correct technique and grace. The course manual has a check list of the points you’ll be marked on. * In part two you’ll be asked to teach three pole moves to a small group of students. You will be able to prepare in advance for this part of the assessment. Again, the manual has a full list of criteria.
