NYSTCE Dance Practice Test (164)

When it comes to teachers’ education, one of the last subjects most would expect to have to undergo rigorous training for would be Dance. However, as an aspiring Dance educator, you have likely experienced dance classes from both sides and know how intricate the subject is. There is a lot to teaching your students the proper techniques. Because dance in itself is so physically challenging, you want to be especially sure to engage your students in the right way to help them comprehend the concepts and learn to execute them securely.

In the state of New York, all incoming teachers will have to earn a passing score on the NYSTCE (New York State Teacher Certification Examinations) prior to launching their careers.

In your case, this would be the Dance exam.

The NYSTCE Dance test spans about three hours and 15 minutes total, and divides into two seconds. One requires a short essay answer (otherwise known as “constructed-response”), while the other is multiple choice (“selected-response”).

There will be 91 questions in all on the test. Each test section (and its corresponding questions) adhere to one of the following topics.

The test’s single constructed-response question addresses Responding to and Analyzing Dance.

The selected-response questions deal with:

  • Dance and Culture
  • Dance Elements and Skills
  • Anatomy, Health, and Dance in Everyday Life
  • Creating and Performing Dance
