Ballet Brilliant…

Massive congratulations to all the students who did their Ballet exams recently. Every one of them passed…. with a merit or distinction!  They’ve all worked so hard, and the excellent results were very much deserved.

Well done to all of you… and to the Teachers and parents as well of course.

Grade 1 Ballet

Congratulations to Grade 1 Ballet, who took their exam at the weekend. As ever, they worked extremely hard and gave their best. We’ll take a break until after Christmas now though, so no Grade 1 Ballet on Wednesdays for a few weeks.  Have a well-deserved rest girls!

Classes & Exam Update

With exams this weekend, there will be a few changes to the timetable from next week.

  • Monday night becomes Grade 1
  • Tuesday night becomes Grade 3
  • Wednesday night is now Grade 2
  • Primary Ballet from 9am Saturday

Most children simply carry on coming at the usual time – we’re just changing what they are now working towards (ie, as I write this – on Wednesday – Grade 1 is going on…. from next week the same children will be here, but working on Grade 2 syllabus!)

You can view the full Class Timetable here

Do yourselves proud at the weekend. We know you’re all brilliant – shine like stars so the examiner see that too… and SMILE 🙂

No exam practice this Friday, but we’ll see you Saturday and Sunday.

Dance Exams Updates!!

LETTER FROM PENNI

“Dear All

DANCE EXAMS

I am in the process of booking the dates for the examinations in the Autumn term. The Modern and Tap exams will take place at Mushroom on either: Sun 6th or Sun 13th October these are the dates I have requested, but we have to wait for HQ to confirm which date we can have.

The Ballet exams will take place in London at the Imperial Society HQ. As we don’t have enough entries to have an examiner come to us and we are at the Societies mercy as far as dates are concerned. The available dates are:
3rd,9th,10th,16th,17th,23rd, & 24th November

Please could you let me know if any of these dates are impossible for you.
Exams cost between £30 and £40 and I will issue you with all the necessary information when dates are set. If you are buying new kit check with me first regarding regulation leotards to save you paying out twice.

From September 1st Primary children will no longer be required to come on a Saturday morning but will have a separate class on a Saturday afternoon, time TBA along with their Monday evening class.

Grade 1’s will have an extra Modern and Tap class after Ballet on Saturdays along with their Wednesday class.

Grade 2’s will also need another class tba.

I hope that all makes sense!

Please complete this Exam Form asap.

Many thanks
Penni”
