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.
