There has been lots and lots of learning in Term 1! The first half of each year is dedicated to syllabus work in preparation for our upcoming Southern Federation of Dance Exams.
Exams give students the opportunity to perform in front of a qualified examiner and receive outside feedback. Students are introduced to exams in Level 1 where their teacher is allowed to enter the exam room with them.
Best of luck to all of our exam candidates, keep up the hard work!

‘The Level 3 (first years) started learning body rolls today so I taught them a bit about the spine to help them understand. It’s so important for dancers to understand how their muscles and bones work while they dance!’
Throughout May our dancers participated in the annual Southern Federation of Dance Masterclasses. Masterclasses are open to our exam students and allow both teachers and students the chance to check that the syllabus work is correct and provides brilliant feedback from examiners about the progress of exam work.
Congratulations to all of our dancers who participated and best of luck for your upcoming exams! Thank you for being so polite and for wearing your uniform beautifully.
