Wow dancers! We have had some fabulous exam results in 2018! Studio D humbly boasts a 100% pass rate for our exams once again!
So proud of dancers who set and achieved their goals, by working diligently in class, taking up all opportunities for extra classes, participating fully in their practise exams and of course practising at home!
Congratulations dancers, teachers and parents on these fabulous results. Dancers, we hope you are inspired to continue working hard for the rest of the year. It was beautiful to watch how excited you were for your friends’ results and how positively you congratulated each other.
Sometimes exams can be intimidated and results might not be what we expected, but the support from fellow dancers makes it better. If you didn’t get the result you hoped for, make sure you read through the feedback, seek advice from your teachers, and come into class determined grow and learn more. Remember results are one person’s opinion based on one day of dance, and the SFD reports are designed to help all dancers improve.
Look our for our next post about our Honours with Distinction Exam results! We have had some gorgeous reactions from dancers, that we can’t wait to share!
Today marks the end of our exam season! Congratulations to all dancers, teachers and parents. We are extremely proud of our exam candidates, and know you all worked very hard with your teachers in order to demonstrate your best dancing.
Thank you to our parents who provided such yummy food for our examiners to enjoy during the long exam days.
Exam results are eagerly anticipated and have already started arriving! Presentation dates for results will be emailed out to families, parents are welcome to join the class to watch the presentation of results.We are excited to announce that we have already received a number of Honours with Distinction results! Honours with Distinction is the highest mark a dancer can receive for their Southern Federation of Dance Exams! Can’t wait to see the reactions of these hardworking, talented students.
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.
