Summer ballet exam results 2019

We had only 31 ballet exam candidates in the summer session from Grade 1 to Grade 8...

The exams were held only a few days after our June dance display run which made the experience a challenge for both the students and their teachers! The students put in a lot of personal practise and it shows in their excellent results. We have many thanks to Brightons Parish Church for hosting our exams at the last minute when our original venue was double booked.

Excellent exam results

Our ballet results are excellent with overall the 31 candidates gaining 1 Pass, 9 Merit and 21 Distinctions! Special congratulations to the students who were awarded high scores of over 80% for their examinations, with particularly high scores being achieved for the Solo Performance Awards. The SPA is a perfromance orientated exam where the dancers are marked on 3 solos.

  • Grade 4: April Beattie 80%; Hannah Firth 81%; Abbie Garmany 92%; Robyn Smillie 83%; Gracie Stevens 80%
