Rules and Reguations
Exams/Medals and Shows
Grade exams can be taken in ballet, tap and drama. Both ballet and tap have 8 junior grades and drama has 5. A great progression in technique and style is learnt through the grades. Results are given 3 weeks after the exam date.
Medals have 4 standards and a final trophy; there are 3 medals in each standard. They can be taken in any subject. Parents can watch the medals and results are given on the day. Medals are invaluable in boosting the confidence of the participating pupils, and help in developing stage presence and awareness. In ballet and tap they dance a solo, so for the first few times they do a group dance so they get use to dancing in front of the audience. In the group dance they get the same mark. In disco however it works slightly different. They get their own individual mark but a group of pupils [possibly 5 or 6] dance at the same time not as a solo. We do one exam session and one medal session a year. Payment is due no later than 5 weeks before.
There is a yearly show, which is held at a local theatre, in February. All pupils are welcome to take part.
Twice a year the Improvers trophy is awarded to the pupil who has improved the most over the previous 6 months. This will be awarded at the Summer Party and at the Show.
All dancewear will need to be paid for when the order is placed. Dancewear can be ordered on line.
