Congratulations to our ballet students who sat their Australian Conservatoire of Ballet Exams in Term 2 with examiner Valmai Roberts. Of the six candidates entered two of our students received Distinction with marks between 90 – 100%.
Exams are a great tool of motivation for students giving them a consistent goal to work towards. If your child is interested in sitting a ballet exam in 2019 students are required to take 2 ballet classes a week with our classical extension class also recommended.
