MORE than 70 Bod­ies in Mo­tion stu­dents sat their dance ex­am­i­na­tions in Moss­man, with 18 named hon­ours stu­dents af­ter im­press­ing ex­am­in­ers with their moves. Bod­ies in Mo­tion of­fer exam classes in jazz, ballet, tap and hip hop.

The exam process teaches stu­dents valu­able lessons in­clud­ing dis­ci­pline, goal set­ting, in­de­pen­dence and eti­quette.

Three ex­am­in­ers from Melbourne and Bris­bane vis­ited the school in Moss­man and were im­pressed with the high stan­dard of danc­ing from th­ese ded­i­cated stu­dents.
