Young dancers assessed
Horsham School of Dance ballet students have performed strongly during Australian Teachers of Dancing exams.
Visiting examiner Cheryl Witchell said all students were well prepared and a pleasure to examine.
The examination provided an opportunity to introduce students to the examination procedure ‘in a relaxed and familiar environment’.
All the students received a medal and a written report with positive and technical comments to help with ongoing training.
Thirty-three students from beginner through to senior level took part. All test one, two and three students passed successfully.
In higher levels, four students achieved honours plus and another four students achieved highly commended plus.
Principal Karen Booker said children who took part in exams gained confidence and learned important life skills and it gave them goal to work towards.
Ultimately, the higher levels can lead to examinations for teaching diplomas.
