The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hor­sham School of Dance prin­ci­pal Karen Booker has la­belled Sun­day’s an­nual stu­dent recital a roar­ing suc­cess.

Stu­dents, rang­ing in age from three years to adult, pre­sented bal­let, hip-hop, con­tem­po­rary and Ir­ish danc­ing rou­tines in Hor­sham Town Hall.

“The pre-school dance groups stole the show as usual with their fun ‘What’s Your Favourite An­i­mal’ rou­tine,” Ms Booker said.

“A group dance pre­sented by the com­bined Ir­ish danc­ing classes was an­other favourite with the au­di­ences.”

Ms Booker said all stu­dents looked amaz­ing and danced well.

“They dis­played a con­fi­dent stage pres­ence,” she said.

“As a school we were proud to share our danc­ing with fam­ily and friends.

“A huge thank you to ev­ery­one who helped on the day and along the way so our stu­dents could have this won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Ms Booker said the stu­dents would start pre­par­ing for a per­for­mance at next month’s Kan­na­ma­roo Fes­ti­val in Hor­sham.

Forty-four Hor­sham School of Dance stu­dents, in­clud­ing six boys, have also com­pleted Aus­tralian Teach­ers of Dance clas­si­cal bal­let ex­ams.

Ms Booker said re­sults were ex­cel­lent, with all stu­dents pass­ing.

“Test one, two and three level stu­dents all re­ceived highly skilled and com­pe­tent com­ments for their work, while the more se­nior stu­dents achieved graded lev­els of highly com­mended and higher,” she said.

“Four stu­dents were awarded ‘hon­ours plus’ with an­other four stu­dents awarded hon­ours with dis­tinc­tion.

“Ex­am­iner Penny But­ler, who has ex­am­ined stu­dents all over Aus­tralia as well as over­seas, com­mented that Hor­sham School of Dance stu­dents were well pre­pared, knew all their work and the­ory and were a plea­sure to ex­am­ine.”

Ms Booker said stu­dents could en­roll in classes for a shorter term four or for 2019.
