Ballet Performance Awards are tentatively scheduled for June 2018.

 

Performance Awards are open to all ballet students who would like the opportunity to be independently assessed.  

 

Medal and certificate presentations are on the same day as the exam which is performed in front of a live audience and the adjudicator.  

 

More about the Performance Awards:

 

Stimulated by the desire to improve their performance, students make exceptional progress.

 

A challenge for the students to excel.

  • Every student is acknowledged with a medal and certificate.
  • The solo dances enhance technique and performance quality.
  • Parents have the opportunity to see their children dance on their own, in an environment that is not competitive.
  • Maintain interest and enthusiasm over a period of years as the students progress from level to level.
