Congratulations to Our Advance I Team!
Three students from our school took the RAD Advanced 1 ballet exam and passed with good results and high marks: One merit and two distinctions.
It is not easy for our students to get such excellent achievements during the pandemic. From studio to Zoom, online classes presented so many new challenges: lagging music, frozen screens, limitations on space and floor surface at home, lack of equipment (mirrors and barres), etc. For advanced levels, Students always learn better in studio with teacher's hands-on adjustments than online with just verbal explanations. Without the in-person interaction with the teacher, it was very hard for students to get the effective corrections. When finally studio reopened, with only two months left to prepare for the exam, our students and teacher found themselves in a race against time. Despite all these obstacles, with all their great passions for ballet, hard work and unwavering dedication, they made the best of a bad situation.
Bravo girls! Congrats! Wishing you a nice trip to the next chapter of your ballet journey!
