Dance exam results 2017


Huge congratulations to all students that took ISTD dance exams in July 2017. We achieved a 100% pass rate yet again, and our seniors that took vocational, professional level exams received Distinctions!

In total, the 34 children that took exams received 9 distinctions, 29 merits and 6 passes – results that everyone should be very proud of indeed.

Jersey Eisteddfod 2016 Round-up

Huge congratulations to our Jersey 2016 away team for all of their achievements last week! The competition was extremely stiff and of a very high standard – however I am so proud of how everyone coped with dancing on a new stage with no prior rehearsal time, and often under rather stressful conditions.
