We believe parents need evaluation of their child’s progress & ability
Parents are invited to watch their child’s lesson at the usual class time twice per year. A small student presentation of the work studied during the term will be given for parents. Parents will be notified of dates and times through regular newsletters.
Preparatory, Pre-primary and Grade One students will receive a certificate of achievement at the conclusion of the years study.
Grade Two Examinations
Grade Two students are introduced to their first ballet exam. The assessments are held at one of our central studios with their teacher and class peers. Participating students receive a report with feedback from the assessors and their teacher. It is highly recommended that students participate in the grade examinations. There is a small charge to cover the costs of the exams, which are held at the end of third term.
Grade Three- Senior Examinations
Only those enrolled in a Level 1 and Level 2 class in Grades three through to Seniors, participate in the yearly Grade Examination. These exams are held at one of our central studios with their Level 2 teacher and class peers. Participating students receive a report with feedback from the assessors and their teacher, as well as a certificate. It is highly recommended that eligible students take part in this exam. There is a small charge to cover the costs of the exams, which are held at the end of third term.
Major Annual Production
We encourage student participation in our major ballet productions. The experience includes working with state, national and sometimes international professional artists. Students discover the excitement and enjoyment of working in a professional environment.
In addition to normal class hours students will be required to attend one extra weekend rehearsal of approximately 2.5 hours duration, one theatre rehearsal of approximately 2.5 hours and one performance. Costumes are hired at minimal cost to the student to alleviate stress and expense for the parents.
