All other classes are Exam classes and are based on a yearly programme (intake *Term 1 each year) exams are usually held in the 2nd half of term 3.
Every year exams are held for Jazz, Ballet, Acro, Hip Hop and Contemporary, and they are usually around August/September. An Examiner comes in to examine the Students on what they have learnt from the start of the year. They are each given a ‘Report Sheet’ stating the mark and a quick comment. The marks are as follows: Pass, Pass Plus, Commended, Highly Commended, Honours, Honours with Distinction. They are then given a Certificate with their name and mark on it.
Every year we have 2 annual dance concerts Our Junior show is performed twice at Southwell Theatre (1 morning and 1 afternoon show on the same day in mid November) dancers learn the routine during normal class time from the middle of term 3 and there are no extra rehearsals.
