Dancers Heading to Scholarships!
Last June several of our dancers completed their dance exams with the British Association of Teachers of Dancing. Beyond their medal testing, dancers who were up for the challenge were also given the opportunity to test in the exam gradework for ballet and tap. Students entering an exam level of Grade III or higher can then be recognized and invited by the examiner to participate in the North American Trixie Hardy Dance Scholarships in Toronto. To be chosen for this honour, the examiner must believe a particular students' skill level is above standard for dancers their age. This year Mary Voyer (tap), Erin Timm (tap), Erinn Brown (ballet) and Natalie Robertson (ballet) were selected and we couldn't be more excited and proud! They will be taking class with other nominated students from all over the country, competing for cash scholarships, given by the Association for them to further their dance education. We wish them all the best as they take part in this event on October 14th and 15th, 2016.
