Stonyhurst’s Dancers prepare for major exams

Students from Hodder House, Stonyhurst Saint Mary’s Hall and the College are working very hard on the lead up to their dance exams which take place over the next few weeks.  Whilst it is an anxious time for all, as everyone works to remember and perfect their syllabus requirement, it is inspiring to see the progression that everyone is making with their ballet, tap and modern.

Starting at pre-school level assessments and leading to graded and vocational exams, these achievements at higher level are accepted as a measure of achievement by vocational schools attended by young people aiming to dance professionally. They are also highly valued by  universities and other Higher Education institutions offering degree courses and programmes in the performing arts.
