MORE than 60 dance exams were completed by Dance Now students on Sunday.

Australian Academy of Theatrical and Ballet Dancing examiner Deena Peacock travelled from Melbourne to examine the students in their tap and theatrical exams.

Dance Now principal Kelly Schulz said the students from Warracknabeal, Dimboola, Rainbow, Beulah and Hopetoun had been practising their exam work since the beginning of term one, under the guidance of Kristin Livingston and herself.

“It is great to see so many students striving to improve their technique, skills and knowledge,” Ms Schulz said.

“In her remarks during presentation, Miss Deena said all students had set a high standard of performance,” she said.

All students passed their exams with many achieving honours – and received medals and certifi cates denoting levels accomplished.

Trophies were awarded to Amy Holland, Macie Nitschke and Hayley Anderson for their outstanding performances on the day and an AATBD scholarship was awarded to Ella Holland.

“I am extremely proud of the work our students have put in,” Ms Schulz said.

Ms Schulz said that students were now moving on to their jazz and classical ballet examinations, to be assessed in August.
