Talented dancers have once again achieved ‘outstanding’ results in their recent exams, upholding their dance school’s 100 per cent pass record.
The youngsters, all pupils of the Grantham School of Dancing, were graded in their chosen disciplines of either ballet, tap and modern. Not only did they all pass, but they all achieved distinction and merit level.
The dancers, all aged between six and 18 years old work towards their exams each term and have around four intensive classes just before they take them.
Dance teachers Michelle Baker and Anita Lane are very proud of their pupils success. They said: “Once again, the results were outstanding and reflected the fact that all the students worked really hard. Their commitment maintains the 100 per cent record of Grantham School of Dancing in examinations. They should be very proud of their achievements.”
