Spring Ballet Intensive
Every year we provide our Ballet students with the opportunity to participate in Royal Academy of Dance Ballet Exams, which will be held in our Roseville studio in term 4.
To prepare for these exams in November/ early December, students are invited to attend a 3 day ballet intensive workshop to build their confidence and learn the additional dances required for their exam.
Students must attend 3 days of holiday classes either during the Winter or Spring Holidays (you may, of course, spread those 3 days across both holiday workshops) or book 3 x 1 hour private lessons during term 3 in preparation for exams. ($60 per day early bird rate or $75 per day late enrolments).
Spring Holiday Workshop Details:
Monday 30th September - Wednesday 2nd October
9am - 3pm
St Luke’s Presbyterian Church,
28 Lord St, Roseville

by 9pm on Monday 23rd September. Late enrolments $75 per day.
Wear: Your SDGA uniform or your own choice of leotard, ballet tights and ballet shoes
Bring: A water bottle, morning tea, lunch and a notebook / sticker book to write corrections
Ages: Suitable for dancers age 5 - 15 years. Exams are an individual assessment. The day will start with a group warm up and then individual and small group lessons with Miss Regina and Miss Anne-Louise to learn the dances required for each grade.
If this is your first exam: Exams are a very rewarding experience! You will have a great time challenging your technique and performance skills learning new dances. Approximately 90% of our Ballet students do exams each year. They are so much fun (not scary, at all!) and because our dancers feel so prepared and confident in their work, as soon as they come out of the exam room they ask "can we do that again?!"
Can I still attend the holiday classes even if I'm not doing a Ballet exam this year? Of course. You will have a very fun 3 days improving your technique, gaining confidence and learning new Ballet dances which you may then perform for future exams.
See you in the holidays!
