Over the last two days, we have been busy with our special session of ballet exams that our studio requested for this year.
The examiner was Bonnie de Beer from Durban and all our students thoroughly enjoyed their exam.
Had another busy week at the Opera House this week where we had all our Amateurs Dancing. The standard was high and the competition was tough.
We are proud once again of all our dancers who all did their personal best.
An extra well done to our gold winners:
Marie Louise Strydom
And Dancing In The Rain Group

Well done to Carrie and the girls from Jeffreys Bay, as well as her Humansdorp and Patensie Studios for wowing the crowds this past weekend at the Lentefees at the Nico Malan High School.
Here is a couple of photo’s of them in action.
Well done to all our novices who danced today. Here are some of the first dancers on the stage this year.
The second day was even busier, so, unfortunately, we didn’t get everybody.
Wednesday the Thursday was just a busy, so didn’t get everyone.
Here is a list of all the gold awards. Well done! We know the judges, Karen Jooste and Sean Bovim didn’t give out golds easily this year, so if you were lucky enough to get one your performance was extra special.
