Dear Parents and Pupils,

Due to some pupils going away, I have had to revise the times for the mock exams. If you are not on the schedule here, we will schedule you after the holidays over a weekend.

Please scroll down to see your ballet exam dates and times. You need to be at the studio a half hour before your exams, ready and dressed. Hair must be in a bun with both gell and a hair net. Do not forget your character outfits and pointe shoes.
