I am so humbled by the wonderful feedback and reviews I have received this year from the parents of our students. I obviously see the student's enjoyment and progress each week in class but it's lovely to hear from their parent's point of view.
Mae's Mum wrote a lovely review....
"So very proud that my daughter has achieved a merit in her very first ballet exam. Only two years since she started ballet, a lot of hard work from her and an incredible amount of support, great teaching and dedication from an experienced teacher. Thank you Emma."
Mae started ballet at the age of 11, which in ballet terms makes her a 'late starter'. She worked tirelessly every week on her technique, strength and flexibility and within 2 years she was ready to be entered for her ISTD Grade 4 Ballet exam. This is an exam that is recognised by Ofqual and is on the Regulated Qualifications Framework. The Graded exams do not have their teacher in the room, just 2 dancers at a time and an Examiner. Not only did Mae need to have good enough standard of dance and presentation, need to know all the 'set' exercises without prompting but she also needed to learn the French terminology for all the steps (and their meanings) and be able to perform 'unset' exercises that were given to her on the day (in French).
Quite an achievement to learn all these skills in one lesson a week for 6 terms!
I'm delighted that Mae passed her exam with a Merit and continues to grow and learn with us and is even strong enough to have now started 'En Pointe'.
To see a student's confidence grow from such achievements is what makes my job, the best in the world!
