At Sara Anderson School of Dance we study the bbodance Ballet syllabus from Intro to Ballet for our 5 year olds through to our senior Advanced 2.
Our annual bbodance ballet exams are held towards the end of Term 3. While the exams are not compulsory, the syllabus offers great technique and style which helps the students when it comes to performing. The exam process is a fantastic way to demonstrate what the students have been learning as well as boost their confidence and performance ability.
Once the exams have been sat each year the students will begin learning the new work as well as their dances for the Showcase performance.
“ When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor.
It’s to enjoy each step along the way.”
- Wayne Dryer
