  • BRITISH BALLET ORGANIZATION EXAMINATIONS

    We offer the opportunity for students to undertake British Ballet Organization (BBO) exams. Students will prepare for  exams during class times during terms 1, 2 and 3.

    BBO ballet syllabus provides a great foundation of classical ballet training from preschoolers to advanced. It is an internationally recognized syllabus which has a strong focus on training young dancers to have strength, grace and musicality.

    DANCE AWARDS

    Dance awards are a wonderful performance opportunity for students who wish to push themselves further. Students who wish to learn a solo dance  will have a series of private lessons and will to perform on exam day in costume for the examiner.

    Gold medalists will then be invited to compete and the Theatre Awards semi finals which held during BBO Dance Days every year which students travel all over New Zealand to attend. It is held in Christchurch and every second year in the North Island.
