As part of our extracurricular activities, the Dance Recital Term III/2016 was successfully organized on 24 February 2017 with the participation of Faculty of Dance students and teachers at SMPAA. The event brought the audience a well-balanced mix of various dance styles, including Twinkle Toes, Commercial Hip-Hop, Imperial Classical Ballet, Contemporary, Dancesport and Modern Jazz in a warm and encouraging environment. During this event, parents also had the opportunity to learn more about the National Association of Teachers of Dancing (NATD), the only awarding organisation offering a graded syllabus and examinations in Contemporary dance.
Of special importance, our Dance Faculty was proud to welcome Ms. Vivienne Saxton (Chair of the Imperial Classical Ballet Faculty and a high level examiner with The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing – ISTD) as a guest of honor. She was very impressed with our state-of-the-art facilities and with the high level of performance skill displayed by our Dance students. Her visit once again emphasized our focus to continue developing the quality of dance education offered here at SMPAA.
