Students from the Drewitz School of Dance in Estevan, under the direction of Lorie-Gay Drewitz-Gallaway, ARAD recently received their results from London, England.

A new RAD curriculum is being presented in the next few years that is slowly taking effect in Professional Dance Studios worldwide. Medals are now introduced for each Grade in Bronze (Pass), Silver (Merit) and Gold (Distinction).

With Ballet being the fundamental discipline in dance, children are encouraged to participate in examinations which are an individual goal for them. Students are now being strategically marked for exams as well as accreditation in their dance exams. Technique, Posture, Musicality,

Presentation, Free Movement, Character, and their Dance is now graded. The standard required to pass is world-wide throughout all countries. Examinations for this session were for students Grades Four to Eight.
