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. The NEW world-wide marking system was brought in this year as well. 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, Character, and their Dances are now graded. The standard required to pass is world-wide throughout all countries. Examinations for this session were for students Grades Primary to Eight and Spring Vocational Exams.

This years examiner was Mrs. Lynn Ahmad from Toronto, Ontario.
