Royal Acadamy of Ballet Exam

Lauren and her friend Ella

Lauren's ballet school goes by the syllabus from the Royal Academy of Dance. Part of this program is taking a spring exam. We have been working hard with extra practices over the past month. It is amazing to see how much progress the girls make as they work really hard for the exam. It is a good time of sharpening skills.

  1. Hi Ruth-thanks for sharing those pics. Your daughter looks like she really enjoys ballet-my youngest one is bugging me to do that as well, but we do not have a place near us at this time. Hope all is going well with you and your family.
