Exam Results for 2018
29th November 2018
As exam time wraps up for another year, we reflect with great pride on the efforts of all our students over the course of 2018.
This year, we had a 100% pass rate for all students taking their RAD Examinations, with 80% receiving a Distinction. In fact, over the last 22 years, we have maintained a 100% pass rate for all our students taking the exams, this amounts to thousands of students! What an outstanding result and a wonderful accomplishment, for NDA and for our committed, talented and passionate students.
RAD exams are the most prestigious on offer to dance pupils, offering a “dance passport” to those who rise to the challenge. The Royal Academy of Dance exams are recognised worldwide, and aimed to assist dancers in developing musicality and artistry, and also to reward hard work and dedication. Creativity is at the heart of the NDA syllabus and the RAD exams allow our students to explore movement and expression, and to build self-esteem and confidence in the process.
The staff at NDA are all fully qualified with Royal Academy of Dance and are consistently learning and studying under the CPD (Continual Professional Development) Program provided by the RAD. We believe that our own continued education, combined with our passion for dance, has provided us with a framework for success as we have created a supportive learning environment for the children who train with us. We are very proud of each one of our NDA dancers, those from 2018, as well as all students who have taken exams in our studio over the last 22 years. It is extremely rewarding for us to share our own passion with like-minded young people, and then watch them work hard to achieve great things.
Well done to all students, we can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!!
