RAD Ballet Primary in Dance Exam

Evan took his RAD ballet Primary in Dance (PID) Exam recently. Pic above - getting his hair done for the exam at Sole to Soul Dance Studio (STSDS). About a month earlier, he took his trial exam. 

All ready! Final pose with his ballet teacher: Miss Alice Yap Cui Xin. Now, he's graduated to Grade 1. It's been almost 2 yrs since he started ballet lessons. I still remember the days when he could not do his splits during stretching time (cos he's not very flexible) but nowadays, he can do it without yelping in pain. All it takes is practice and perseverence. At times he told me he wants to stop ballet because he doesn't like stretching (due to the pain) but I know he enjoys dancing with his friends during the lessons so I encourage him to continue. Now that he can stretch better, he does not complain any more. 

As for Marissa, she has also graduated, but from baby ballet to Pre-primary in Dance  (PPID). She will take her exam next year. 

*Update: Evan obtained a distinction (79%) for his PID ballet exam, scoring a perfect 10 in the creative dance routine.
