PP – Grade 1 Feedback forms. 2009 AGM we announced that you would be
receiving PP – Grade 1 feedback forms from this year. This is not going to happen after lengthy
discussions by the Examiner’s; in its place will be an etiquette/how to note,
attached to your PP – Grade 1 timetable. It is hoped that teachers will use
this note in the spirit it is intended – continuous improvement.
Major syllabi –
change from ‘additional’ to ‘alternative’.
Most of these changes are required at the Advanced 1 level. These will be changed when next the ‘Notes’
go to print.
Men’s Advanced 2 Pirouette
Enrico Diploma - 4th
The Dancer’s Notebook will now officially be an inclusion in the listing
of reference books for the Enrico Diploma
Advanced 2 DVD & CD –
is in the process of being edited and we are hopeful for a release in early
examination Category A candidates. Teachers are asked to be very careful in
preparing their Major Category A candidates in their Pointe work. Advanced 1 and beyond, Examiners are going to
be looking very closely at the category A candidates ability to perform the
point work – the candidates stamina has been observed as a issue as well as
demonstration of the syllabus’
– Examiners are going to be marking this section as ‘Accurate demonstration
of the syllabus as set” ie your students will be penalised if you teach
them the syllabus wrong. Please take
advantage of the resources available to you to ensure that this does not
– focus on ‘breakdown of steps’ and pointe work.
