Exam distinction for Broadway stars who have trained together since the age of five
Eight students from the Myra Tiffin Performing Arts School in Stony Stratford achieved excellent exam results and have also spent time on Broadway in New York.
Over the last 10 years the girls, from all over Milton Keynes and the surrounding villages, have danced together and completed all their exams from the age of five.
The ISTD exam, the vocational level intermediate ballet exam, was passed with distinction.
For many of these students it will be their last exam as part time students before they continue their training at vocational colleges.
Many of them have auditioned for full time performing arts schools and they will be moving to London and attending those from September.
Rosina Andrews, from the school, said: “The examiner that we had, who is a senior in the ISTD, commented how lovely it was to have so many advanced students all taking their exams together. When we said that they had done all of them together, from primary, she thought that was delightful, and highlighted the school’s excellent training.”
The same set of girls recently went on a career development trip to New York City, where they spent a whole week taking class at Broadway Dance Centre.
MTPAS recently held their annual show and raised more than £1,000 for local neonatal charity, Emily’s Star.
