Vocational Grades 

Intermediate Foundation to Advanced - students are required to attend 4 Ballet classes and Conditioning 

classes per week.

Two of the classes are the higher graded level of Grade 6 or 7 and two of the Vocational level. These classes are necessary to prepare the student for Pointe work and the Vocational Exams. Students not able to attend all these classes are still very welcome however; entries for examinations will not be possible. Exams are held twice a year; students are invited to enter for their exam when they have reached their full potential in that particular grade.

Awards and spent a few days and some late nights meeting rap, R&B and kuduro superstars from across Africa: names like Banky W, Fally Ipupa, Daddy Owen, Cabo Snoop and Radio & Weasel, from Angola to Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond, all huge stars in their own countries, selling truckloads of records despite rampant piracy and a rickety music industry. These guys are kind of the Jay Zs and Snoops of Africa, basically.
