A DANCING school has maintained a 100 per cent pass rate for a third year.

Forty-one pupils from five-13, from Buntingford Ballet School took classical ballet exams recognised by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing - and all passed with either a merit or a distinction.

It was a fine way to mark the school's 300th exam.

School principal Philippa McMeechan said: "It's a fantastic achievement which exceeded our expectations."

Pupils had been preparing for the exam for the past year and were marked on musicality, artistry, and technical ability, so they had to work on their performance as well as interpretation of music.

Philippa said: "They were really excited and pleased they had all passed, but they deserved it, because they worked very hard.

"For some pupils it was their first exam so they did particularly well because they didn't know what to expect."

Anyone who would like more information about the dance school should contact Philippa on 01763 271010.
