Rooftop students shine in exams
We’re celebrating exceptional dance and drama exam results, once again!
Students from Stone performing arts academy Rooftop Studios have once again recorded exceptional results in internationally-recognised exams.
With students entered in RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) Ballet, ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) Tap & Jazz, and LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) results were strong all round, with a high proportion of sought-after Distinctions and Merits.
LAMDA students achieved 15 distinctions and 6 High Merits; ISTD TAP & Jazz pupils won 10 distinctions, 6 merits and 3 passes; whilst RAD Ballet dancers were bestowed with 8 Distinctions, 7 High Merits and 10 class awards. Studio director, Laura Keeling, says:
“We couldn’t be more proud of what our students – and their teachers – have achieved. These are internationally recognised exams and the work that has gone into getting these great results has been exceptional. For those who want to go onto a career on the stage, these qualifications offer a great foundation – but even if a child wants to study a more academic subject, higher levels of LAMDA and RAD ballet exams can count toward UCAS points. Aside from that, there’s a huge amount of the fun and camaraderie within exam groups and the sense of achievement children get from passing these qualifications is hard to beat.”
