Young Tenterden Ballet Studio dancers show off their prowess with excellent exam results

A ballet school has been keeping its pupils on their toes – because it has recorded a 100% pass rate for exams.

Tenterden Ballet Studios put 36 youngsters, from the ages of six to 16, through their paces in a set of exams judged by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.

All of the youngsters, who are studying a method of classical ballet known as Cecchetti, made the grade and have found out the results of tests at Christmas time.

The 150-pupil school has been established in Tenterden for more than 25 years and its principal Victoria Zafiropoulos trained as a professional dancer with the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in London.

She said: “The success of our dancers is down to a lot of hard work on their part and because of our dedicated teachers, who have all been dance professionals before coming into teaching.”

Tenterden Ballet Studios also teaches tap and modern dance, and classes take place in three studios in Church Street, Tenterden, with Ashford classes at the Women’s Institute hall, Faversham Road, Kennington.
