Huge congratulations to Tina for successfully becoming an N.A.T.D. examiner, a prestigious appointment within the association. Tina was invited to the headquarters in Birmingham to discuss the potential of the position and a few days later was informed that due to her fabulous CV and passion for the syllabus, she was going to be included as a new examiner. Tina will now be invited across the UK to examine other schools and be able to represent Murilova Ballet School wherever she goes. Well done Tina, we are so proud of you!
Every year MBS celebrate the hard work and fun that goes on in the studio with an end of term display. All proceeds from this go to a charity chosen by the children. Recently, we have donated to MIND and Dorset Children’s Foundation plus a special donation in honour of Grace Greenway who founded the school.
Best of luck to Naomi Booker, who starts at Arts Educational this term and will be studying a BA (Hons) in Musical Theatre – break a leg and don’t forget us!
MBS have really enjoyed performing in local residential homes for the elderly, most recently on stage at the Burwood Nursing Home in Broadstone. It was so lovely to be able to share what we love doing.
Some of our students had a fantastic day at Weymouth Ballet School, where they danced in a workshop taken by Wayne Sleep. They had such fun in class and learning some repertoire from Coppelia.
Lots of our dancers are keen to take their Duke of Edinburgh award, and use their lessons at MBS as a part of that. Well done to those dancers that have completed the award so far, it is a real achievement.
Tina Marsh successfully trained Bethany Hayes for her Associate teaching qualification, for which she was awarded Distinction. She is now at London Contemporary Dance School and is able to teach Classical ballet up to Intermediate level. Well done Bethanie!
