LAST SUNDAY, students, parents and friends of Marcia’s Dance Centre and Stage School in Calpe gathered together at the Diamante Beach Hotel, to watch the Medal Presentation and enjoy a performance of recent routines in ballet, tap and hip hop.
Councillor Carol Saunders presented the medals and awards, all of which were gained in SIPBE (La Sociedad Independiente de Profesores de Baile en Europa).
All students performed extremely well, many of them gaining Honours and Anna Browning gaining a remarkable 100 per cent score in her Grade 3 Tap exam.
‘This is a first time a student has achieved a perfect score, we have had 98 and 99 but never 100% so congratulations to Anna’ said Marcia.
The final presentations of the afternoon were the awards for the highest marks in the various categories.
These trophies will be kept by the winners until the next examinations when they are passed onto the next winners.
- Highest junior medallist in the ballroom branches – Anna Browning
- Highest senior medallist in the ballroom branches – Pauline Askew
- Highest junior award in the stage branches – Anna Browning
- Highest senior award in the stage branches – Nacho Cardona Garcia
Once all medals and awards were presented, the sequence dancers performed a short display of their routines.
They invited anyone familiar with the dances to join in, which welcomed a great response from the audience.
Marcia’s Dance Centre and Stage School offers classes and private lessons for all levels from tiny tots to adults.
It specialises in training both amateur and professional dancers by enhancing and developing its students’ dancing knowledge in all forms of dance.
As well as preparing its students for a stage career, gaining their teachers qualifications or simply grade examinations and medals as a dancer, Marcia’s Dance Centre and Stage School can offer acting, singing, and music classes to complement its students’ dancing skills.
With Marcia’s Dance Centre and Stage School expertise, absolute beginners can learn to dance to a standard suitable to their requirements (for example, that special dance at their Wedding, Christmas Party or special event) or if students just wish to seek some extra enjoyment from their dancing, Marcia’s Dance Centre and Stage School can develop a programme designed especially for them.
All students are given the opportunity to perform regularly in Marcia’s Dance Centre and Stage School shows and with other Professional and Amateur companies.
