Below is a list of Do’s & Don’ts to help you on the day:
Please arrive at least 40 minutes before your allocated examination slot (45 if you need your hair doing) as sometimes the schedule runs more quickly. If you miss the examination slot, unfortunately no other accommodation can be made on the day.
Please make sure all leotards, sock and shoes are clean (you can clean leather ballet shoes easily with washing up liquid or leather soap)
For ballet & tap exams hair need to be in cross plaits. If you are not confident in putting your child’s hair up and wish to have it done please allow plenty of time before the exam. If you need help with hair please bring hair/buns nets and pins with you.
No jewellery of any kind is allowed for exams. Also no temporary tattoos or drawing on skin. (If your child is unable to remove earrings then please cover them with flesh coloured plasters)
No underwear is allowed under leotards for examinations
Your child will be allocated a number for the exam. Pin on numbers will be
provided by the school to aid the examiner in identifying the student. Please make sure you hand the number back after exams.
Please check you have all the right uniform before the exam day.
Pre Primary Ballet & Primary uniform:
BBO Dance skirted pink leotard
Pink Ballet socks
Pink leather Ballet shoes (with elastics)
By now all students should have the BBO Dance uniform – if you do not and you are in Into to Ballet or Pre Primary please make efforts to purchase this before your exam session.
For Intro to ballet and Pre Primary Ballet wherever possible please wear the new BBO dance skirted leotard.
Grade 1 – 3 Ballet uniform:
Pink ballet tights
Pink leather ballet shoes (with ribbon)
Pre Primary & Primary Tap Uniform:
We will provide your leotards
White tap socks
Black tap shoes
If you are missing uniform, we will have a limited amount of spares to borrow/ buy on the day.
Primary students – please don’t buy a new skirted leotard as you will go into the lavender leotards if successful and move to Grade 1 – Please let me know if you need to borrow a leotard.
Exam days become very busy so wherever possible please help by only bringing one adult per child and no other children than those dancing.
Please respect that the teachers time is limited on exam days, I will be busy
with the children taking exams. If you have any concerns or questions please try where possible to email or talk to me or your child’s teachers before the day.
I know if sounds very strict but I would like all children going into their exam session looking as neat and professional as their work! …. every little bit helps!
