School's dancing feat!
by Henry James

TALENTED pupils of a dance school are celebrating an amazing 100 per cent exam success.

All 49 students of Rufford School of Dance entered for exams with the International Dance Teachers’ Association (IDTA) achieved either a distinction or merit grade.

And there was special recognition for two ballet students, Molly McCourt, 17, and six-year-old Laura Tingle, who both achieved exceptional marks.

In fact, Molly’s ability impressed the IDTA examiner so much that she has been nominated for an International Theatre Dance Award, an accolade given only to the top five per cent of candidates in the UK.

Principal, Lorraine Ryan, who founded the school in 2006, commented: “These fantastic results are a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the students.

”I’m so proud of all of them and really pleased that the examiner recognised the special talents of Molly and Laura.

“Although Laura was too young to receive a nomination this year I’m sure it will only be a matter of time.”

Classes are held at Rufford Village Hall throughout the week and resumed on Saturday, September 7. For further information contact Lorraine Ryan on 07939688447.
