Our highland team has just had a fabulous weekend Queenstown at the annual NZ Academy of Highland and National Dancing

Sep 19, 2022

As well as learning from the experts, we supported and celebrated several of our dancers…

Friday night saw Imogen Grayson sit the prestigious Solo Seal examination, with Zoe Francis and Jayna Potts entertaining the audience between examination dances as they performed with the Highland Dance Company of NZ - the first time the Dance Company has been able to perform since 2019!

Saturday night saw Zoe F, Jayna and Zoe Blackmore (in absence) receive their Diplomas, with all of them gaining an Honours in All Grades endorsement. This achievement requires years of hard work and commitment to sit 15 practical dance exams and 10 theory exams, and to pass all of these exams with the highest pass mark is no small feat!

A special presentation was also made to one of Robyn’s past pupils, Anna Ashmore (nee Millar), who received her Solo Seal medallion. Anna was only the 18th person to ever pass this examination, and it was a thrill to be there with her as she celebrated this wonderful moment.

Tau kē! Proud is certainly an understatement.
