Sunday, October 7, we just finished the last fourth day of exams for professional dance teachers. A huge thank you to Lori Woods-Gay, our USISTD examiner, for 25 hours of hard work. It takes a tremendous amount of mental and physical energy to complete so many exams and medal tests. We, at the Dance Pavilion, could not be happier to have such experienced and professional examiner.
In conclusion, I would like to congratulate today’s candidates: Yudan Zhao (Diana) for passing a module exam in Waltz in American Ballroom and Jaana Lillemagi for passing an American Ballroom exam at Associate level. Finally, I congratulate David McVicker on completing the second USISTD exam, this time in International Latin.
