Calling all PAEC and NON PAEC Ballet teachers! We would love to share our new syllabus revisions with you on our upcoming Ballet syllabus day. This will give you the opportunity to see all the new material, variations added, as well as ask any burning questions that you may need answered in the moment. This will be a HYBRID event for our out-of-province participants, and we are happy to have you join us via Zoom to tap into everything you need to know about the ins and outs of the syllabus.
Along with taking a look at the new added variations, we will also be reviewing the centre practice work of the Intermediate – Advanced grade levels, as well as address and questions you may have regarding the younger grade levels and medal tests.
We look forward to seeing you there!
