A Recap of an EXCITING 2015

a) Achievements for 2015

2) Dance Examinations November 2015
Naatyaanjali launched its first mid-year theory and practical dance examinations in June 2015. Year-end theory and practical dance examinations were held in November 2015 for the students from the 9am & 11am Saturday classes. For the first time, the beginners from the 10am Saturday class attempted the practical dance examinations.
Compared to the examinations in June 2015, students fared much better in November 2015. Only two needed further attention for improvement.
Students answered open-ended questions during the theory examination. For practical examination, students were individually tested on what they had learnt in class.
The examinations enabled the students and their Parents to better understand the areas of strengths and weaknesses. The significant improvements noted in some students were notably due to the efforts put in by the Parents. Thank you and Kudos Parents!
Parents and students were made to continue to work together to obtain the correct answers from www.naatyaanjali.com for the questions that were answered incorrectly. Parents welcomed this idea as it provided an opportunity for Parents to better understand what their children were learning in class.
