Dance sensation Cerys Williams picks up notable tap grading triumph

Cerys Williams

A talented Preparatory School dancer added to her list of accolades with yet another grading success.

Cerys Williams, a Year 5 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, was rewarded for her hard work in the lead-up to the assessment with a Merit in her Grade 1 Tap exam, which was held on Wednesday, June 21.

The talented nine-year-old produced another outstanding effort to claim 7/10 marks in each of the four technique stages, including Poise and Stance, Clarity of Beating, Footwork Precision and Line and Co-Ordination.

This was followed up by an 8/10 in the Timing section, while she also secured a 7/10 in her Rhythmic Interpretation stage.

The assessment concluded with the Presentation, Response and Syllabus Knowledge assessment, which included four categories from which Cerys achieved a 31/40 mark to bring her overall total to 74/100 to gain the Merit in fine fashion.

A member of the Pearl Shaw School of Performing Arts in Colwyn Bay, Cerys will now begin working hard with her coaches in the hope of gaining further triumphs in the future.

Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “Congratulations go to Cerys for yet another outstanding grading achievement, which is a testament to her hard work and passion for the performing arts.

“Achieving things outside of the classroom is something we actively encourage here at Rydal Penrhos, and our pupils do a fantastic job of making the most of their time and maximising their huge potential.

“Cerys is racing through various assessments at a rapid rate, and this bodes very well for even more success in the future.”
