First dance competition in over 2 years and these are the results: So proud and it was so nice to be back at comps and seeing live dancers. Quite emotional today. Some first time ever dancers for us; Shylah and Lola and both smashed it. Own Choreography being competed and new routines and some routines that never got a chance to be competed before we were in lockdown. Thank you @magnetarevents . First comp back and it was great.

BBO Ballet Results 2018 - saw the best results to date for the school. 19 students sat their ballet exams from pre-primary to Grade 4 and the students achieved 12 distinctions, 5 merits and 2 passes. Amazing results and the best decision to change the school to an academy and have all the students study all the styles. At Redds, we don't wait for students to be guaranteed a distinction, we train them for a year and they sit their exams. They work extremely hard studying ballet and all their other classes contribute to their strength and  skill, giving them their results. We want to improve on this result for next year. Bring on 2019 Ballet and Tap exams. Well Done Team Redds

Thank you Waitrose, Chipping Sodbury

National Starpower Champions 2014

This weekend my elite competition team took part in the American Dance and talent competitions called Starpower. This is a competition organisation that has been running for over 20yrs in the states. It hosts 40,000 acts per year with over 150,000 competitors. It has been operating an annual competition in the UK for 6 years.

My competition team have been training every Saturday as well as during the week in their dance and technique classes. We went with 3 team pieces, 3 solos and a duet. I was going to use this weekend to see where our little school lies on a national level and to see if what we were doing and producing was on par with some of the top London schools.

The scoring process is set out into 3 categories Star- beginners, All-Star - Intermediates and Power- Advanced, based on hours of training etc. Therefore my dancers were all in power. The judging is done by 3 separate judges who award for technique, routine and overall. 5 stars being awarded for the best routines with a score between 290-300. And it goes down 4 stars, 4.5stars etc etc. Then the overall high scores for that power division are awarded. So all duets, all solos etc

Our results were as follows:
Milan Cacacie & Lily Griffiths duet - 1st place and 5 stars- 2nd highest overall power duet 
Rhian Streeter- 1st place acro/gymnastic solo and 5 stars- 4th highest overall power solo
Rhian Streeter - flexibility special judges award
Milan Cacacie - 5 stars jazz solo
Milan Cacacie - 1st place lyrical solo and 5 stars and -3rd highest overall power solo
Milan Cacacie - Miss Star Power Title Winner for lyrical solo
Open Team - Avengers Assemble - 4 and 3/4 stars 1st place, 8th place highest overall power small group 
Contemporary Team - 1st place 5 stars, 2nd place highest overall power small group
Lyrical Team - 1st place and 5 stars, 1st place champions overall power small group
Team members- Milan Cacacie, Lily Griffiths, Elle, Shephard, Brodie Shutt and Rhian Streeter

The girls came away with only losing a quarter off from a clean sweep of 5 stars and winners in everything they did. Their technique and training showed on stage and our little school from Yate had some of the best dancers on that stage this weekend. I am so proud and couldn't be happier. It is also proof that we are training dancers who can compete on a national and soon to be international level. The competition for the teams and solos was incredibly hard with some amazing schools and talent taking part but our redds team is up there with the best of them.

Congratulations Team REDDS.
