THESE dancers are jumping for joy, thanks to recent good form.

The South Melbourne and Armadale Dance Centre is kicking up its heels over its students’ successes.

Ben Carter and Tim Stoney have received ballet scholarships, and Isaac and Jacob Moulton, tap scholarships, from the internationally recognised British Ballet Organisation.

Ben was one of three dancers to receive a perfect score in BBO exams. Jacob also won a scholarship to study tap and theatrical dance in New York.

Collectively, the school has won a teacher aggregate troupe award at the State Dance Competitions. Director Caroline Dall is thrilled. “We have just had a completely brilliant year,” she said. “The standard of our staff is pretty high. That makes a big difference.”

The school tutors classical ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop and singing for children aged five to 18.

It’s looking to take in more young dancers who might not normally afford its classes, with four full scholarships for dancers aged 11 and over, funded by an anonymous donor.
