JTSD student Rachel David took her Solo Seal examination in Vancouver, B.C. on February 28, 2016. The Solo Seal performance award is the highest Royal Academy of Dance examination and is only open to students who have received Distinction for their Advanced 2 exam. The exam focuses on the dancer’s ability to perform with strong technique, precise musicality, and dynamic artistry.

The Solo Seal exam is performed on stage in a theatre before an audience and a panel of judges. This year’s judges were Cynthia Fisher and Marquita Witham-Lester.   We are very proud of Rachel and the hard work and dedication she has shown to reach this level!
