Dance Achievement Award (Intermediate level)

RSCDS Exeter Branch is planning to re-run the Dancing Achievement Award course at

Intermediate level, following the successful course in September/October 2016. This is a formal course set up by the RSCDS, and the full syllabus is available on their website. The course and its associated assessment/award is open to all dancers looking to develop their dancing.


The teacher is Duncan Brown, and we can guarantee an enjoyable course!
