Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing:
Ballet Exams for Adults at Woking Dance Space & Surrey Community Dance.
Shani joined Working Dance Space classes in 2010, and started teaching here in 2013.
She wanted to offer Adults the opportunity to take Ballet Exams, and by mutual agreement started teaching the Advanced 1 and Grade 5 in Imperial Ballet syllabus for Woking Dance Space in 2016.
After eight years Shani gained her dance teaching qualifications from scratch with the ISTD. She gained Distinction in Advanced 1 and Advanced 2 in Imperial classical ballet, and achieved her Diploma in Dance instruction followed by her Diploma in Dance education. In 2020, just out of lockdown, Shani finally received her Licentiate in Imperial Ballet teaching qualifications.
On Friday mornings at Woking Dance Space, Shani currently teaches Advanced 1 and Grade 6 in Imperial ballet.
Early in 2021 Shani realised the requirement to add an extra class per week for those wishing to take exams. In addition to the classes at Woking Dance Space on Fridays Shani added an extra Grade 6 class to Monday evenings at St Mark's. In 2023 an Intermediate class was required to allow her ladies to progress, so this is now part of the Monday evening line up at Surrey Community Dance .
Shani also started private coaching for two brave ladies’, who wish to take their Grade 4.
Shani has a 100% pass rate with her adult dancers, having helped over 10, to date, gain Graded and Vocational Graded Ballet Exams in Imperial classical ballet through Woking Dance Space and Surrey Community Dance.
