KHSD is extremely proud to announce that Gabrielle Krinas has been awarded the RAD solo Seal Award.


The Solo Seal examination may only be attempted by students who gain their RAD Advanced 2 with Distinction. It is estimated that less than 1% of RAD students in over 70 countries worldwide who take their RAD exams reach this level- and even less are awarded the Solo Seal.

Fondly known as Elle - she has now taken up her full time training in London at the Central School of Ballet. 

Congratulations Elle!

Some of KHSDs R.A.D exam students participate in the annual Betsy Sawers Memorial Graded and Vocational Awards. Everyone danced beautifully and we are proud of every one who took to the stage. Results can be seen here.

KHSD Performance groups and some soloists perform at  local competitions annually.

The fantastic results can be found on facebook. We are very proud of every KHSD dancer who participated and performed showing their love of dance goes beyond KHSD walls.
