Jasmyn Evered, a student of the Coast Academy of Dance (CAD) for 16 years, successfully passed her Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) associate teaching examination in late November. All 15 CAD students who took the ISTD examinations passed with top marks, and 12 of them achieved a vocational level, earning the dancers high school credits towards their graduation. The students set out to take their examinations in the spring, but were postponed due to the pandemic-related limits on international travel that is typically required. They continued to train and study for their exams, however, taking them via video conferencing and webcam recordings. “The resilience and determination of these students is to be commended,” CAD said in a news release.
