Kidz In The Biz Performing Arts Studio director Keira Noble and her students have tap-danced their way to success.
Ms Noble and Kidz In The Biz were awarded Highest Honours point awards for NSW by leading dance syllabus Ballet Australasia Limited (BAL).
The BAL is a dance syllabus for students undertaking structured graded examinations that lead to teaching certificates.
Students are marked on their tap-dancing skills and Ms Noble’s tap-dancers all received high scores for their routines.
‘‘There is so much competition in NSW and our students achieving these results shows that we work really hard at hitting new goals and they are always excited to learn new things,’’ Ms Noble said.
‘‘We put our success down to hard work.’’
To add to their success, the Castle Hill dance studio has achieved wins at the Sydney Eisteddfod in dance and vocal categories since 2006.
They have been announced as a finalist in the Local Business Awards for the past five years.
Students from the studio have been selected for Dance Academy, Hi-5 and So You Think You Can Dance filming.
Last year, the studio and its dancers were awarded more than 200 trophies and placings for troupe competitions.
Ms Noble attributes the studio’s success to keeping her students interested.
‘‘Our classes allow our students to grow and be nurtured,’’ she said.
‘‘They are happy to put the hard work in to achieve the highest possible reward.’’
Ms Noble and her sister, Melanie, opened Kidz In The Biz in 2006.
They teach classes in modern dance, singing, hip-hop, lyrical, jazz and theatre among others.
