Kota Kinabalu: A total of 45 adults and children sat for the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), UK’s medal and professional examinations in the of modern ballroom and Latin American dances recently.

The two-day session organised by Sabah Dance Sports Association (SBDA) was hosted by John’s Dance Academy here in Bornion, Luyang.

English chief examiner Jill Bush, FISTD (Fellowship ISTD), who made her fourth appearance here to conduct the examination, was impressed with the higher standards shown by the examinees this year.

She is hopeful with more dance teachers trained to be professionals here, the standard of Dance Sport in Sabah would continue to rise to be at par with countries in other parts of the world.

Meanwhile, academy principal John Chong (FISTD), who is also Sabah Dancesports Association president, said the examination conducted by an English examiner appointed by ISTD has been held here annually for the past 23 years.

He was also happy with the candidates’ performance in the examinations and said the official results would only be released after approval by the supreme council of ISTD, which will take about a month to process.
