OIBA 2017 Annual Exam

Last Sunday OIBA had our 2017 Annual Exam.

We were very thrilled to have Oregon Ballet Theatre Ballet Master and Rehearsal Director Lisa Kipp, Principle Dancer Chauncey Parsons, Company Artist Makino Hildestad, Thomas Baker and Jessica Lind join us as the panel and master classes teachers for the exam.

Everyone did a great job during the Exam. The guest teachers and panel judges had many good things to say about our students. We are very proud of each of them.


The exam comprehensively evaluates the students ability after a year of study. It also helps us have an idea what to focus on for the next phase of work. Most of all, the students get to enjoy a great class.
