Solos, Duos & Gracefuls


Physical and graceful solos and duos are for pupils wishing to compete at an elite level. “Solos” as the word implies, are performed alone on stage, while two participants perform “duos” simultaneously. Competitions are held between March and June and are determined by age. Pupils wishing to perform solos are required to have achieved a certain exam level. This is also dependent on the pupil’s age.

Physical solos comprise of free exercise, gymnastic movements, flexibility and ballet dance steps choreographed to music. Graceful solos comprise of aesthetic movement, balletic dance and flexibility choreographed to a piece of music similar to aesthetics.

Pupils undertaking solos must show complete commitment and dedication to their teamwork before they can participate in solos. It is the responsibility of the individual coach to costume and arrange music for the solo.
