Lucy celebrates hat trick of performing arts distinctions

Lucy Dodd, a student at Stone’s Rooftop Studios performing arts school, has achieved distinctions in three disciplines, with fantastic results across the board for dozens of students.


The talented 15-year-old made the coveted grades in her LAMDA drama, RAD ballet and ISTD Tap exams following training in all three at the studio.

Whilst Lucy’s achievement is outstanding, she’s not alone in having cause to celebrate – pupils across the board achieved fantastic results, with a 100% pass rate. In ballet and tap exams, which saw 30 students aged from 5 – 16 years take exams ranging from Pre-Primary to Grade 6, the majority scooped High Merits with four students achieving distinctions.

In LAMDA drama, meanwhile, all 12 of the students taking their exams passed; 6 with High Merits and 5 with distinctions alongside Lucy.


Studio director, Laura Keeling, says:  “We’re massively proud of all our students and the hard work and dedication they’ve shown in the run-up to their exams. Their efforts have certainly paid off! Credit must also go to our very talented team of teachers for guiding the students through what can be a stressful time and bringing out their full potential.

“In Lucy’s case we’re blown away by how hard she worked and the fantastic end result. Studying for three sets of exams outside of school work takes grit, determination and commitment alongside talent. She has proven herself beyond doubt. We really think she’s got what it takes to follow her dream of a career in the industry, and we’ll be here to support her every step of the way.”
