Flo: I am really enjoying my first year at Pgroup, I feel like, as it is a small group everyone is improving so fast.

Sadie: The change is good! I feel we are getting higher level training and it's nice as we are getting more individual help.
Sophie: Performance group this year is different because we have Thursdays with B so we are getting a change of technique class. Also it is nice to be in a smaller group because there is more focus on each person.
What is most challenging about Pgroup?
Silas: I think the most challenging part of Pgroup is the pieces as they are always much harder technically, but I really feel I am improving with each rehearsal.
Sadie: The most challenging part is definitely the choreography and tasks we've been doing towards the piece, however it's definitely worth it, seeing it come together.
Sophie: The most challenging part of Pgroup is some of B's technique exercises because she really pushes us out of our comfort zone.
Greta: The most challenging part of Pgroup is being pushed technically through a variety of exercises in class.
Flo: I am really looking forward to seeing our piece done and being performed, the choreography is the most challenging part however is helping us improve each week.
