Artist - Queensland Ballet
Mr Lyons coached me for the majority of my Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Vocational Graded classical ballet examinations, all of which I received a score of 90% or above. I also received a mark of 100% with High Distinction for one of my exams, a result I strongly attribute to his coaching.
Queenlsand Ballet Junior Extension Program
I soon realized that whilst Andrew is very exacting he is also a warm and nurturing teacher. Like many other of Andrews students I passed all of my Royal Academy of Dance examinations with distinction under his watchful eye. A high point for me was winning my Classical Section of the McDonalds Performing Arts Challenge with a beautiful classical solo choreographed and coached by Andrew.
