Joy DawnMiss Ransley was recently recognized in the United Kingdom for loyal and devoted service to the Royal Academy of Dance UK, having acted in the capacity as an Examiner for the Academy for over fifty years – an extraordinary achievement.

In 1954, Joy examined as part of her training to become an examiner (there was no formal training at that time!) then completed the full examination in 1965 - her first tour being in 1956.

Joy and her sister Dawn are extremely proud of their past and present students and have witnessed their many successes as performers in theatre and stage; as teachers themselves and as members of some of the most prestigious ballet companies overseas and in the world ie Royal Ballet London, English National Ballet, School of American Ballet (New York), American Ballet School, Washington State Ballet School USA.

So from the beginnings of the Ransley Ballet School in 1947 in the School of Arts Hall, Granville, Sydney, the studio continues to flourish and produce students of the highest caliber under the direction of Joy and her daughter Nicole.

Joy continues, to this day, to examine world-wide, sharing her knowledge and passing on the Ransley unique style, technique and artistry to her many students.
