  1. My Dd has done more than one Masters of Ballet course with this teacher and had it impressed upon her never to come in to the studio and stretch cold, but to warm up the body properly first and never to cause the body pain in stretching. The Russian teacher also went to great lengths to explain that the turnout each child should be demonstrating should be from the correct use of the inner thigh and posteria rather than forcing from the feet and straining the knees. i would imagine this comment was possibly misunderstood because of the slight language barrier. This Russian teacher has an extremely good reputation and has her own London based dance school. She's also had in the last year one pupil accepted into the Bolshoi School, two into White Lodge and two to Vaganova School. Dd loves these courses. She is Year 10 at vocational school and this is always her favourite course for Easter and Summer. The facilities (and food!) are also amazing at Sadlers Wells!
  2. Hi Tootu, I asked similar questions and got an email saying: Lessons for students from 11-19 year old start at 10 .00 am and finish at 4/5.00pm depending on the daily timetable. Foundation group: from 12.00-2.00pm Students may wear any ballet uniform abs bring Character shoes and character skirt. For the final day Performance: girls : black sleeveless leotard, black chiffon skirt, black footless tights for contemporary boys: : black tights and short sleeve white top, black ballet shoes. hope this helps!
  3. I'd definitely suggest Tring, either Musical Theatre Course: https://www.tringpark.com/associated-courses/musical-theatre-summer-course or Dance Course: https://www.tringpark.com/associated-courses/summer-dance-course-July2017 both residential
  4. I viewed a First Year US class at RBS before Easter, it was part of the pupils B Tech assessments, using both contemporary and classical dance that they had choreographed in small groups. The pupils were a range of heights and body shapes. Not particularly leggy or skinny which did pleasantly surprise me. They were all immaculate dancers technically, especially in the contemporary that we saw the most of and all had a lovely stage presence. I would encouranpge everyone not to put too much store by rumours of height and weight requirements and just go in there and go for it. You might just have what they're looking for despite being 5'1" or 5'9"

  7. Hi Elia, We have applied for Masters of Ballet which will be based at Sadlers Wells. The webpage is: http://www.mastersofballet.org Applications are by sending a video of a ballet or contemporary solo. The teaching faculty is amazing.
  8. None of us at our vocational school have heard yet Loulabelle.
  9. We've never applied for RBS Summer School, so my comments are purely based on my opinion not sour grapes. My Dd will be doing POB SS and has always done ENBS SS in the past.
  10. Katy-N photos do not show ability and skill they show body type primarily, limb length and strength of turnout at most. If they wanted to judge on ability they'd ask for videos as POB and Masters of Ballet require.

  12. Or Olga Semenova at Russian Imperial Ballet School. She has had a pupil accepted to Bolshoi Ballet School and two to WL this year.
  13. One from YAGP and one following RB Summer School.
  14. The current Year 9 have had two new additions this year already since October so they may well have already filled the spaces?
  15. Has anyone heard from ENBS Summer School yet for Course A?
