  1. York Dance Assembly
  2. Hi i have just received the email also! My DD is going to be gutted. Following this thread to see what people come up with. Was so organised but now left with the possibility of nothing 😪 X
  3. Thanks everyone, i'll have a word with our teacher.
  4. Both my daughters take idta exams. From reading this others seem to do RAD as well as IDTA. Should my girls my girls be doing this too? What is meant by vocational exams? What's the difference between IDTA exams and rad? sorty for the zillion questions?'!! 😂😂 xx
  5. My DD now knows what she did wrong. She said they did the plies in parallel in the assessment but never thought at the time where here knees were aligning so that should be an easy fix now that she's aware of it. Just need to be consistent with her posture. Apparently all the JAs have been asked by the assessirs to work on posture and tracking so at least it's something they will all focus on in class. Next assessment is May and then we know if she will get a 2nd year ????
  6. Yes even our ballet teacher didn't catch on to the term. You learn something everyday as they say!!
  7. Hello again So we got the assessment result. She scored 4s and 3s in all but posture and tracking. She was given 2 for these, (need to improve). The email said that we will find out about next years associate place after spring term. From what you remember do you know what is meant by tracking?

  9. Thank you. Asked DDs regular dance teacher who thought it meant to keep posture whilst moving as well as when stood. My DD did say something about keeping the knee in line with the toe and that it may be to do with that. I shall ask Dr Dance!
  10. Have already done this but as we have broken for half term we won't get to ask for two weeks. So I thought I'd try find out so we can figure out how to improve as early as possible.
  11. Hi My DD needs to improve her posture and tracking as told in a recent assessment. Not even sure what tracking means?? Anyway does anyone have any good home exercises to improve posture and tracking?
  12. Yes, we received the letter yesterday. My DD is gutted. Such a shame as it's so highly regarded and been running a long time. The training is excellent. Just got to hope she now holds on to her JA place at Northern ballet????
  13. Thank you that's very helpful. Fingers crossed she gets 3 or above then ????
  14. Hi all My DD is in her 1st associate year at Northern Ballet in Leeds and is really enjoying it. She has her assessment on the 10th Feb to see if she will keep her associate place and move to intermediates in Sept. Has anyone been through this before with their Dd's? What percentage do they tend to keep? How hard is the assessment? She also dances in York on the Louise Browne Scholarship. I think they assess them gradually. We are just hopefully she keeps one of them at least!! She loves both!
