  1. Sorry I have only just seen this reply! The skirt s a c2 size waist 22 inches but needs the zip replacing. Congratulations to your daughter, I am sure she will be very happy at Elmhurst x
  2. A short documentary, balance (sorry don't know how to do an accent on here!), featuring Laura Purkiss of BRB is currently being shown at various film festivals and is all about balancing a ballet career and motherhood. Not sure how/if/when it will be available for general viewing but a trailer is available on the film's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/balancefilm/
  3. We also had our £100 refunded one year when dd unexpectedly got White Lodge Summer School and a lovely 'hope she enjoys it' message from Miss Porter. I do think the YBSS team works incredibly hard to secure an unprecedented level of funded places and I am so grateful that my daughter, amongst many others, has been able to access such a fabulous summer school with an amazing faculty as a result.
  4. Thank you Amos73. Is your dd going to be a junior, intermediate or senior? Mine will be senior.
  5. My daughter, who was in the second audition class, is thrilled to have received a scholarship. This will be her third year at YBSS and she just loves it!
  6. Some bursaries are also available for those unable to pay the course fees. See the following link to the YBSS fees and funding page. I personally think it is amazing that so many funded places, be it scholarships or bursaries, are on offer for this very high calibre summer school! http://www.ybss.co.uk/fees.php
  7. Sophie strikes me as an intelligent and self aware lady who has found comfort in dance. This interview really touched me. https://www.thestage.co.uk/features/interviews/2016/sophie-rebecca-its-unlikely-i-will-be-a-ballerina-but-not-because-im-transgender/
  8. Does anyone have any ladies small leotards for Elmhurst 6:1 for sale?
  9. Elmhurst, on the other hand, will take a much wider range of heights, from shorter than CDRs dd to my own at the taller end at nearly 5ft 8"!
  10. Thanks to who ever moved this - was sure I had put it in sale and wanted, that will teach me for trying to do it on my phone!
  11. I have a ladies medium Elmhurst formal skirt (years 7-10) for sale. £10 to include postage.
  12. Thanks Karen!
  13. Are the candidate/parent interviews happening for upper school auditions too? Just curious as the parent of a current year 11, I was assuming I wouldn't need to be there that day! We haven't had much information from school regarding the day itself.
  14. Have you tried scrubbing with a paste made of baking soda? This helped with a coffee stain on the heel of dd's brand new (eek!) pointe shoes. Didn't quite remove it fully on first go, but reckon a second shot would do the job.
  15. Parking on the meters in Lower Essex Street and Bromsgrove Street (as described by dancing unicorn) is free on a Sunday.
