Edited to mention - they all really enjoyed the experience and it offered quite varied roles.

The costs seem to be slightly cheaper than EYB but other than that it seems to run on a similar format.
There were only two on the panel, sorry useless at names (Sue ? - associated with the Royal Ballet) and a dark haired lady who awarded the prizes and seemed to organise the event (said I was useless!) The teacher who took class was lovely, they actually stopped somebody in pointwork as they noticed an issue with their shoes and also there was an unwell auditionee, both cases dealt with very sympathetically
My daughter took part in seniors and there were 22 of them, the class consisted of centre work, adage, allegro and pointe work those who didnt do point took part in soft shoes.
It wasn't a difficult class but the combination of steps made it a very 'thinking' class - good experience in itself. They made it clear at the end that they couldn't take everybody - we should hear in the next day or so (what a difference email makes!)
They pulled six forward for an extra dance with a view of potential scholarship award. Seems they couldnt split it so they awarded three half scholarships. They alsoawarded two to the juniors.
Very proud to say my daughter gained one of the awards, after the year she has had a much needed confidence boost. At least we will all know what the Regional Youth Ballet is all about now!
She also auditioned in Newport for the Ballet Cymru Associates on Sunday - wont here from them until mid August. Postie beware!!!!

This is the only site I have managed to find:
The casting date is 20th October. With three performances 14th/15th December. Rehearsal schedule to follow.
I only picked up on the audition because somebody had posted on a friends Facebook site - all very random and last minute!

I am very interested in performing. I have researched Regional Youth Ballet but there is not a lot of information. Two Left Feet, how did you find out about it?
