  1. Cecchetti international classical ballet competition 2017

    Team uk did amazing. Conquering dancing in 40* and on an unexpected raked stage ? 36 juniors and 20 seniors from 7 countries. The jury watched them do a contemporary and ballet class, then their individual solos. 3 UK students made it to the final, my Dd included, all from Elmhurst. Prizes and scholarships awarded, many to the UK ? Dont understand how someone can attend two summer intensives at the same time in different parts of the world so I'm sure some will be returned. Overall an amazing, very expensive, experience for Dd. Solos at school will not be so scary anymore ? She made some lovely new friends from all over the world. The UK ?? did us proud ?? cant wait to get home to the UK weather though ☔️ ?
  2. Reputable Dance Schools in Cornwall?

    Geraldine Lamb Dance School in Saltash and Plymouth is fantastic ! All 3 of mine attended classes there. They have just won a silver medal in the Dance School of the Year competition. RAD ballet, lots attending RBS associates at Totnes and Elmhurst associates in Plymouth. My Dd and Ds both went from there to Elmhurst. Can't recommend the support enough ?
  3. Cecchetti international classical ballet competition 2017

    Dd and I on our way to Florence via Rome. So excited ? Good luck to all the competitors ?
  4. Elmhurst pupils do have access to independent student advocates. Councilling services are available externally but these are not free. BUPA do have a dedicated Mental Health Team that pupils can access including Psychologists etc. I agree that there is still a stigma attached to mental health and not enough is being done to support our young dancers on their difficult journey. Us parents need help too sometimes ?
  5. Anyone get No for JA's but make Elmhurst or WL

    My Ds started local ballet classes at 12, auditioned unsuccessfully for lower schools and 6:1. Started SAs at 16, then got a place at Elmhurst Upper school at 17. When it's your time it will happen ?
  6. Questions about Lower School auditions

    For Elmhurst, everyone gets an audition and I requested which on was more convenient for us and was granted it. Apply early to get your choice. Good luck ?
  7. Considering giving up vocational school

    Totally agree Kat09. We are 5 years in with 3 more to go ? and 2 dc at vocational school. My heart goes out to all on the ballet rollercoaster ❤️
  8. Questions about Upper School auditions

    She is reserve for ENBS, had finals for RBS, declined Central and is staying at Elmhurst. Her brother is at Elmhurst. He was just taller than her at 16 and got a no. Went back a year later, 17 and taller, and got a yes. Since he has been there he has grown 3 more inches ? My children are just late growers unfortunately. Dd will grow next year ?
  9. Questions about Upper School auditions

    I had heard about there being a minimum height. Dd is 5ft 2 and on the reserve list ? She did feel that she was the shortest at finals !
  10. Questions about Upper School auditions

    4 of the current year 11 girls were in each group. Dd said there were a few no shows ! Now the wait ???? The very best of luck to all ????????
  11. Degas leotards

    Just Ballet ????
  12. Questions about Upper School auditions

    It's a yes for Dd ???? So excited ! By post Flora. Good luck to those waiting x
  13. Royal Ballet School SS

    Very excited that Dd has been offered a place at Covent Garden SS following her no result from finals. Unfortunately she will be unable to attend as it clashes with the Cechetti International Ballet Competition in Florence. Good luck to those on the waiting list ????????

    3 Elmhurst girls going to Florence, Billy Elliot. Excited that my Dd is one of them and I'm her chaperone ???? Sorry about your Ds ☹️
  15. Questions about Upper School auditions

    Dd thinks only 5/6 out of the 30 made it through to physio, one British girl, the rest International students. Good luck to all x
