    RBS Junior Associates 2018

    One of mine auditioned in Birmingham this year, I’d say she was very royal physique wise but when I’ve seen pictures of some of the new year 4s on facebook, my little student looks a good 2 years younger and although the other kids aren’t big at all (tiny skinny things) they dwarf the little girl I sent.
  2. I would say I work for a large school but class sizes vary- approx 500 students, 19 teachers, 7 studios over 4 venues. Biggest class size 20 ish smallest 2-3. Vocational grades range from classes of 3-15. Although a lot tend to stay with the same cohort all the way through, with a fair few opting out of exams around age 13 if they decide they just want to keep up classes for fun.

    Last year the boy I teach got the letter you have just described, this year he got a place. One of the girls I teach was a RBS JA got SWL for Mids in year 7 then that letter when she applied again for year 8.

    English youth ballet - Buxton audition

    Wow that is a lot! There were 52 seniors last night - but I’m sure the amount they take depends on the venue. Buxton doesn’t have a very big stage so I’m sure I remember being told previously that the cast is smaller at Buxton than our local venue in Stoke.

    Well, after a crushing no thank you this time last year, my boy student with the gorgeous legs, gorgeous feet and sparkling personality has got a yes! Please don’t be disheartened with a no and listen to your teachers that you see every week, because a panel of 4 people who see hundreds of kids over the course of a day, can’t be relied on to always make the best decisions!

    My senior got through to the scholarship part again but lost out! Second time she’s lost out and both times to brunettes!!

    I’m not sure I don’t know her personally, just something I saw on Facebook!

    My Junior has just been in touch- she has a place! Audition comprised of Ports de Bras, pirouettes, plies and leaps amongst other things!

    Where is Birmingham?!?! The wait is torture- particularly when I know one lady has heard from Birmingham!

    Dubious teacher CPD - what would you think?

    The BBO insist on child safeguarding and also there is a maximum amount of hours you can claim you have undertaken independently. I think 12hours have to be undertaken via one of the courses the BBO approve and the final 6 hours you can undertake independently.
