  1. We saw this at the end of year awards ceremony. Nico is doing some very interesting work with the students across all the years. Fabulous to see the fitness work being integrated into the day to day ballet classes.
  2. Anyone get No for JA's but make Elmhurst or WL

    Interesting - the group of JAs I know were told they had to wear their ja uniform and do their hair in the ja style! Their teacher was also leading the class.
  3. Anyone get No for JA's but make Elmhurst or WL

    Ds now at Elmhurst, didn't get a Royal mids place but he never auditioned for JAs. They really do seem to be looking for different things.
  4. Elmhurst Associates/Young Dancers

    Manchester, Plymouth and Sunderland will be £10 per session from September.
  5. Elmhurst Associates/Young Dancers

    I remember them doing that once before in Sunderland, they just started a couple of weeks later.
  6. Weight Questions

    Not sure about lots of your questions but in one of Elmhurst's policies there's something in there about if your bmi is at or below 16 then you are taken off all dance - I think it relates to weight loss but even so, a bmi of between 12 and 15 sounds worrying, no matter how tiny you are height-wise.
  7. Elmhurst auditions Sept 2017 entry

    Elmhurst don't hold places for particular year groups so although there will be children leaving from y9, those spaces won't automatically go to potential y9s. The boarding is flexible so they give the spaces to whoever it is they want in any year group.
  8. First Audition for Associates Program... now the wait...

    It's a yes for my dd for the senior course, she's delighted. Well done all and hope the 'not yets' bounce back quickly. We've been on that side too and it's not nice.
  9. First Audition for Associates Program... now the wait...

    Ah, on further investigation it seems it wasn't a different exercise, it was just the other half of the one that the first group did before they left! So I don't think there was any significance to who stayed behind, it was just the luck of the draw whether you were in the first half or second.
  10. First Audition for Associates Program... now the wait...

    Just asked my dd about this. She said they did another centre exercise whilst the others went out to be collected.
  11. First Audition for Associates Program... now the wait...

    End of June? Are they sending the results by carrier pigeon?! Good luck to you too.
  12. First Audition for Associates Program... now the wait...

    My dd was there too. She has done other auditions for various things and said this was the easiest of all, they didn't ask them to do much of anything. Not sure how they will choose from the hundreds who were there!
  13. Considering giving up vocational school

    As I have pointed out to staff before when they've tried to say similar things about preparing them for the industry - these are children, not professionals, and this is a school not a company. Bullying has no place in the classroom, ever.
  14. Considering giving up vocational school

    Have pm'd you.
  15. Health Insurance for dance students

    Elmhurst use Bupa too. Physio sessions aren't limited as such but they will only agree to a block at a time and then they have to ask again.
