  1. Probably a little early to ask this, but if anyone happens to have a spare ticket for the RBS Summer performance at ROH please let me know! Thanks!
  2. Russian classes have a huge emphasis on technique, in particular strength and developing effective use of turnout. As the classes at LRBS are non-syllabus, they also develop students’ understanding of ballet and ability to pick up exercises quickly, rather than simply doing the same set syllabus exercises each week.
  3. LRBS have Saturday classes for students aged 5 upwards!💜
  4. Further to my previous comment... I see that LRBS have announced on their social media that a boy from the school has a contract with the Plovdiv Ballet Theatre in Bulgaria, and a girl has a contract with the Georgian National Ballet- congratulations to these wonderful dancers! Hopefully this also answers your question Coniger regarding graduate destinations
  5. For Sale- RB Don Q, February 20th. Upper Slips, CC9 and CC10, £10 each. Please message me if interested
  6. These tickets are still available if anyone wants them!
  7. I can find out for you! I have a friend at the school, and from what I understand, he has a ballet class every day (6 or 7 days a week) and contemporary most days, then repertoire and rehearsals. So I imagine about 4-6 hours of ballet per day but will find out and let you know xx
  8. I know of one girl who graduated last year and is now working with the Mikhailovsky... I believe others are working in classical companies in Europe and America.
  9. Hello Stumbellina and thank you for your lovely comment! Anna and Ruth are right, this is a very old thread- I’m now teaching ballet in London and am in the process of gaining a degree in ballet education. Although leaving vocational school after working so hard to get there was a very difficult decision, it was definitely the right decision for me, as i’m now much happier (and healthier, both in body and mind!) than I was when I was trying to succeed as a ballet dancer, a career that I simply wasn’t destined for. Thankyou again for your kind words
  10. I have 2 tickets for the Two Pigeons/RBS double bill which I no longer need- 12th February- Amphi B39, £11 14th February- Upper Slips AA2, £6 Message me if interested, thank you
  11. Ahh okay, thank you! I thought it was a classical company I hadn’t heard of! Have already got tickets for the MB Swan lake though, thank you!💜
  12. Agreed! Absolutely loved Vadim in Swan Lake, but also in Bayadere with Natalia as Gamzatti. Yasmine Naghdi was also gorgeous as Gamzatti, but a dancer who has really mesmerised me this year is Akane Takada- I saw her as Giselle in 2015 (I think!) and really wasn’t so keen- but this year her Nikiya in La Bayadere was breathtaking, and her Pas de Trois variation in Swan Lake was extraordinarily musical, one of the best I’ve seen! Am definitely now a fan of her!
  13. 5. The Trocks (it was my first time seeing them and I loved it!! A perfect balance between comedy and technicality!) 4. Royal Ballet's Giselle (Osipova 😍) 3. Royal Ballet's Swan Lake 2. English National Ballet's Nutcracker 1. The Royal Ballet School in Didy Veldman's 'TooT' (performed at Holland Park and ROH)- this has to be my number 1 favourite work of 2018!! Although not a full length ballet, or indeed even a classical ballet, I just loved the concept, choreography, music..... This piece is definitely one that I'll still be thinking about this time next year!!
  14. London Russian Ballet School have full scholarships available for boys to train full-time, my best friend has just started at the School and is very happy there, feel free to PM me if you have any more questions x
  15. If the white long tutu is adult size 6-8 then I'd like it please x
  16. Yes Ruth the LRBS classes operate on a drop-in basis, although you get a slight discount if you buy a block of 10 classes
  17. Hi! So the day before my exam I met the children who would be dancing for me (I knew them but hadn’t taught them for a few years)- i taught them some exercises as a ‘practice run’ but then in my exam the examiner asked for specific things which I hadn’t already prepared- such as, I would usually do a warm up in the centre with grade 3’s but the examiner wanted a warm up at the barre
  18. The documentary is fascinating but the auto-translate is a bit dodgy!! For example in the opening scenes when the children are saying ‘Drastvoytye” (здравствуйте) the subtitles say ‘red’ when it actually means ‘hello’ 😂
  19. London Russian Ballet School have a brilliant Absolute Beginners class at 1.30pm on Sundays, I definitely recommend that
  20. Figured it out now! For anyone else struggling, the auto translate option will appear if you watch it on a laptop rather than a mobile device!
  21. Sorry to sound dumb but how do you get auto translate on YouTube? I tried to enable subtitles, but it would only let me put Russian subtitles; there wasn’t an option for English translation 😥
