    Morning all! So nice to know it’s not just me frantically pressing refresh every few minutes! My money is on Tuesday for boys’ results and Wednesday for girls but I’d be happily proved wrong!

    When my older DD did London JAs there were six classes; one mixed 4/5, one girls 4/5, one boys 4/5, one mixed 6, one girls 6 and one boys 6. There were 16 children in each. I’m not sure if that’s still the same but hope that helps..... think it’ll be results next week for sure now!

    We are waiting for a boy’s result too. Think London will definitely be next week though. We got our ‘no’ on June 20th last year.

    Just thought I’d share little DS’s experiences from his audition on Tuesday. He absolutely loved it despite being very nervous beforehand. Lots of standing in various positions, stretching and pointing his toes “so hard it hurt”! Perhaps because of the lightning storm raging outside the pianist (“she was REALLY good”) played a piece of music that built up from slow to fast which the boys had to interpret as being in a storm. DS’s demonstration at home later made us all howl with laughter so who knows what the RB staff made of it! Stuff at the barre too; he couldn’t remember exactly what! He has since asked me at hourly intervals if I think he’ll get in. Who knows?! What do they do to the children in those auditions to make them love the experience so much?! DS and all the boys came out beaming! We are not looking forward to the wait at all though. Last year he got a “No” on his birthday. Fingers crossed for something different this year!

    Hope in a Ballet Shoe

    Hope in a Ballet Shoe is my DD’s favourite book ever! She got it when she was about 12 and has read it many times (as did the rest of the family!) Reading that book led us to discover First Position which is a fab film too, another favourite. We have become such big Michaela de Prince fans that we lurked outside the Coliseum after an amazing performance of Giselle last year and met her. She signed DD’s well thumbed book and was utterly sweet!

    Well, it's goodbye from me... and goodbye from her

    Good luck to your DDs Taxi and Loulabelle. Thank you for you wise words and support with so many different queries!
