    Dear Mr. Taylor

    I go regularly to the British library, and everybody’s bags are checked upon entry. The BL has a similar ‘open up’ ethos in that anyone can come in and sit in the public areas etc. I think if they deem it necessary to still search everyone’s bag it would make sense to apply this at the ROH.

    RBS Statement on Ballet Competition Culture

    Totally agree. And let's hope the discussion shapes the framework for future training and recruitment of students.

    English National Ballet School Spring Intensive

    When did you apply? I got an email last week from them.
  5. I don't know how long it is. DD had wait list last year but no place came up. Email came today though saying she has a place for this year so I guess it's worth applying again even if a place doesn't come up this year.
  6. I think vocational schools in the UK do not put a similar amount of hours in from a young age, as education and balance are seen to be important in the UK. However at 16 if the schools then seek out students who have had that level of intensive training above home grown students it creates an issue.

    pointe shoe hardner HELP

    Try any/all these things to see if it helps prolong them - Alternate pairs and air them overnight to dry. Use pointe glue to harden them where she tends to break them eg if under arch then paint it on the sole of the shoe in that area Spray the inside of the sole with ellnett extra hard hairspray after use and leave to dry over night try different makes and styles of pointe shoe, until she finds the right one likely to break them quicker! also check her technique if she is ‘sinking’ into the shoe instead of pulling up out of it, as that will break them quicker

    American teen relocating to London

    Yes London is a vibrant exciting and inclusive city. Depending on how old your daughter will be when you move here either she will be at the point of applying for upper schools as others have explained, or if not yet 16 would need to find some high quality training to do in preparation for applying to upper schools. it is different in the uk as most students wanting to do this would go to a vocational ‘lower’ school from 11-16, rather than home schooling and 5-8 hours in a pre pro programme such as in the states.
