  1. Some good points....key one I think highlighting that evaluation & studies need to be conducted.... maybe a good topic for a dance degree thesis?
  2. Very well put Glissade.... couldn’t agree more!!
  3. Gosh - there is so much more stuff out there I knew nothing sbout!!! We definitely live in wrong part of the country!
  4. Sorry to be the uninitiated, but what is BOA please?
  5. And it’s anyones guess about bedding & towels!! Down to kids so.....?? I suspect they leave their beds till exeats when they know their parents will strip & make up bed!! I know that’s what I do.... I do think it’s a bit yuck but exeats come round every 2-3 weeks, they shower daily & frankly I’d not change bedding much sooner at home if totally honest!! Wouid like boarding to instigate a bed change though to a) give them practical life skills & b) spare me one job! Though it does kind of feel like you are still ‘looking after them’ as at home when you make their bed all nice!! Soppy mum moment.....sigh. It is hard missing them but it does get easier with time xx I bought 2 skirts/sweatshirts/ties though know only 1 of each has ever been worn.... guarantee though if I’d only got one of each something would’ve got lost with ensuing dramas & desperate phone calls home 🤣
  6. As an ex ex pat (!) I’m even more jealous!! I spent a year living in Sydney over 20 years ago now & cant believe I’m not back there permanently!
  7. Ballet all the way you say is his likely choice? Then let that guide him in priority for applications/auditions. A well trained Ballet Dancer at 18 will more easily be able to transition to a more all round dance or Contemporary or MT course or career than I suspect could ever happen in reverse....
  8. Good to hear about the Summer Intensive place coming up off waitlist (still hoping here!!) and best of luck for a MA place becoming available for your DS!
  9. I wish!! Have a lovely time! Be interesting to hear how you find staying there & costs etc... Are you a parent or teacher accompanying a dancer? My secret wish this year was to apply for DD to dance & me to do the Inspire Teacher seminars.... I didn’t as costs would not have been possible but one can dream 😌
  10. Thank you all! Now I know how to do it 😁 And am super happy with that seat position/view so just pm me bubblebuddy to liaise exchange! I believe WhatsApp must secure to pass across payment info so I shall pm my mobile no so you can find me on Whatsapp!
  11. I am intrigued by this whole proliferation of ‘Associate Schemes’..... associated to what? I get it when they are linked with schools such as RBS & Elmhurst or Ballet Companies but some seem merely to be extension to a general ballet training establishment/teacher. I am not necessarily questioning the standard of training - though would perhaps advice people do research as these do all come with perhaps higher costs attached than regular classes - but there does seem to possibly be a ‘jump on the bandwagon’ thing a little here with ever more ‘Associate’ schemes being set up...are too many dreams being built up? I am all for standards increasing & for talent to be nurtured but also for realism & value for money. Sorry if I sound a little doom & gloom folks but research & avoid ego massages!
  12. For one dorm it was Argos order for under storage boxes on wheels but for another it was the plastic 4 drawer chest!
  13. Good idea to get there on first day early to scope out room & storage to see what you could get to then add that will fit... some may have option for under storage beds or maybe a plastic chest of drawer option might be better.... there’s a cheap B&M you can zip to (or the nearby at Bache Morrison’s) to get these potentially - maybe research where they are & what they have first! Useful if car already full up with kit!!
  14. Thank you all! Now I know how to do it 😁 And am super happy with that seat position/view so just pm me bubblebuddy to liaise exchange! I believe WhatsApp must secure to pass across payment info so I shall pm my mobile no so you can find me on Whatsapp!
  15. Am struggling to find how to do this on ROH.org.... any tips what link I need? Am sure I will be happy anyway as it was as much about just being there & soaking up the atmosphere! Kind of a way of paying my respects to a dancer who more than any other influenced my passion for ballet - & that was just from photos in an old book my mum had!
