  1. Good Luck/Audition results 2018

    On a positive note we can all agree that Francesca Hayward, Anna Rose and Yasmin Naghdi (to name a few) are incredible recent success stories from the WL training system and are a joy to watch. I think someone hit the nail on the head earlier regarding the education/academic balance. Many other countries worldwide prioritize studio/training hours above education so will be technically advanced by a young age. In the UK the children are fortunate enough to maintain balance. Knowing how an injury can swiftly ruin a classical career I’m all for balance! Equally, all super bright academic children who attend top tier schools will not land a coveted place at Oxbridge and will also compete on a global stage so it’s not limited to the ballet world.

  4. YDA auditions

    No doubt varies year to year depending on who they see but the year we were there I would say roughly 20 at final. Good luck 🍀
  5. Go for it! It’s a wonderful opportunity and the staff are all very friendly and encouraging. They look for passsion and can see if the child has a love of dance even in a simple audition. Brilliant experience and nothing to lose! Definitely spotting potential and not expecting mini primas aged 8, plenty of the girls were unable to do splits and many of them were offered places. Good luck and enjoy.
