    Elmhurst year 9

    Hello balletmum 20 .. Welcome to Elmhurst! My daughter is in current year 8. She says none of her year group are in advanced 1 as they are yet to take their intermediate exam. So my guess would be the advanced foundation class? But it's only a guess, I don't really know. It's going to be a big year group, approx 30 with the boys she thinks! Feel free to pm me if you want to x

    Swindon CAT scheme

    My Dd1 got on this scheme, she was 14.5 at the time. Unfortunately she hated it and felt ignored by her ballet teacher so I gave back her Mds place after a few weeks. She was used to being busy all Sat afternoon with classes at her normal dance school and a higher level of ballet. She didn't like all the rest breaks and felt it made the day drag on and was frankly bored. They admitted on the phone they didn't know where to put her ballet wise. Think she was too young for the highest level class from what I can remember. Luckily she was accepted at Elmhurst associates mid term so at least she got good ballet training there. Some students from there get accepted into dance colleges especially from the street dance scheme, i just wanted to share our experience.

    How long do your pointe shoes last?

    My dd1 can also kill pointe shoes in a few hours! She is 16 and non vocational but has these super bendy feet, lovely to look at but not for my wallet. She has gone through lots of Grishko's, she tried all the Gm's at Dancique but the fitter said no, not supportive enough.😑 So we came away with Russian pointe which lasted about the same as Grishko. However the shoe that has lasted the longest for my daughter is...Capezio Airess in firm or maxifirm ordered in at our local pointe fitters. Sewing in the ribbons is a challenge though as they have a suede lining. But definitely the longest lasting for her.

    Children Blocked from Dance Exams?

    How rude! 😱 I'm obviously a "super soaraway chavvy Scum" mum then as I've taken my children on the so called £10 breaks when they were younger!

    Compulsory PE in School

    When my oldest DD got to yr 10, I emailed the head and asked permission to take my DD to her dance school for a private lesson during the double PE afternoon lesson. Luckily I work from home so was able to do this. I explained she would be auditioning for dance colleges so needed the extra ballet training. To my surprise she agreed and was supportive. Other children in year 10/11 go 'off site' to the gym etc. As long as they are doing some kind of excercise although I don't think they let them drop PE lessons. My DD also has a single PE lesson, she gets out of running as she has suffered from shin splints in the past. She lets the teacher know if they are hurting and because they know she is serious about her dancing they leave her alone. She enjoys netball though!

    Hair products that work but don't irritate the scalp?

    My daughter uses Vo5 gelspray (pink bottle) at her vocational school. Also if you get a small waterspray bottle she can spray water on her hair the next day which works the gel again.

    WL auditions for 2017

    Thank you Newbiemum..She was offered Ma's but she was also offered an Elmhurst place and we took that one and she is very happy there. Once we'd made up our minds to go to Elmhurst she was so excited we put the waiting list to the back of our minds it was less stressful. Its also nearer for us which makes a big difference ????
