    What do people do when dance classes clash with school?

    My DD was given permission to attend a private ballet lesson once a week in her last term of primary school in preparation for attending vocational school the following September. We timed it to coincide with PE/Games lessons so that she was not missing important academic lessons. School were very happy to authorise it. I think it was recorded as either ‘educated off site’ or ‘sporting activity’.

    YDA y11 leavers destinations

    Especially given that the year groups at YDA are quite small, around 12 students per year.

    National Youth Ballet auditions - main company

    JAs dance in one piece which is a mini ballet. It does seem expensive for the amount of stage time but it is a Summer School aswell. They are kept really busy with daily ballet class, rehearsals, other classes eg acting, Evening activities, Choreo Competition, etc. The cost covers 10 days full boarding at Elmhurst so when you work it all out, it’s actually not that bad!

    National Youth Ballet auditions - main company

    My DD has done NYB a couple of times as a JA including last year at Elmhurst. Cost of Summer School this year is £850 I think. On top of that, depending on where you live, you need to factor in: Travel/accommodation the night before Summer School. Travel/accommodation, food, etc during dress rehearsals and performances at the Crescent Theatre in Birmingham. Most stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn or Novotel which are really close to the theatre. Travel/accommodation for Sadlers Wells performance. Tickets for the shows you wish to watch. I think Crescent tickets were about £30 and Sadler’s Wells a bit more (though testing my memory now!) Mandatory purchase of an NYB leotard and T Shirt (about £30). A new pair of ballet shoes and tights/socks for each role danced. Last year we had to buy black leather split sole shoes and black ankle socks for JAs. It is not a cheap Summer School experience but my DD has loved it both times.

    YDA auditions

    As far as I am aware, YDA don’t have a set number in each year. They seem to offer to those they really want, not to fill places. The maximum in a year group is about 14 (mix of boys and girls) but can be as few as 8/9.

    What warm-ups / extras do the cool tweens wear?

    Try the Adult size P if available. My DD wore this size for her Associate class when she was 9. It was a bit big but I adjusted the shoulder straps a bit and, given that it had elastic around the cuffs and a drawstring waist, it was fine.
