    Ballet shoes for wide feet

    Yep, had our first pair of hanami for DS and they fit lovely on his tootsies! His are a size 4 and they stretch to fit my size 5 feet too, so hoping theyโ€™ll last longer than standard canvas. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    What I mean is they say on the box label โ€œladies tap shoesโ€. He is an astute 11 year old and wants to know why he has to wear ladies! ๐Ÿ˜ I have actually got some lovely ones from eBay second hand, so heโ€™s in luck this year...๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Thanks ladies. I will look into all those ideas. I just feel sorry for him sometimes. Weโ€™re on the mailing list for the project B events, and I have briefly been in touch with KS dance last year, as itโ€™s not a million miles away, (I trained there till 19!). Like I say his current school is nice but I think he will outgrow it in a few years. DS auditioned for Hammond FT last year but missed out as he was lacking in upper body strength and some technique. Sure heโ€™ll have another bash next year tho and maybe try associates. (The solo was a nightmare, and he doesnโ€™t do singing! ๐Ÿ˜‚). Does anyone do the CAT scheme? Just wondering if we can justify the drive! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ xx

    Hi guys, Hope this is ok to start but I could do with a boys thread to refer to. DS is 11, and has been dancing for nearly two years, his fave is ballet but also does tap and jazz. Iโ€™m getting a bit cheesed off at not being able to find anything for him. Bought new tap shoes today and ended up in ladies yet again!! (Heโ€™s a 4). I try to get things made when I can find and afford them. His ballet bag came from the USA and Iโ€™m so tired of googling โ€œfreed Aaronโ€ like itโ€™s the only leotard heโ€™ll ever find. Can anyone point us in a direction of nice boys stuff? Good workshops, associate schemes?? He is in a nice school but still the only boy in his class and wonder if heโ€™s missing out. We live in the NW of the UK, but will travel for the right opportunities. Thank youuuuuu! xx

    What after junior associate auditions??

    We are in North Wales and prepared to travel for the right opportunities. (Thereโ€™s not much here!) DS did audition for Hammond associates but didnโ€™t get in. Weโ€™ve looked at the CAT in Manchester but just canโ€™t commit to two days due to work commitments. DS did a few boys days this year but think heโ€™d like it to be a bit more regularly. Thank you for all these ideas tho, Iโ€™ll keep thinking! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Summer School

    Where is this please? Does it take place in termtime? Have a 11 year old DS who may be interested depending on cost/logistics. Thanks, xx
  11. Hi peeps, DS is still absolutely in love with ballet but turns 11 in August. Hence he is now too old for the junior associate stuff. Am I missing something or is there a gap? Obvs I know about RBS mids but that would be unlikely. What else can he get involved in? Heโ€™s taking every class in his little school. Heโ€™d love to join some more dancing boys of his age. Any ideas?? xx

    Awww, yes I believe they are short on boys. DS was invited to audition after the boys masterclass but then we got snowed in on the audition day!! (Live up a mountain!) Had a chat with the lady who runs it hence him being there Sunday just gone. Just waiting to hear if he can go back in September now. Hope he can, it would make his year! ๐Ÿ˜Š How old is your DS then? Sammi is 10, 11 in August so going into year 7 in September at big school. Hopefully the transition will be a smooth one. He can be quite shy till he gets to know people. I asked him where he sat for lunch and he said on a table on his own. Wasnโ€™t phased by it tho, heโ€™s used to being on his own in classes of girls! Love our dancing boys...๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• S xx

    Hopefully, I did have the leaflet here somewhere, buried under pile of assorted crap! S xx
