  1. Don’t worry, we’ll take a massive cushion! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
  2. Booked to take my ballet boy in April to Liverpool Empire. Managed to got front row seats so he can β€œwatch the feet” as he put it! We saw Bournes Cinderella there last year and it was thoroughly enjoyed, even from our seats up in the gods! πŸ˜† Roll on April!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Too skinny (age 8)

    My DS has been told he was too skinny, well actually was told he lacked upper body strength. That was at 8. He’s nearly 12 now and is filling his shape, and strong as anything. His twin sister till this year was the opposite and has slimmed down in literally 6 months as she has grown taller! Some kids are just later bloomers. I’d just give her time...πŸ‘πŸ‘

    The Hammond Boys Day of Dance Masterclasses in Chester

    Just printing our form out now, fab opportunity for the boys! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  6. Good luck! I’ve been looking for non syllabus for a while for my DS, without luck! (I’m in N.Wales). I found it in London! Useful eh? πŸ˜†πŸ˜† It seems more common as they get older, but at 10/11 it all looks syllabus based...xx

    Homesickness

    My abiding memory of starting high school is homesickness! Believe it or not it was the dog I missed most! I remember calling my parents on the 10p phone on the landing, asking them to come and get me. They did, the following day! With hindsight, I wish they’d have left me there, I missed out on so much by going home but only saw that years later...😯 Good luck to your DD...xxx
  8. I am glad to hear of some success. Hope they have an amazing time...πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Just for the boys...πŸ˜‰

    How are the boys doing? DS has mostly been starting high school lately. Back to dance this week after the summer break! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
  10. Out of curiosity, did anyone get the role?? 😯
  11. Aww no for us too, DS not too bothered about it as he always knew he was on the tall side for a part, so just went for the experience. Wouldnt it be lovely if they could have used more kids on less days, just to give them a taste of the big stage. I guess it’s down to costumes and funding at the end of the day. When I win the lotto I’ll produce a ballet with all our DC in, best go buy a ticket!πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
  12. Hi guys, yep, we are on the train back home now! Been a tiring day but DS has loved it. We even got to the M&M shop in Leicester Square he was so desperate to see!! The chap on the door said we would all know within a week, whether our DC have places or not. He also said about BRB paying for hotels for the times when rehearsals are two days together and in a Holiday Inn in London somewhere. Ballet shoes and costumes would be provided, and 4 tickets for each performance I think he said! DS was the only boy in the 2.30 class, but I saw another one going in at 3.30. If anything height will be against him but he said he had thoroughly enjoyed being a rat, rolling round scratching! πŸ˜† The other thing they’d had them doing was feigning surprise on Christmas morning. And so the waiting begins, again! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜† xx
