  1. Ribbons different colour to pointe shoes

    They do a full elastic ribbon that my dd loves as she says the feel supportive without feeling restrictive.
  2. Ribbons different colour to pointe shoes

    Russian pointe do ribbon to match their shoes. My dd wears Russian pointes & the colour difference used to drive her mad but the Russian pointe ribbons literally blend into her tights
  3. Good Luck/Audition results 2018

    As expected it was a no for us for year 8 from the Birmingham auditions. I don't think dd will be too disappointed though as she has Elmhurst finals to look forward to
  4. Good Luck/Audition results 2018

    I've no idea but we are at the start of the alphabet & haven't heard anything yet either
  5. Good Luck/Audition results 2018

    We still haven't heard from Birmingham audition 3rd class either. Have heard of others from Birmingham still awaiting results too
  6. Good Luck/Audition results 2018

    We still haven't heard from Birmingham audition yet either
  7. Good Luck/Audition results 2018

    That would make sense. At least that is the start of the results coming out. My dd auditioned at Birmingham so maybe we might hear at the start of next week Good luck to all of the dc's waiting & of course their parents
  8. Good Luck/Audition results 2018

    That's what I was thinking at the time they announced it. It doesn't give a lot of time to arrange travel
  9. Good Luck/Audition results 2018

    We were in Birmingham auditions last week & I thought they said they would get the results out within 2 weeks so I wasn't really expecting to hear anything this week. Aren't I right in thinking that the results come out in order of auditions?
  10. Online dance wear - next day delivery

    Just Ballet. I recently ordered a leotard from them next day delivery & the service was fantastic. Didn't cost much more than normal delivery either
  11. Mids audition tomorrow and DD unwell

    Glad to hear your dd enjoyed her audition yesterday. I think your dd might have been in the same one as my dd as there was a class of boys after us too
  12. Importance of Summer Schools

    It's definitely not essential so don't worry. If you are concerned about having no dance over the summer or falling behind her peers what about a couple of privates with her favourite teacher that would keep her ticking over without incurring the expense of a summer school
  13. Importance of Summer Schools

    I think Pups_mum has really covered everything but I just wanted to add that dd went to her first summer residential when she was going into year 6 and enjoyed every minute if it. It was beneficial to her in so many ways. Aside from the wonderful teaching she received it gave her so much confidence & independence. I am pretty sure Opes takes from 9 & if she's going to be 10 before the summer it might be worth giving Elmhurst a call as they accepted my dd at 10, though she was only a few months off 11 at the summer school. It was a nice one to start with because it's shorter at only 3 days though my dd did come away wishing it was longer which seemed to be the general consensus.

    Congratulations to your dd. Great to hear that the Tring letters are starting to arrive. What date did your dd audition?
  15. Compulsory PE in School

    I'm reading this thread with great interest as I have recently been chatting to dd's school about PE & the risk of injury, particularly during audition season. Under the circumstances the school have been understanding & have signed her off PE temporarily so long as I put it in writing for their records. Longer term though it is still a concern of mine & I appreciate that outside of school not every child is involved in a physical activity but dd,12, dances for 9 hours a week & using the time that she was meant to be in PE to do homework would be a huge help to her. I am thankful that she has an understanding PE teacher that has a genuine interest in dd's ballet & even came to watch her perform with EYB last year.
