    Just for the boys...😉

    The Wear Moi leotard built in ones are the only comfortable ones I’ve found. The 10 year old agrees. Update: have just realised (by finding a photo on the Dr Dancebelt site since none of the shops like to show the back of dance belts for some reason) that their dance belt is the same as the built in ones in their leotards. I shall be ordering one as an experiment shortly.

    All dance belts are evil. The standard issue thong ones are fine, worth checking the point where the thong meets the waistband is finished neatly, so whatever you can find in stock.

    They’re not on the schedule yet for this year. I assume they’re running them again. Once a month in Elmhurst. We combined them with adult classes and workshops for my wife or I and made a day of it, but we were flying from Dublin.

    Upcoming DVD/Blu-ray Releases

    Yes, I know the technical argument, I was just sort of hoping it didn't make enough difference to the viewing experience to be worth the extra cost.

    My Ashton Blu-ray arrived the other day and I have, sadly, concluded that it's worth paying the extra for Blu-ray. <sigh> Another money sink.

    Wear moi do some nice boys leotards and shorts. The zipped ones make a nice change and are comfortable as both I and my son can attest. Bloch do boys tap shoes in basically same sizes as the girls’ ones, so check the sizing and then order. (The girls shoes are the strapped sandal type. What the Americans call “Mary Janes”) RAD run boys associates classes one a month in some places - our 10 year old has done them in Elmhurst - that don’t require auditions and so on.
  7. I'm looking forward to the inevitable ballet version of the Lord of the Rings. There are plenty of orc, troll and goblin roles that would suit me perfectly.

    The Lady that Dances

    That's really nice work.

    Dance forward

    My wife stayed there for a week while the 10 year old did the residential RAD summer course (while she spent the week wandering around London exploring the world of drop-in classes and doing tourist things). I joined her for last few days. Cheap, moderately cheerful! The family room we got for last few days had a bath, which might be of interest to a dancer.

    Travel lodge Battersea is reasonably convenient. 15 minute walk. Wouldn’t exactly describe it as a gem, but it’s functional.
  11. I suspect that this is to counteract a drop-off in lucrative foreign applications, especially since the funding environment in the U.K. is likely to become even more difficult in the future for the same reasons I suspect that non U.K. applications are down.
  12. Yup, it's a great improvement.
  13. I have no idea: I generally view normal as some distant land from which I get the occasional report. Seems weird to me though.

    The "IGNORE" feature

    Since I've just had reason to use this I'm going to bump this thread to remind people of the option.
  15. Because it's older and therefore better?
