  1. Is the AD a member of this forum? Perhaps the Forum rules should be "No member should give details of *any* child ...." - just to make it clear?
  2. I think it's important for children to know the statistics when they go for WL/Elmhurst etc auditions. It really helps if they understand the bigger picture. A 'no' doesn't mean "you're rubbish." It means nothing more than "we saw hundreds of dancers your age, and we chose 12 that scored maybe only half a mark more than you".
  3. The pages are still jumping for me. It happens when I scroll to near the bottom of a page. The whole page jumps upwards so that the post above the final post on the page comes back into view too.
  4. Hi - I'm reading the forum on an android phone. Since the system upgrade, the pages jump around during and after loading, as if images are being loaded and the scroll isn't anchored (although images aren't loading, as far as I can tell).
  5. Crossover fallout of your editing previous posts 😂
  6. Sorry, I'm prob not understanding your question. Nobody gets MA/SA results until end of March .... it's even possible to get finals audition, then no offer, and then not an MA/SA place after that.
  7. Even if you tick both boxes, the only results coming out right now are for fulltime vocational (WL) finals. The results for MA/SA aren't until end of March, at earliest.
  8. I imagine your family's successful experiences of state education have more to do with the teachers who inspired you and your attitude to learning than they have with the fact your parents weren't paying extra for your education. If the teachers who inspire your son happen to be in a fee-paying school, then don't let the state vs private debate put you off ......
  9. Would anyone be able to help with the article's request to take ballet into Kingswood Manor Nursing Home in Liverpool ..? https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/plea-help-90-year-old-15770036.amp
  10. This article popped up in my news feed - wondered if anyone here could help (or is perhaps already involved?)? https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/plea-help-90-year-old-15770036.amp (Just to clarify, I don't know any of the people mentioned in the article .... I'm only passing it on 🙂 )
  11. Hi Motomum - Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't read the audition guidelines. Good job they obviously looked past them when they gave my daughter a final audition then 🙂
  12. Aisha - I'm just curious. Do the other students at your ballet school call them "pumps" as well? I've only ever come across the term as fashion shoes, not ballet shoes.
  13. It's okay - I didn't misread your post. It's the nature of discussions that original points get lost in the thread. Don't worry about it 🙂
  14. Balletbean, feel free to disagree! As I said above, we didn't buy any new shoes and my daughter was comfortable in her usual canvas flats. It didn't stop her from getting a final audition at White Lodge, so I don't think it's necessary to buy new for every audition.
