  1. You apply for both Spring and Summer intensives on the 1 application form. That is how it reads to me.

    Can you put insoles into ballet shoes? (not pointe)

    My dd was having pain in her heels and i put a thin round make up sponge inside to give a bit of cushioning. Seems to have done the trick.

    Swayback legs

    I have spoken to my dd teacher again about this and she said absolutely no gap between heels. She said she will call the other teacher to discuss it as she shouldn't be doing it in the other class 🙄

    How to increase "Performance" in exam syllabus?

    Well I have just asked my dd who is 9 and had to laugh, she said she imagines the examiner as a 'banana' and it always makes her smile and less self conscious!

    I have looked at the Buxton audition for my dd, she is interested in doing it but was wondering how her associate class would be with missing so many weekends?

    Any current York scholars

    Ahh ok. I thought that was what my dance teacher told a friends son. Must have heard it wrong.

    Thanks for all your thoughts and advice. One teacher is RBS and the other Elmhurst .

    Swayback legs

    My dd age 9 has swayback legs. Her Associate teacher has said she allows her a small gap between her heels in first position up to an inch. When she puts her heels together she is slightly off balance and one knee crosses over the other knee. Her regular dance teacher said she must put her heels together. Has anyone else had experience of this and which way is best? She is doing one thing in one class and a different thing in the other class at the moment.

    I think the boys Mids are London only.

    Goodbye and thanks for all the tips

    So sorry to read this. I hope your dd soon recovers and finds a new joy in her life and you are all able to look back fondly with happy dance memories. My dd is only 9 and has dreams of becoming a ballerina. Part of me hopes she changes her mind, I worry now about what may lie ahead for her.

    Questions about Upper School auditions

    Thanks NaiveDad, I enjoyed reading your post and the advice you gave. My dd is only 8 and dancing for enjoyment at the moment but I do love to hear other people's experiences and stories.

    Technique - Can it always improve?

    I feel so sad for your daughter reading this. Isn't it all about the enjoyment and pleasure of dance at this age? My dd is a bit younger but for her she loves dancing, loves the people she dances with and idolize's her fantastic teacher who encourages her every step. What area are you from? Other people on here can recommnd a dance school worthy of your daughter x
