    Btda intermediate exam

    The student completes a written journal alongside their practical teaching can work, the journal covers 6 areas, performance skills, technique, choreography, teaching, physiological and cultural. Although there are no set answers (as it’s the candidates own personal research and opinions) there are guidance questions for each area. The journal itself is not marked but their is a brief interview on the work presented at the end of the exam which is awarded marks

    Oh sorry to hear you are having homesick trouble, it’s heartbreaking when your child is away and upset. In my experience (I have a child at vocational Ballet school, for a few years now since year 7) it is better to leave them. I always found the more mine came home, or I went down to visit the worse they got, and only really settled when were left. So now it’s only home at exeat or half term (which works out as 3 weeks - 2 weekends at school) which is manageable on both sides - wouldn’t want to go any longer. Is your child in year 7?

    Advice on where to start with a 7 year old please

    Yes both my children did the RBS insight day, they enjoyed it very much. It is just like an associate class and good to do as an audition prep to see what is expected and what the other standard of children is like as parents can watch

    RBS Junior Associates - travel from Scotland?

    We travelled about 2 hours for 2 years every Saturday to JA’s on the train and yes it is quite nice to have a couple of hours on the train and then a day out in whichever city JAs is in. Quite missed it when it ended my child is now in full time ballet training as a result of JAs - definitely worth it good luck!
