  1. Options for an 18 year old

    This is a very busy time for KS Dance at the moment but I’m sure if you contact the office, take class at the London audition and ask for constructive feedback from Miss Simmons or whoever takes class you will feel more able to make informed decisions for September. Good luck and enjoy
  2. RBS Summer School

    Have they asked the children already at WL yet, as they use to get first refusal.
  3. Standards or Level 5. Remember the intake birthdays are different aswell so a child born in October in England will be one of the eldest in the year and in Scotland probably one of the younger ones in their year.
  4. Central Audition for 2018 Entry

    Ring them it’s only a short course I’m sure they will understand the issue I think I’ve paid once before submitting forms.
  5. RAD vocational classes Crewe area

    KS is Chechetti, if you really want RAD syllabus classes email RAD HQ and they will give you qualified Dance school details in the area you are staying in.
  6. Life after a dada award

    Your daughters journey so far is unique to her so I think you may need to research and add up her qualifications and UCAS points. As far as I’m aware a degree is a degree even if it’s only in dance performance.
  7. Swiss Ball

    You could message scienceindance.com which is run by Mr Rupert Wiltshire MSc he is a strength and conditioning coach for KS Dance and several other ballet dancers aswell as atheletes. If you explain what your daughter uses a Swiss ball for he will advise, if not your daughter could follow him on Instagram he is theballetstrengthpro and he will answer any questions she wants to ask on there. He is busy at the moment with KS open days but very helpful hope this helps
  8. Good Lunches in Covent Garden

    Paul’s - suits every occasion - my favourite since the 80s
  9. Under leotard - what's good for a child?

    Research body stockings in child’s extra small they should come with see through straps and spaghetti some mums get white cotton leotards and dye them flesh colour with Tea but that depends on the type of costume they are to go underneath and can make a child hot
  10. Anybody heard of Ajkun Ballet Theatre

    It's not just what you post, it's who you follow and who follows you that guides the advertisers. So even if you're private you will be fed the type of posts you should like in their opinion
  11. Make up for ballet Upper School auditions

    Mnemo I am so with you
  12. Make up for ballet Upper School auditions

    It's all about confidence in herself so whatever she thinks she would like to try she needs to get started practising now, wear it for classes now, so she has confidence that her mascara won't run with sweat, she won't lick her lips etc. I think it's like her hair and ribbons she does it so she is happy and confident in herself
  13. How much (if anything) should I be doing?

    It's finding a balance - her wanting it enough to do the research and get pro active and you supporting her, which I know you do I laughed out loud recently on here when a mum was clearly filling in her daughters application forms for her and was wondering how to answer do I want to go to ENB as it's in London my dd said no, as for her it meant a horrible tube journey But of course I thought its location as being positive as it would mean no rent to pay may be the open days might inspire her good luck
  14. Genee 2017

    As the competition is held in September the teacher for UK students might have only met the dancer that term as they arrive for the new year. Also with the RAD changing the Majors syllabus and changing the ages for the exams although my DD did an exam each year she waited to do the new Advanced 2 RAD so was 16 in the September following that. If that makes sense
  15. What is 'Technique'?

    Some teachers are so great in the way they articulate themselves that you can see their teaching coming through their students technique, hard to explain but other mums or teachers and choreographers might understand what I'm trying to say.
