  1. I went to the Núñez/muntagirov performance tonight and it was absolutely perfect. Shameless tears rolling down my face. It reminds me of what the daily hard work is all for and I wish wish wish I could dance like Nunez!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
  2. I don't know if it's the same for lower school but the results took about 7-9 days for upper school if I recall correctly! IT was in a letter x
  3. Hi all, 2 questions if anyone can answer them! 1) what do parents do at the northern ballet school audition as it takes almost all day I gather? 2) how long does it take for prelim results to come from RCS and NBS? Had a lovely audition at RCS today and my northern one on Monday! RCS just said probably within a week, but aahhh I hate the waiting game 😬
  4. Absolutely recommend the Ballet Strength pro (Rupert) based at KS dance in Warrington. I think he's brilliant and I know he has really helped a lot of dancers with injuries
  5. I'm not Scottish but as a BW associate I have friend at both DSS and Scottish ballet associates! My friend says the best thing about the associates, other than the amazing training, is getting to dance with Scottish ballet in productions such as the nutcracker. At dance school of Scotland you are not allowed to attend any external Associates but obviously you dance much more and the facilities there are first-class, with not only excellent classical ballet training but all other genres too (I've taken classes there myself and the staff were all very kind as well as good teachers.) However of course you may have to board there and miss out on a full 'traditional' academic and social childhood. Why not audition for both to get a feel of what would be right? If your home training is top quality with some summer schools, associates etc on the side, there is no reason a non-vocational won't become a dancer X
  6. Happy new year!! Can't thank you enough for all you do! Xx
  7. Thanks everyone for your replies. The minimum height for KS, and indeed for all the other vocational schools I have asked, is 5" and I am only a tiny 4" 10 ( so only two inches away). My family are feeding me up with loads of veggies and protein and calcium and ensuring I get as much sleep as possible haha! My doctor has confirmed that there is no condition stopping me growing, i just haven't hit growth yet. However, I have a good body and feet for ballet apparently which is reassuring! Im feeling a bit better about it today, and already can't wait until my associates start again next year! ❤️
  8. Hi, sorry if this is in wrong place. Just thought I'd update on auditions so far. So, first was my audition for KS dance. They were very kind, and the classes (ballet, pointe, contemporary, physio and interview) were amazing, but did not hide anything from you. I have been offered a final audition in May. They don't think that I am tall enough yet but as I am forecast to grow (delayed bone age), they said they would like to give me as big a chance as possible, because they liked my dancing. Elmhurst was a very expected no, and I've just got the result back from Central with another no. And I know I'm a very lucky and usually very happy girl, but I just feel very down-trodden. Am I just not good enough? Am I just not tall enough? It's so so hard, I am trying to use the rejections to spur me on to be a better dancer (I'm seeing a fantastic dance/strength coach who has devised a brilliant programme to help with my weaknesses) but I don't know, Just looking for some advice and happy ending anecdotes haha. 3 more (+KS final) auditions left to go! I hope other auditionees are doing well and merry Christmas everyone x
  9. Hi, I'm not expecting to get in at all, I just auditioned for the lovely class, but am interested as to whether any non-vocational students (especially girls) gain a place? I'm presuming the vast majority will be from Elmhurst or WL, with a few from other vocational schools and maybe one or two Senior Associates (I know of two girls in the Elmhurst sixth form who didn't go to vocational school but are amazing dancers, but didn't know whether it was commonplace. Thanks, and good luck everyone! My gut feeling is Thursday to hear.
  10. @DDPA I'm not doing Leeds audition, but am doing the London one which is next week Sunday, and I still haven't received the time! Your dd will love the Dance Day - I would highly recommend it to anyone!
  11. Hi! I don't have any advice but to enjoy yourself and try to focus on just improving yourself in ballet and not the attitudes or abilities of others! You will love it, starting ballet was the best thing I ever did! Good luck, and have a great time! ❤️
  12. I'm going late November, good luck! ❤️
  13. @dancefanatic i am similar to your dd but wear 12a in degas however adult 4 clothes can sometimes be too big on me, so I'm sure age 14 would be fine, and if not the Leo's don't look too hard to adjust or grow into
  14. Anyone know the RCS photo requirements? I have them on my audition document but just checking in case they are wrong! Feeling dumb!
