    Royal Ballet JA uniform

    I have an almost unused (probably 30 minutes wear in total, maybe less) character skirt and an unworn JA white leotard (size 1... I bought the wrong size and hand-washed it but it was never worn). The skirt is 58.5cm waist, 63cm long, and was made by the official RBS dressmaker. £40 for both, please.

    RAD exams at vocational school

    RAD lessons are included in MDS funding at some schools.

    Private coaching in Cecchetti ballet

    An associate scheme would prepare your DD very thoroughly for vocational auditions, especially for the school they are affiliated to. RBS and Elmhurst both have associates in Birmingham. You may well find that it would be time very well spent, even if it causes your DD to miss classes at her regular studio. There is no need to be in Grade 6 by then, they are looking for a very solid basic technique, which may be compromised by rushing through the grades.

    Travel to and from vocational school

    Congratulations to your DD! We are just north of Brighton... with such a distance, every weekend would be too much, but with a bit of lift sharing we might be able to manage more frequently than just exeats and holidays. I do agree about needing to be there for some weekends to establish friendships, though.

    Thank you! I’m just working out how to send you a PM.

    Hi, DD has just been offered a Year 7 place to start at Elmhurst in September, which is very exciting! The logistics of having a child boarding in the Midlands when we are based in the South East are really scaring me though! Are there any other families from the South East that lift share at weekends? At 11 years old I can’t imagine only bringing DD home for exeat weekends!

    We have a yes! An A4 envelope just dropped through the door. Excited, and a bit in shock!

    That would be quite quick for a postal result, but it would be lovely to know so soon! Was the audition on a Wednesday last year?

    UKA / RAD equivalent grade levels?

    Could it be Dance Sport levels ie novice etc?

    RAD Ballet - exam results for graded exams

    A lot of application forms for vocational training ask for the most recent exam results, and although the audition is certainly the decider, a strong exam result, along with other good CV items to make a dancer stand out, might be a factor in securing the attention of the panel.

    Oh gosh, how heartbreaking it would be to have an offer that just wouldn’t work! What a good job they have been up front about it! Thank you for the schedule, Ispend. It is the same as the one we have had via email, so they are sticking to the format. Just looking forward to finding out how many DC are there on Wednesday, and for how many places! Good luck for your son Wollysocks.

    A yes for DD, which is exciting and scary! Does anyone have any idea of what the day is likely to entail? Sorry to hear about the nos. It is just a not yet, as they change so much in a year at this age.
