    JA insight days - Leeds

    Really?! My daughter's school has always been supportive. Authorised each day she has had off for workshops, and even my school for me has (though had to take the days unpaid).

    Christmas present ideas 2018

    I had seen the Dot aswell, but this looks great. Will this be ok for DD to practice pirouettes and pointe work when she started after Xmas?

    Ballet newbie - late-starters and associates

    There is also the Cecchetti Associate scheme too, which I have been really impressed with so far in terms of the quality of teaching she has received from some fab teachers in the industry. Btw my daughter had only been dancing a year before she auditioned for the Royal Ballet Junior Associates and was accepted. They are looking for potential so it's always worth a go

    Ballet vs academics

    I have found the opposite with my DD. She is Year 5. Does between 4 and 7 hours per week of ballet as is. Royal Associate and a Cecchetti Associate this year too. All of a sudden her ballet has seen an improvement and keeps being commented by her ballet teachers, and her school work has come on loads so that now she is on top table for maths and English
  9. Photo requirements for a ten year old girl? Is it bare legs and no shoes, or socks and shoes? I'm sure it says somewhere!

    ISTD junior ballet award

    Hi Has anyone elses DC done thus before. My DD has been asked and she wanted to so we are. She is learning a dance for it, but what else should she expect to happen. Want to prepare her as this is her first competition as her dance school doesn't enter festivals so never been in this situation before.

    Moorland International Ballet Elite Programme

    My DD doesn't attend the school, but went on Sunday to the Matthew Bourne workshop and loved it. She will be thinking about auditionsnext year for Year 7 start and has always said white lodge and elmhurst. We had never considered Moorland until now so that is good to hear.
