    Ballet School of Armida (Moscow)

    Hi! I did a quick Google search in Russian and found that they have a FB page and website: http://www.facebook.com/armidaballet http://marelenia.wixsite.com/armida Sorry I don't know anything else about them. Good luck!

    Summer School in Brussels?

    Just an update to the above - it seems that the Conservatoire de la Danse also do a 2-week summer programme, but this is usually announced quite late.

    Summer School in Brussels?

    My friend's 9-year-old daughter attends the Conservatoire de la Danse full-time in Brussels and although they don't appear to have a summer school as such, they appear to have open classes that might be worth looking into x https://www.conservatoiredeladanse.com/cours-ouverts-classiques.html

    London Children’s Ballet: Ballet Shoes

    Sorry to read about the nos, particularly those that tried again! My DD didn't get past the 2nd audition last year, but got to Finals and waiting list for the touring company this year. In the meantime we've signed up for the Auditions Masterclass with Fiona Chadwick so that's lovely to look forward to!

    Secondary school recommendations

    Ah thank you Marianne, it looks like a really good school. It’s a shame that they’re fully non-selective though as we would be completely out of the catchment area. I love their links to the RAD x

    Secondary school recommendations

    Thank for the St Marylebone tip - I will have a look. I wasn’t sure whether to include YDA or Moorland (as someone mentioned earlier) so I guess we can even make it 6! Shame that there aren’t many alternatives, however someone at Friern Barnet hinted that they weren’t the only school in London that offered the EAP and after an extensive search I still wasn’t able to find out which they were!

    Secondary school recommendations

    Hi everyone! Aside from the 5 vocational ballet schools across the country, I was wondering if anyone might know of any good state secondary schools that do dance (or at least those that support it!). Preferably around West London. I was thinking something along the lines that are similar to the Friern Barnet school that have an Extended Arts Programme. Unfortunately they are too far for us. Thank you!

    EYB Swan Lake Wimbledon 2018

    What an amazingly show! Lots of hard work put into it - well done!!
  10. Hi! Yes it’s just called The London Ballet Company School :)
  11. Hi everyone! My DD has just completed The London Ballet Company summer intensive for the second year now, and has been reaccepted as TLBC Associate from September as well so just wanted to give a huge shout out to the Director, Sophie and her team who have just been amazing! The Associates run once a month on Sundays in Battersea and it’s an excellent addition to existing ballet training to get the creative juices flowing and for anyone who is interested in contemporary ballet. Another one of their amazing features is YoBallet which focusses on strengthening the core and using all the right muscles. They also have a school in Wimbledon that is worth checking out (although we don’t currently attend as it quite a distance for us) but what’s different about them is that they don’t follow any strict syllabus and work by strengthening and stretching the right muscles and correcting posture to get the best results. Just had to post as it’s been a little secret of my DD for a while now and she comes out beaming after every session :) The facilities are of an excellent standard too and since I ran a search and couldn’t find any posts on them so I thought I’d get the word out there.

    English youth ballet - dvd entry

    Hi! My DD did Coppelia earlier this year with EYB and we missed the audition day so Miss Lewis also asked for us to send a DVD. We heard back with an acceptance after 10 days. We just sent in a 1 min solo on DVD by post xx
