    Dance on Sky Arts

    21/11/18 Ed Watson South Bank Masterclasses (with an excerpt from Manon) at 6am followed by Mariinsky La Bayadere at 6:15 am.
  2. Thank you @John Mallinson @Mary @LinMM @ninamargaret for your very helpful replies. She rang the box office last night and was told her cabin size bag will be fine in the cloakroom but probably will be subject to a bag check. Many thanks!
  3. Can anyone advise of the bag situation in the cloakroom? I know this is stretching the concept of 'bag' a little but my dd is travelling to London this weekend and cannot get to where she is staying before the evening performance of Mayerling. We are wondering what to do with her small suitcase? I don't want her wandering around CG either before or especially after the performance to find a luggage storage service as this is her first time completely independently in London. Also is there still concierge service who could pre book her a taxi? TIA!

    Help With Online Shopping

    I've had this happen with other online companies too so not just a Porselli issue. We recently ordered from the Porselli sale and had no problems but I do think with sale items they can go quickly so they may not keep on top of stock. Hope you get what you're after - it's always great to get a bargain!

    Leotard advice (degas)

    They are beautiful but just a word of caution - I don't think many places stock them in the UK (Just Ballet do) and when we ordered ours (for US auditions) they (degas) were quite slow fulfilling orders. Sheila from Just Ballet was brilliant in chasing up but was a bit hair raising! Still one of her favourite leotards, perfect for auditions I would say and worth the wait but order in plenty of time if needed for a specific date!

    One last post ....

    I feel broken hearted reading both this post and your daughter's blog - she inspired my own dd hugely one summer school and we are both so very sorry she did not receive the support she so deserved. What a brave and resilient young lady she is and I know without doubt that her blog will help and support so many young dancers and encourage them to put their health, both mental and physical, above everything else. Wishing you both happiness and inner peace xx

    YBSS application 2018

    Wifi and phone signal a bit hit and miss sadly I guess due to the rural location. The only 'extras' I send with my dd are her own towels (the ones provided are perfectly adequate but she just prefers her own!) If she is planning to rinse enough tights/leotards etc, an over-radiator dryer is useful (but probably not needed if going for a week). I have sent her with snacks/tuck in the past and a little bit of spending money (groups have sometimes got together to order in pizza in the evenings and there used to be an evening trip to the local designer outlet but not for the past couple of years). They all tend to wear a black leotard for the Friday presentation too. There are no shops within walking distance so plenty of supplies such as plasters, medication such as hay fever relief and ibuprofen (age dependent I guess) that might unexpectedly be needed!

    Travel to and from vocational school

    Hi there Congrats to your dd on their Elmhurst place! There is an Elmhurst Travel Buddies closed group on Facebook which parents use to arrange lift and taxi shares, train buddies etc mostly for leave out but at other non leave out weekends also. If you know any other Elmhurst parents they can add you to the group via the admin. If not, if you want to message me I can try to do it for you. There is also a very useful buy and sell second hand uniform group too!
