    Buying ballet shoes for boys.

    Capezio Hanami’s from the Capezio shop. 100% recommended by my professional (at last ! Yay) dancer DS. Other dancers often ask him where he got them. And pre-sewn elastics (double Yay). Dancia are a great shop too if the Capezios aren’t liked for any reason.
  2. The quote from Christopher Powney was from a dancing times interview before he joined the school. Hopefully now he has met many more British students in person at the school, he may have had his mind changed? Matthew Ball’s father wrote a brilliant letter printed in Dancing Times as a response. I can’t find it now ... I have a DS who graduated last year from RBS Upper School, and I personally know of zero British students resting on their laurels at RBS or other schools. The reverse actually, as they’re usually playing catchup with international students, who’ve often been homeschooled for years to concentrate on their dancing (rightly or wrongly).
  3. Men usually seem to be 5’10” minimum for a lot of European corps

    Overseas summer schools 2019

    The teachers speak English, I believe, and the woman who runs it is bi-lingual. But good chance for DD to practice her French (at the shops, for example)?
