  2. Hi, sorry I am a novice here. I am trying to work out which vocational schools have the best success rates at getting the girls into RB Upper school, Princess Grace, ENB etc. Do the RB take from Elmhurst? Thank you so much for your help.

  4. Hi guys, DS is looking for some private lessons in North West/North Wales. He’s 11 and is feeling a bit left out. He’s had RAD classes for 3 years but finds the syllabus “boring” and wants to learn some man moves! We’ve asked his previous teacher but she can’t fit him into her schedule, which is another story! 😯 He's at the gangly age where his legs are too long for his brain and would really benefit from 1-1 time with a teacher. We are happy to travel, within reason and are looking at other ideas too like CAT schemes etc etc. Hope you guys can help. 👍👍👍 He’s really missing his classes...xx
  5. Hi guys, Hope this is ok to start but I could do with a boys thread to refer to. DS is 11, and has been dancing for nearly two years, his fave is ballet but also does tap and jazz. I’m getting a bit cheesed off at not being able to find anything for him. Bought new tap shoes today and ended up in ladies yet again!! (He’s a 4). I try to get things made when I can find and afford them. His ballet bag came from the USA and I’m so tired of googling “freed Aaron” like it’s the only leotard he’ll ever find. Can anyone point us in a direction of nice boys stuff? Good workshops, associate schemes?? He is in a nice school but still the only boy in his class and wonder if he’s missing out. We live in the NW of the UK, but will travel for the right opportunities. Thank youuuuuu! xx
  6. Morning peoples, DS is off to a ballet/dance photo shoot today and just realised it’s asked for him to have a few poses prepared. Hasn’t been dancing long and isn’t particularly flexible, any ideas welcome! 😆😆 xx
  7. hi, I'm currently 15 years old (year 10) and i'm starting to look at vocational ballet/dance schools to apply for when i'm 16. (Upper schools/6th Forms.) I'm a serious dancer, and i particularly love ballet, although do modern/jazz too. I train more or less daily alongside gym/pilates. I currently do festivals as-well and my mum coaches me for my solos (she's an ex dancer) I don't currently take any grades, but in class we've worked through the RAD advanced 2 syllabus and one of my teachers has suggested me taking the exam, so i'm around that level right now?? Anyway, I just wanted to know any info about dance schools... such as auditions, the standard, what it's like, personal experiences and also any way i can improve my training in advance for full-time training! Thank you!

  10. Hi I’m looking to buy the ISTD imperial ballet dvd for Advanced 1 & Advanced 2 and the Cecchetti DVD for Advanced 1 & Advanced 2 Ballet..if anybody has either of these to sell I would be very grateful😊
  11. Hi everyone, DD is joining some additional classes from her dance school soon and one of them is RAD Intermediate. Does anyone know how RAD’s Intermediate compares with ISTD’s Intermediate? In terms of difficulty, no. of exercises, etc. Also I believe for the RAD exam she needs soft blocks/Demi pointe shoes as well as pointe shoes. Does she not need regular flats at all? If not do they wear the soft blocks in class instead of flat? Many thanks!
  12. Hi, I am currently studying to take the last part of the IDTA Level 4 Diploma in Dance Teaching in Ballet. This is for Unit 3 and is the for the last exam where you have to teach a class in front of the examiner. I was wondering if anyone has taken this in any style and could help with a couple of questions? 1. Are we allowed to take notes into the room with some exercises written down to teach to the class? 2. Do you wait to hear from the examiner inbetween each exercise taught or is it better to carry on teaching as if you would in a class and she is mostly there to observe 3. How many exercises do you think I need to prepare for the exam and which ones? eg. plies, tendu's, set adage etc? The handbook says the examiner could ask for anything. Thanks.
  13. Hi My daughter has got 4 weeks off over Christmas so I am looking for intensives or workshops. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
  14. Are there ballet boarding schools that focus solely on Neoclassical ballet in Canada? If not, are there at least some with some focus on it? I must admit that I don't know much about ballet but I'm writing a book where a character is passionate about it, thus I'd like to know some basic things so that should it be published, the information will be realistic and accurate.
  15. How can a foreign ballet dancer join Paris Opera Ballet? Also, I'd like to know whether the repertoire of Paris Opera Ballet is mostly affected by Classical, Neoclassical or Contemporary ballet(on average at least)? Regarding the first question, I tried to search but got more confused so I thought it would be better if I asked here) (Not a ballet dancer/connoisseur. Looking for basic info for a book I'm writing. Thanks for readying)
  16. Hello! Thanks for accepting me to this forum. ☺️ I am not a ballet-dancer and don't have any experience(except basic stuff regarding some performances and styles) however I'm writing a book where the protagonist is a passionate ballet dancer and the reason I signed in this forum is the fact that I'm doing some research on ballet in order to make what's in the book seem realistic. I'd like to know beforehand whether my questions can be answered or if this is strictly a forum for ballet-dancers. (Note: Even if ballet is important in the story, it's barely involved in the main plotline but only in the past of the character and some goals he/she had made. I also don't want to spoil what happens so I might not answer some kind of questions. Most of them are related to ballet styles and ballet education, not about individual performance or technique.)
  17. Hi all - encouraged by the multiple-page review of Singapore Dance Theatre's (SDT) in October 2018's issue of Dance Europe, various folk and a current thread on Performances in the USA, I've finally decided to start a thread on layman audience reviews of SDT's performances. Brief history: SDT was started by the late Anthony Then, and Madam Goh Soo Khim (who was in the first cohort of students at the Australian Ballet School, and is the sister of the late choreographer Choo-San Goh); it has, in its repertoire, works by the likes of Balanchine, Choo-San Goh (of course), Edwaard Liang, Nils Christe, etc. I note with trepidation the Guidelines regarding making the forum a conduit for one's own blog, but it's not a good idea to paste my reviews here as they are rather detailed (read: wordy), being meant both as a record for myself and for people who missed out on the performances. Hence, I'll just leave the links to the performances reviewed by Dance Europe (October 2018). Hope they'll be of interest to someone here! https://balletbelatedetcetera.wordpress.com/2018/07/29/singapore-dance-theatres-30th-anniversary-gala-part-1-double-contrasts-and-the-configurations-pas-de-deux/ https://balletbelatedetcetera.wordpress.com/2018/07/29/singapore-dance-theatres-30th-anniversary-gala-part-2-linea-adora-and-sync/ https://balletbelatedetcetera.wordpress.com/2018/08/05/singapore-dance-theatres-30th-anniversary-gala-part-3-sync/ If there are any issues with this post, please do let me know. I have noted the Guidelines on flooding and if this post is allowed, I will only update the thread as and when there are reviews, if anyone is interested. Thank you!
  18. Hi all, DDs birthday is coming up and she’s particularly keen on a few new ballet skirts. Does anyone know of any good websites that sell nice ones? She loves the brand Bullet pointe but I’m reluctant to ship it from the USA - does anyone know where I can get those skirts in England? Thanks!
  19. For those who may be interested, Danceworks are once again running an Improvers Ballet Course for adults taught by Dmitri Gruzdev, who has formerly played leading roles in the English National Ballet and partaken in several touring works during his extensive dance career. The course is aimed at those who have attended ballet classes in the past, such as beginner or other improvers classes, and are looking to improve their level towards intermediate. Students may have attended ballet classes, a beginners course or another improvers course in the past. Each class will consist of barre and centre work, improving placement and posture, building up strength and flexibility and learning new steps. The course will run from 21st August - 9th October 2018, every Tuesday from 18:30-20:00. Minimum age is 18, open to both men and women. For more information on the course, Dmitri or to book, click here. For more on all things ballet and dance on our general website, click here. Thank you for reading, have a lovely day!
  20. I thought we'd had a related thread, but can't find it, so hey ho, I'll start a new one, prompted by the current Manon thread. Are there any ballet costumes you really covet? (Don't worry, you don't actually have to wear them!) Ones which spring to my mind instantly are: - Manon's black dress with gold embroidery in the second act of the Royal Ballet's Manon. - Empress Elisabeth's dress in the family soiree scene in Mayerling - same colour, same embroidery (I think), same designer! - Albrecht's costume in Act II of the Royal Ballet's Giselle. - The inky blue Jasper Conran tutus in Bintley's Tombeaux. - Maybe Lise's wedding outfit in La Fille Mal Gardee
  21. Hello everyone, I need advice and help in terms of my feet shape and which vamp etc will be most suitable for me. I will like to point out that I have Joint Hypermobility Syndrome and although it affects my entire body, my ankles and shoulders can sometimes dislocate if I stop strengthening everything. I have attached some photos and I look forward to hearing from you all! 😘 P.S Sorry for the low quality photos but you can still see my feet. 😀 http://s557.photobucket.com/user/pixy-dust-here/slideshow/
  22. Happy New Year to you all! The online application for MIDAS auditions for 2017 (September start) is now live again via www.midas-dance.org.uk. Students must be year 4 or above (going into year 5 in September). Pupils who are associates of the Royal Ballet School do not need to audition to join MIDAS, but due to a large demand for places all other prospective students must audition. Auditions will be held on a Sunday, towards the end of May/beginning of June. Audition dates will only be allocated after the closing date of April 30th. If you have any questions about the scheme that you cannot find the answer to via a forum search, or on the website then please feel free to PM me.
  23. Hiya guys, just wondering if I could get a bit of advice. DS is 11 in August and woke up last night crying. When I finally got to the bottom of it, it was because he doesn’t want to sleep away from home. He’s got three reaidentials in the summer, one for school, one dance and one camping. He’s a very young 11, still sits right next to you, and will always come back for a cuddle. Obvs he will have to get over this at some point but how do I make it easier for him?? His sister has been sleeping over at friends for ages so seems ok with it. He was breaking his little heart last night. 😔 Any advice??? S xx
