    Very sad news, my condolences to his family and friends.
  3. 5 pairs Russian Pointe shoes. Brava Drawstring 40 W3 V2 FM Brand new, 2 pairs in their boxes, 2 pairs in original bag of which one pair has a ring of darning around the edge of the tip. One pair with elastic and ribbons seen on and my daughters name on, but not worn. £20 a pair or £90 for all 5.
  4. Congratulations to your daughter on gaining places on both schemes. Definitely worth doing both if you can manage it in my opinion. Your daughter will gain so much, but completely different things from each programme. Also MA place at year 7 is not guaranteed so will be good to still have Tring CBA place to carry on with as I believe Tring do not (generally) assess out of the CBA. Although there are assessments at the end of each year.
  5. There are a few sellers similar to this that advertise tutus made by established tutu makers in the UK and worldwide. The tutu you receive is a poorly copied version of the tutu pictured when you order and also for a very cheap price. I’m not saying this is definitely one of these sites but be very cautious. You get what you pay for and these look very cheap to me. There are some very good honest tutu makers in the UK, you would be better off ordering from one of them. You’ll also get a much better fit if it’s made to measure and you have fittings in person.
  6. Some of the boys lived in Holland House when my daughter was at ENBS.
  7. I have some I’d be happy to send you if you’d like to pm me your address?
  8. Yes. The year my DD auditioned we had to accept Tring and Central before having other results. We forfeited a deposit at Central in the end.
  9. Just to add to my above post, one of the t-shirts is brand new in the packet and I also have a book that the 1st years were asked to buy Dance Anatomy by Jacqui Greene Haas. PM me if you are interested in it. Happy to send anything directly to the school or to QAH if needs be.
  10. I have lots of first year uniform for sale if anyone is interested? I believe they changed their supplier this year though so not sure if the leotards are any use. Includes: Pink practice tutu that’s only been worn once for a photo. 2 x Black tracksuit trousers and zip up jackets Magenta chiffon wrap skirt Lots of magenta leotards some strappy, some cap sleeved. Bloch black shrug (brand new) Couple of other black approved warm ups. Black t-shirts Pm me if interested in any of it.
  11. From others Instagram posts it’s clear that it’s Leticia Stock that is leaving.
  12. Thank you Mnemo, it was a very difficult decision for my dd to make but we are very proud of her for making this decision so maturely. I would just like to say that she is fully recovered from her injury and another lovely school has approached her about the possibilty of joining them. However she has decided not to pursue a classical career but luckily as she was an all rounder, may audition for dance/MT after her A’levels. Thank you everyone else for your best wishes, I don’t want to hijack Taxi’s thread so will say no more. If anyone wishes to talk to me about out experiences please feel free to pm me. I don’t have any criticism to throw at the school she attended.
  13. My daughter also gave up vocational training in January and also due to injury (which she has fully recovered from) and a few other issues. She has also gone back to her school 6th form to study for A’levels and is dancing locally purely for pleasure now. She’s enjoying in her own words ‘normal life’. I’d like to wish your daughter every success Curious. Taxi4ballet please wish your daughter all the best with her future endeavours and I send you my best wishes. Our daughters did know each other from their associate days.
  14. Yes she thoroughly enjoyed the audition process and was offered a funded place. However she was lucky enough to have multiple offers and chose ENBS.
  15. When my dd auditioned for 6th form last year, the emphasis for the solo at Tring was to do something that you are relaxed and confident in and can perform well. They like you to do your own choreography as it shows your creativity but it’s not a problem if you don’t. My DD is very classical but did a lyrical solo, some did ballet though. Most seemed to do modern/jazz or lyrical/contemporary.
