  1. https://faq.covid19.nhs.uk/article/KA-01317/en-us As I read it app can inform you you’ve potentially been near someone with C19 (point 2) so you are aware and what to do or you definitely have (point 1) and need to isolate and will then get the isolation countdown.
  2. We’ve used AXA, had to arrange via phone call as an add on to our family yearly travel policy.
  3. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/875412/DaDA_application_assessment_flowchart_-_new_students.pdf This gives some idea of process. I can’t see the income tiers on website.
  4. From my recollection it varied year on year. We were told had Dada offer early on but waited some time to find out details of parental contribution. If you’ve been offered a Dada and are within the income bracket then it’s another frustrating waiting game.
  5. The schools manage the Dada so you need to contact the appropriate school and ask them. They are usually very approachable because understand it’s stressful for parents wanting to know their contribution.
  6. I don’t know if these are current syllabus but might be of interest to someone. Grade 6 - Female Syllabus (this was 2nd hand 11 years ago and it jumps on one exercise) Intermediate Foundation - Male & Female Syllabus My Dd took these exams in 20O9/2010 to give idea of age. Intermediate Ballet - Male/Female Dated 2010 Advanced 1 - Female syllabus Dated 2013 Dynamic 5th Pilates and Preparation for Ballet Students with Dreas Reyneke and RBS students Aimed at 16 - 19 yr old students. £15 for job lot including U.K. postage.
  7. Ballet Boost have done summer courses in past at Pineapple studios
  8. Pleased you’re not suffering from misting. Just a thought maybe you need to look at fit of glasses or mask fit at bridge of nose. Lots of workers, NHS and more are having to move around vigorously with both mask and glasses on and can’t afford to keep letting their glasses fall into their work space.
  9. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-coronavirus-restrictions-what-you-can-and-cannot-do#exercise-sport-and-physical-activity This has lots of info about what should be doing.
  10. Given option last year to bounce tickets to this years tournament or refund. Since informed that tickets won’t be eligible for this year as don’t know what the capacity and social distancing will be so now valid for 2022.
  11. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dance-and-drama-awards-income-scales/dance-and-drama-awards-income-scales-2018-to-2019-academic-year Depending on school they may have bursaries to help support living costs - do ask them
  12. Do you have the correct Northern Ballet school? Leeds don’t run a full time program but do have a summer school. Manchester have vocational training and have had summer school in past
  13. There is an Instagram account mentioned that is giving each business publicity. I had fun last night looking at lots of the Instagram accounts and what people were making/selling. There is an associated website. Notonthewestend.co.uk and Instagram is same name with links from each post to the seller.
  14. An Elmhurst reels ‘advert’ has appeared in my stories this morning.
  15. Could be but we’ve very intermittent public transport - train service from main towns but for most of us an 40 plus minute drive to a station. Local buses stopped a few decades ago and were only once or twice a week before that. I didn’t work in last lockdown so can’t compare but thought workplace car park seemed emptier at end of day.
  16. I have an hours drive to work leaving home at 6.40 am. The three days I’ve worked since this lockdown began the traffic has been as heavy as normal if not heavier. There are always a lot of freight trucks from Felixstowe but this is extra cars.
  17. We used to get hold of him via the Bloch shop in Covent Garden
  18. My Dd who currently works in retail had visions of groups of friends all arranging various click and collects from different shops whilst all meeting for a take away coffee
  19. The click and collect is an odd one. Surely it just encourages people out onto high streets to mix.
  20. Great news. They’ve hidden in the press release that Lazuli Sky is available to stream from this weekend. Something to look forward to.
  21. It’s so lovely you with your students for their first fitting. We had to trust the fitters and the dance teachers recommendation for a particular brand regardless of foot type. Once dd was confident she went with what she felt was best for her.
  22. Elmhurst rent out their facilities to help keep themselves in the black. I’m sure RBS/White Lodge are gaining financially from this arrangement.
  23. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/oct/20/teenagers-death-after-being-given-antipsychotic-was-potentially-avoidable Oliver’s poor treatment and death is still making headlines. His parent’s and family show such strength continuing to fight.
