  1. There is a session on at the RAD HQ from 17th Nov - 20th Dec. I believe the closing date is 7th Oct. Here is a link with the 2019 RAD exam sessions for the UK. https://www.royalacademyofdance.org/exams/timings-sets-and-dates/

  6. Safe Dance Practice (Edel Quin et. Al) is good for a basic coverage of dance science related topics!
  7. Grishko's long sleeved leotards are quite nice!
  8. You could try to get her sit down on the floor with her legs stretched out in front of her. Ask her to wiggle her knees. If she can manage to do it sitting she is more likely to be able to do it standing up. I have found it to be helpful, so it might be worth a try.
  9. Is it possible to have a picture of the maroon one please?
  10. I am planning a lesson that is going to consist of fun games that encourage strength, flexibility and cardio for young ballet students. Have you got any ideas or experience with games/exercises they might enjoy? Many thanks!
  11. The step travels so I like to think of the upper body (hips/waist and up) traveling forwards as well. Might sound very obvious, but it is easy to forget about it when one has several other things to remember.
  12. Also remember to bring your upper body and arms with you. I.e. turning to the right = bring your left shoulder around and keep the arms collected.
  13. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/ol/0500277397/ref=olp_tab_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new This one is lovely! It has all the classics in it and comes with a short libretto and some nice pictures from the 'famous' parts of each ballet. I.e. Rose adagio from The Sleeping Beauty!
  14. I love the Gaynor Minden ones in microfiber, however, they're quite expensive compared go other brands.
  15. It is very simple, no degree in IT needed ) Hope she finds it helpful!
  16. What details would you like to have? Type in RAD or Royal Academy of Dance to the AppStore and download it. The grades are priced the same as the DVDs I'm currently using it for teacher training and it is great!
  17. The App has got the new syllabus for Pre-Primary to G5 and the vocational grades Inter Found - Adv2 and kept the old (still running) G6-8. It is great as you can download it to a tablet or smart phone and bring it with you if needed However, I've had some trouble with a couple of the grades and it took some effort to get it to work. The app has been a great tool once it worked though !!
  18. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that AnaBallerina. I am always ready to chat with you if you would like to talk ballet with someone outside school. I believe we're friends on Facebook, so don't hesitate to message me or PM. Xx
  19. Are EEA students eligible for funding at today's date?
  20. Apologies, I haven't seen your post! Will pm you now.
  21. Any experience on how sizing works with Lulli leotards in adult sizes? I found some lovely basic leotards on Discount Dance, but have got no experience with the brand.
  22. I have used de-shanked pointe shoes for all my RAD Vocational exams. However, I've never soaked my shoes before pulling out the box or sole.
  23. Any experience with Wear Moi pointe shoes in the UK? I live in London and have been recommended the shoe, but struggle to find a place to have a fitting ..
  24. Happy birthday, BadBallerina! Hope you've had a great one
  25. Thank you so much everyone!! I've found the most beautiful dairy/notebook on etsy and will add something extra as well. Really appreciate your comments
