  1. I have a pale pink 9501 I could sell on? Let me know if that's any use
  2. Finally news! Post just said that applications for next season open January 8th.
  3. Hi, Iโ€™d love to buy the Bullet Pointe skirt, sent you a PM. Thanks!
  4. Does anyone have DC attending Malvern next Easter? My DD is very keen to go but is only 9 and I'm wondering how she'll get on getting her hair into a bun each morning ๐Ÿ˜€
  5. Hoping this link works x https://www.tringpark.com/applying/audition-dates
  6. I think it might be when the audition slots fill up rather than a closing date but may be wrong.
  7. Iโ€™ve booked my daughter on the London day though will be applying for the Birmingham centre for a year 5 place. First year of auditioning for us! I have my reservations about her facility (not flat in froggy) and sheโ€™s not the typical RBS build with quite muscly legs (though skinny everywhere else). But more than one teacher has suggested she tries and I suppose you have to be in it to win it ๐Ÿ˜€ Will try for Elmhurst too and maybe Tring CBA which is a little further away.
  8. Likewise. My (9 year old) daughter had especially wanted to watch McRae so she'll be disappointed with the change.
  9. Just had an email confirming the cast change of Campbell for McRae for Coppelia 4th January.
  10. I also understand that good quality dance training can be offered in 'normal' schools. A friends DD will start next year at one (in Sydney) that incorporates dance very much into wider education and has a company that competes at a high level at Eisteddfods etc.
  11. Thank you - a couple of teachers from different schools have suggested she tries so I think weโ€™ll give it a shot. Just so disheartening that something so completely out of her control plays such a big part. Vocational school has also been mentioned so best to get the disappointment out of the way now rather than spending the next couple of years working towards something that simply wonโ€™t happen. Still a few months to get everything else nailed ahead of audition season anyway ๐Ÿ˜€
  12. Hope this ok to ask here (seeing as you all have DC who are JAs seems a good a place as any!) - how far down into froggy were your children at time of audition? It's been suggested that my DD audition next year and although she is pretty flexible she is nowhere near flat in this stretch. And I understand this to be pretty mandatory to be accepted? Trying to decide if it's worth even trying or whether we'd be setting ourselves up to fail.
  13. The Place's CAT scheme (from 11) is in London as well as Trinity Laban's one (from 13). Both contemporary based.
  14. Ah yes I had forgotten that date of exam would be included. Why not! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  15. Not that marks play a part in auditions, but when filling in application forms would you put high distinction if the last results met the new boundary? DD only took her last exam in the summer and is unlikely to take another for a good while.
  16. Thank you so much Knh - unfortunately my daughter will only be 9 but have noted down for the future!
  17. I have this exact dilemma for my DD - I've spent an age trying to find something for that week! We'll definitely be booking Malvern for the summer. Can anyone give me an idea of what level the lower age group works at? My DD will be 9.
  18. Well done for all the brilliant Manchester results!
  19. Sorry if this has already been mentioned but Force of Nature : Natalia Osipova is available on demand now.
  20. Wow what an achievement! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  21. Also waiting for August 9th - though just for grade 1 so appreciate not as important ๐Ÿ˜‰ Need to work out a strategy for managing expectations - DD is hoping for a high distinction which I know are not easy to come by. Doesn't help that jazz grades etc. are often scored more generously so, in her head, ballet results seem low in comparison. Good luck to everyone waiting!
  22. I'm aware of a place being declined so there is hope!
  23. Not for us - through a friend who had some spare ๐Ÿ™‚
  24. We had free tickets too - agree was sub par, the 'ballet' especially. Though elements were probably enjoyable to an extent for children (we took our 8 year DD). I'm a little surprised it was promoted by Sadler's Wells.
