  1. I would look at Pineapple (Emma Northmore or another Adv level teacher) if I were you. I'm sure that there are other options though. Good luck ! X
  2. You're welcome Granbatty ! It's a bit of a long watch, but I found it candid and interesting.
  3. This documentary is available to watch until the 20th June. It follows students at the Lisbon Conservatoire, from first auditions for the school until the end of year performance. https://www.bbc.com/reel/playlist/the-longshots-film-festival?vpid=p08dz0h7&ocid=ww.social.link.facebook&fbclid=IwAR0GwJm--ESunSICiJNCV4A4H_Na39aoGFMu3gAkdJ5qkVw4LdgF777BdXs
  4. I remember this too (I think it was more than a decade ago). Also wasn't Laura Morera featured ? IIRC she was a First Artist at the time - I may be wrong.
  5. Is she allowed to wear a ballet skirt over her leotard ? It would maybe disguise the pad a little. x
  6. Aimlessly scrolling through youtube yesterday I came across this documentary 'Winner takes it All' about the Russian rhythmic gymnasts. I wasn't able to watch until the end (internet problems) and haven't managed to finish watching it yet today. But from what I saw I found it interesting, eye opening and not without some significance to the demands of classical ballet training. Over the last couple of decades some have voiced the concern that ballet is turning into gymnastics. Apparently the concern is reciprocal ! Hope that this link works. x
  7. Very well said Pups_mum. I believe that this piece by Isabella Gasparini has been posted on the forum already, but it's worth sharing again. Best wishes to you all. Hold tight ! x https://www.thedancepsychologist.com/blog/2020/4/20/trust-the-road-less-travelled-my-journey-to-the-royal-ballet
  8. At around the time the Cats movie opened, two very pretty white kittens appeared in our neighbourhood. We nicknamed them Francesca and Hayward. Francesca has been keeping a low profile recently. Hayward, not so much. He has been re-named Hayward - 19 since I witnessed his, rather aggressive encounter with (our) Mummykat.
  9. I found the report interesting and appreciate the time that Liz Bouttell took to write it and The Ballet Association for publishing it, for free online.
  10. I agree. With a thick strapped/cap or long sleeved leotard, a sports bra ( without padding) is fine.
  11. I just came across this post via The Ballet Blog's FB Page and thought it may interest members of the Doing Dance Forum.
  12. Thanks. I think you're right.... x
