  1. Yes its open to those with their sights in vocational- we have a mix. All dates now start from Dec!
  2. Firstly huge thanks to those in support- For those finding reason to be up in arms about this - well its quite frankly exhausting to read!!! There is a pandemic. The school welcome the funds from our rental and Didy wanted to create work for herself as much of her expertise involves travelling the world. Its really as straight forward as that!!!!!! Nothing underhand or secretive. Clearly too much time is spent overthinking and looking for the bad in everything!!! I am helping a friend launch and create a business. Mr Powney is merely h
  3. An exciting new collaboration between myself and Didy veldman. We are delighted to be offering masterclasses for Vocational students to be held at White Lodge, Richmond. We are very pleased to let you know that Chris Powney, Director of the Royal Ballet School, will be teaching our first senior class on 14th Nov and watching the juniors. As our Patron Chris will take classess periodically. Its a course to further the contemporary aspect that is so vital today. Each date runs 10am to 4pm at £90 and rotates through various added elements;
  4. Hello everyone, I totally understand this thread in the current climate and haven't read everyone's posts i must confess. But I wanted to say, as an ex dancer myself, that there is something in the very soul of a child that 'needs' to dance (this is not all of them but in a good few) i would have felt literally suffocated if I hadn't been able to pursue my passion. So whilst we can be sensible and wise, we must also be true to the spirit of the young dancer. Even if its to be shortlived - sometimes a person can only be happy if they know they tried. To be in a mainstream, safe job
  5. Thank you to those that have applied. I am delighted to announce that Chris Powney will be watching some classes!! Only a spattering of places left!!
  6. Return to Studio course run by Didy Veldman and Emma Northmore Held at the wonderful White Lodge studios Aug 29th - Sept 6th Entire course or half course options available. Aug 29th- Sept 1st/Sept 2 -6th. Email humanoove@gmail.com to book or emmanorthmore@yahoo.com for enquiries. Aimed at full time vocational students and RBS associates. (Other associates feel free to apply with pictures). This is because this course was designed originally for Royal Ballet School students and we are now permitted to allow more open bookings but spaces are limited!
  7. Hello! Yes we have ballet boost at the MAC in Belfast. I set it up for just this reason - technically auditions are closed but do still apply and I will take a look. Sometimes I then invite seniors over to the London branch too.
  8. I am discussing just my full time students. At ABA - it runs 6 days a week now with juniors and seniors
  9. @Pas de Quatre Don't misunderstand me. There is no replacement for a full course i totally agree with you. Sorry i am always in a rush so can't explain fully!! The original question was in regards to a 15 yr old so all my comments refer to working at 15 and over. I have 2 teaching qualifications, anatomy and child development!!! So coupled with yrs of dancing it's not a bad package😉 Take care
  10. @Nico Kolokythaswhat I am trying to say is, I constantly think outside the box and push boundaries. I would love to help these young dancers. Therefore I would love for you to visit my school!! Each dancer has bespoke set of work......so all issues you mention are well covered. No one has said pilates is the only way....just that I personally feel its use is tremendously helpful. Some dancers need weights, others swimming....everyone is unique. I work out a programme per individual. But this discussion was on pilates (originally!) we have zero injuries, and 100%success rate
  11. Precisely! BALLET pilates.... You can't beat many decades of proof long before anyone looked at the science behind it. I enjoy investigating it all but would prefer scientists are more open to observing professionals and what they entrust to keep their careers alive. 85% will be doing pilates daily!
  12. But Nico.....i have used this over and over again now to great success for students entering upper school......
  13. I must say well done drdance......your Facebook post asking for back up has brought many well informed people on to this forum! Nico is always great. From a dancers perspective ...... and I love the science......but irrespective of what the research says.........pilates was a godsend for me and so many of my colleagues. The focused exercises helped us as students, develop the neural pathways to each individual muscle group......therefore, when asked in a class setting to engage the lats (for example) or inner thighs......it was far easier to immediately make those connections
  14. of course pilates can change the shape of your muscles. It tones, defines and strengthens. Whilst not a scientist I am living breathing proof! I myself reshaped my body using pilates! Pilates literally gave me my career. Am I not real?!😉
  15. Everyone always gets a reply. Have they checked their spam?! We had hundreds of emails to send so possibly got bounced by the security on their computers. Ask them to email admin@balletboost.com for their result.
