  1. Pretty much everyone rents from Ballet West, there’s only a couple who haven’t plus it’s difficult to find accommodation in such a small village. As @balletbean said there’s 2 chalets and a flat in the main house. Everyone else then stays in/around the village in various houses and flats. Rent is £500/month wherever you stay. it also costs to us the washing machine and dryer!!
  2. the weeks I've been they've not really been needed, they were only worn on the Friday if wanted but totally not a necessity!
  3. it was originally supposed to run from April, however I believe they have changed it to September as there was a larger demand, with like taxi says most people finishing in July!
  4. there's that's entertainment in Liverpool.
  5. dancia currently have a Grishko offer on this week, 10% off all Grishko products and a free 'goody bag' with pointe shoes or soft blocks (ribbon, elastic and suede covers). but yes the regular price is £49.95 at dancia
  6. so danca stretch canvas ballet shoes... they are elasticated at the top so no drawstring and fairly narrow I believe!
  7. I'm doing it, so is my brother!
  8. https://dancer.com/product/cap-sleeve/ this is a link to the leotard on the gaynor minden website and there's a size chart underneath if that helps anyone?
  9. came across a clip of this video today and thought it might be a nice thing to post for anyone who hasn't seen it before. "ballet isn't a modelling business"
  10. hi, I was wondering is the initial audition just a regular ballet class?
  11. I second Thats Entertainment, I go there and they're very helpful and have a wide variety of shoes. it's also easy to get to from central train station!
  12. every day we had ballet, pas de deux, lunch, pas de deux and then jazz/contemporary. so not much that's not ballet! however one of the pas de deux was more contemporary based and then the other was classical
  13. last summer when I did it there was a fair amount of non vocational students and students who were about to start vocational school. I'm sure she would fit in and they are very understanding - I found the solo for the demonstration a bit out of my depth to learn that fast so asked to not do it and they were lovely and basically said everything's optional - it's supposed to be fun and gave me the option to do it on flat hope that helps!
  14. the first time I auditioned I got in from the reserve list and I got a letter with the acceptance pack in. I'm assuming it will still be the same although it was a few years ago! good luck!
  15. the 'fine hair nets' from boots are also good as they're big enough to go round at least twice. just thought I'd mention as they might be easier to get than the bunheads ones.
