  1. Are you saying then most if not all who go onto upper school are students who joined later eg y10?
  2. Also I saw on their website a few weeks ago that enbs are not going to require an initial video this year to select for prelims.
  3. Enbs cancelled their non residential intensive on Friday
  4. I got a pair from dancia by post at end of March - the brighton shop I think
  5. As finals are cancelled this year instead there is a virtual scholarship round for those invited to finals. RBS are one of the partner schools listed on the scholarship form finalists have to fill out as part of the virtual scholarship process. They haven't attended YAGP finals for a few years but it appears that was changing this year, until CV-19 prevented the finals taking place in New York. Yes, it seems to be the case DD Driver.
  6. Definitely would recommend Princess Grace in Monaco also. DD spent two weeks boarding there this summer, exceptional training.
  7. SA results for London are out, yes for DD. Well done to all who have a yes for associates and those who got SWL. xx
  8. Last year they were on the first Monday (i.e. next Monday) of the easter holidays - they posted them on the Friday, second class. Good luck to all waiting.
  9. Yda doesn’t have an upper school so there is the fact that a child doing associates with royal may be thinking of future vocational training connections and opportunities once they have graduated. On a personal level DD was offered full mds last year at one of the big vocational schools but decided to stay and train at Yda.

If a child at Yda is an associate at royal they do those classes instead of Saturday morning classes with Yda not as well as. I think if a child auditions for royal associates and gets a place then they are deserving of that place, they will have been given the place on merit. Many things about the ballet world may not seem fair but ultimately it is a competitive world and if your child is training for a potential career in classical dance you ha
  11. The year my dd did funding audition only people taken to physio were offered mds places initially. However some of these turned them down as they got offers elsewhere and they subsequently offered mds to people on the reserve list who hadn’t all seen physio. Good luck to all waiting.
  12. It sounds like what you are talking about is an associate class. So JAs is the junior associate class for royal ballet school, central have an associate scheme, as do Yda and Tring (their associate scheme is called CBA classical ballet academy). There is also London junior ballet on a Sunday at Artsed in Chiswick. Associate schemes will be more than just a class, they will be comprised of a ballet class but also some kind of body conditioning and learning some rep even. As such they tend to be 2/3 hours long. All of them will require your daughter to audition but royal is accepted to be the
  13. You could try sanding it down with sandpaper - my dd has done this before if jet glue has left uneven surface
