  1. I would love to hear about any ballet based Summer Schools outside of the British Isles. My dd is starting a boarding ballet school year 7 in a few weeks but would like to take her during her time off next summer on a bit of an adventure maybe to see another vocational school outside England. Being a day pupil would be a good option but open to idea's. Thanks in advance. x
  2. My dd took part last year for BRB in the Hypadrome run. She was selected as an Elmhurst young dancer. They also selected from Birmingham ja's. The above post is for BRB when they go to London in the Royal Albert Hall. Anyone can audition for this. X
  3. My dd did both classes. Most of them tend to do both. The jazz class really works of strength and flexability. Some would say Elmhurst young dancers is a much better program than other more highly aclaimed ones. X
  4. Hi. Yes they need to apply again for secondary age associates in birmingham! But primary they keep places. 5 girls and 2 boys in birmingham young dancers are sucessful in gaining a place full time from September which I think is pretty good odds!
  5. Year 6 young dancers finish today! They come back next saturday for a rehearsal as they are dancing on Sunday afternoon with the lower school for one of the Elmhurst shows x
  6. My dd is finishing this year as off to Elmhurst full time from September in year 7. Group 2 has a range of ages from year 4 to year 7. Really lovely girls and we have loved the past 2 years going 18 sunday mornings a year. My dd says the class is quite challenging compaired to other associate/classes she does. We will truely miss Tring x
  7. Please dont worry if it was a no. I have said before my daughter was a no for years 4 5 and 6. No summer schools. She got white lodge finals. Only 53 girls taken. Of the 12 girls starting year 7 4of them were not ja's. They all look very different. My dd is off to Elmhurst which is such a blessing xx
  8. There is a taxi company based at the station. Be around £7 or £8. You can phone ahead to have a driver waiting xx
  9. Im not sure they have a reserve list. I have heard 3 girls have turned down places and they need boys for year 7 entry. But like someone else said on another thread Royal have only taken 11 girls and 11 boys this year so far.
  10. Birmingham took 2 year 6 girls to start year 7 girls ma's and one starting at White Lodge. The current year 6 have 2 classes. That leaves alot of kids without anything in year 7.
  11. Just to add one more point We met a few internationals and a few non ja girls at White Lodge finals from the 53. Boys are a very different story as so few compared to the girls.
  12. Probably I am wrong. But all im saying is with all the centre's in year 6 with sometimes 2 groups in them they select 50 ish girls for finals. Nothing is a definate.
  13. My heart broke a little every time she were a no. My dd was not bothered in the slightest. Just keep thinking of new things to do and new adventures to try!
  14. No offence to royal as they are an amazing company but 90% at a guess of ja's dont make White Lodge finals. They take who they like!
  15. Hi. Just wanted to say dont worry if you dont get in ja's. The game is not over. My dd was a no for year 4, 5 and 6 plus the easter/summer schools. No wait lists. We worked really hard. She ended up at White Lodge finals with another 52 girls. She was then in recall on the 2nd day. She did not get a place but she did get mds offers at the other 3 schools and is off to one in September!
