  1. Not sure what the age groupings are but my dd is 14 and in blue group. Would be good to know the upper and lower age range for each group.
  2. Perhaps the few missing were also injured. Sadly there are always a handful of students at any point who are recovering from injury and unable to perform.
  3. What a lovely review and summary! Sadly didn’t make it to the upper school evening performance but hoping much of this is repeated on Sunday at roh. Was very impressed by the students and the work showcased at the Saturday matinee.
  4. I have one ticket for the RBS show at Holland Park Opera Friday night (tomorrow!) great seat J42 it’s £30 I will be there so can meet or hand to box office thanks
  5. Here is a pic! Pls Message me for any further info. Size Small
  6. I have one spare ticket Stalls c18 for the Royal Ballet School performance at Linbury on Wednesday 26th. Paper ticket. £20
  7. Brand new Barreto leotard adult size S. Unique all over print multi colour. Pls send me your email if you would like a photo. £24
  8. And importantly, congrats to those with a yes and swl and also to those with a not yet- Keep trying! Things can easily change in a years time. Hope the wait is over soon for the those still awaiting results, it must be agony! Fingers crossed for you all!
  9. No expert here and I’m sure some qualified person will answer better but I think it’s to check turn in? As opposed to turn out. So this one gives an overall picture of hip rotation in both directions. This is just a guess though, happy to be corrected!
  10. 1 ticket stalls K13 available for the young talent festival at Linbury theatre in ROH on June 27th 7.45pm £20
  11. I have no idea how long Leo Dixon and Joseph Sissens have been with the company but I watched both in class recently and they were astoundingly impressive, such technique and the jump height! It may take a while but I’m sure they are destined for principal and I can’t wait to enjoy their journey! Sambe and Stix Brunel also blew me away in rehearsal with Wayne Macgegor.
  12. Would love a ticket to watch class at ROH on Friday 1030 if anyone has a spare
  13. Please let me know if you have a spare ticket or 2! Thank you
  14. Hi Sarahballet I think all of the UK vocational schools have a good record of getting students in to various upper schools. It really depends on the type of dancer and what direction they want to take at 16 rather than the particular school. Some will want to stay focused on classical ballet, others more contemporary or musical theatre route. Also, there are non vocational students who are also successful in securing full time upper school places. I know that Tring, Young Dancers Academy, Elmhurst and White Lodge all send students on to train at RB and ENB. Not sure about Princess Grace? Perhaps someone else can shed light there.
  15. Freed Covent Garden will definitely custom make or alter shoes to suit. Good luck with the search!
  16. If anyone has a spare ticket to ROH Clore studio class for tomorrow morning I would love it please.
  17. WL waitlist is a very small list usually of only 5 children so huge congrats to those children and all of those who made it to finals- a huge achievement for all of them.
  18. Hi auditioningenu, sometimes children who didn’t actually tick the box for white lodge but are auditioning for Mas are invited to final audition anyway if they are identified as having the potential to become a full time student. Hope that makes sense?
  19. Pictures please tell me which brand you find don’t ladder?!! Dd is a tights destroyer! None last more than a few days 😩
  20. Hi Sunrise81, not stupid at all! It’s all very confusing when you’re new to it. You are right, all UK students at RBS lower school are entitled to MDS funding if they meet the household income criteria. I think Elmhurst is the same, (though have heard exceptions to this) and Tring have far fewer MDS places on offer so only selected candidates are invited to the funding audition. Hope this helps a little and sure others can clarify re Elmhurst.
  21. (Moderators, Hope ok to post here) Many years ago I made a box of lucky charms with a message attached for my daughter to have in her dance bag when she went off to auditions/exams and the idea caught on! They became my most popular dance product, a little token of luck seems to go a long way as I love hearing all of the wonderful success stories from my lovely customers. Here is the link to see them https://www.kirstengrace.com/product-page/box-of-lucky-charms-for-dancers-1
