  5. Brilliant news x Delighted for her and you! She’s going to have the most wonderful time x x
  6. Ballet shoes don’t fit like normal shoes though, so definitely go to the shop near to you rather than pick one online. (I’d pick the shop that has the best range of brands of ballet shoes so you have a good choice). Bloch are lovely shoes but won’t be the best shoe for everyone, and even within one brand like Bloch there are lots of different named shoes which all fit differently. Enjoy the experience of going and trying on lots of shoes. They’ll ask if you want canvas, satin or leather ballet shoes and you’ll also need to know whether you want full sole or split sole shoes, so ask your teacher what her preference is before you go as that will narrow the choice down for you too x
  7. Last year it was the same application and I’m sure the fee covered applying for either one or both x
  8. Please do XX enjoy the rest of your holiday xxx
  9. Sending love to both @Picturesinthefirelightand To you @Snowflake xxxx hope your husbands both get some answers soon xxx And fingers crossed for your lovely dd pictures, what a stressful time she must have had xx
  10. A Mid associate (of the Royal Ballet) is the next stage from JAs (junior associates) - for academic years 7-9 (then they may wish to audition for senior associates ... There are fewer places than for JAs and classes take place at fewer centres around the country, and the class tends to be a mixed year group class for years 7-9 (may be different in London?). Places are offered to children following an audition and are generally taken up if they don’t get a vocational school place of their choice or if they had chosen not to go away that age, but still wish to continue or start training weekly with the Royal Ballet School associate scheme (as although a lot of places are previous JAs, children who have not been JAs also can apply and get places on the scheme)
  11. I don’t think it’s irrelevant at all. It shows in a very rough manner, as originally highlighted by the poster, that although WL takes a large number of youngsters who have been through their training programme from an early age, either at year 7 entrance from JAs, or year 8/9/10 etc from MAs, that they do not necessarily stay for the whole time at White Lodge, and then fewer still are selected for upper school, I thought it was an interesting observation which shows how tough the training programme is as more international students (plus students from other Lower schools / different training routes etc) aim to join the Royal Ballet as they get older.
  12. Yes they do wear them but I know what you mean! I also got my dd some alternative nude pants from a dancewear shop that have a discreet waistband and has a little more bottom coverage 🙈 and she mainly wore those though - I think basically as long as they’re nude (you couldn’t wear anything else with that white leotard!! - the teacher doesn’t mind what they wear as long as she can’t see them x (I’ve just looked at them and no labels in them as they’re seamless so can’t tell you the brand I’m afraid) xx
  13. Every child bar one in my dd class has a mat, mostly in a separate bag with a shoulder strap for ease of carrying x
  14. I’m so sorry for your loss xxxxxx signed xxxx
