  1. Finally got to watch it today after all the technical issues. ROH - you are forgiven 😂 What a performance!!! Absolutely brilliant from start to finish! Loved Akane Takada - exquisite!!! Also loved Anna-Rose O’Sullivan and Marcelino Sambe - such joy and fun in their dancing - amazing! Other highlights were Don Q and Elite Syncopations!!! Fantastic!!! Just wish I’d been in the audience.
  2. I have tried on one laptop using chrome. It plays for about 30 seconds and then refuses to load. Tried a second laptop but it won’t allow me to log in as it said that I’m already logged in on too many devices....even though I’ve signed out of the original laptop. Absolutely gutted. Have been looking forward to this all week.
  3. I think most schools ask you to declare any injuries and the dates that they occurred, on their application forms from what I can remember. I even remember summer schools that my dd did asked for them too. I know that Northern Ballet School in Manchester ask for a medical form to be completed by your G.P. and sent with your application form. I’m not sure how they affect their acceptances / offers though.
  4. You may be able to connect your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable to get a bigger screen. Not sure about getting the app onto a computer though - not sure if it’s transferable to a laptop. My dd only used it on an iPad.
  5. Hi. I’m assuming this is for someone who is aged 16 +? It depends if the course is a degree course or a level 6 diploma. If it’s a degree you apply for student loans for fees and towards living costs to student finance of the country you live in. The living cost loan is higher due to living in London. If it’s a diploma course then you can get help with this through a DADA. Have only experience of degree course so not sure about the application process of a DADA other than knowing that they are awarded by the schools to the most talented applicants.
  6. AuditionIngenu 69 Posted 52 minutes ago Dear All I have just received an email from the RBS summer intensives team asking me to confirm or decline my DD's place on the RBS Summer Intensive 2020. At the end of the email it congratulates her for getting a place. Last week we received a 'wait list' place and so I was somewhat surprised by the email and delighted of course. However, I thought I had better just call the Intensive team to double check before I broke the news to my DD. They told me it is simply a computer generated email sent to everyone placed or on t
  7. Hi have no experience of vocational school degrees but I’m speaking as a parent of a child who was living away from home at University. Student Finance England, or whichever country in Great Britain you are from, will give you all the information you need. There are maintenance loans available for living costs as well as a loan to cover course fees. The assessment for this takes into account the parents’ household income and benefits in kind, and the student is awarded a maintenance loan based on these figures. Even with two reasonably good salaries coming into our home, our child qualified f
  8. If there is a Timpson’s shoe repairer nearby they should be able to fix them. I had to have a similar elastic/buckle repair done on a pair of sandals and they did a great job of fixing it.
  9. A night time open top bus tour will give you great views of the Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn. Also try Telecharge.com for show tickets - we managed to get some reasonably priced show tickets in advance of our travel. Enjoy!!

  12. We bought a Capezio size large for my dd whose waist measures 26 inches so possibly small would fit you.https://www.firstposition.com/practice-tutu.html?189=524&191=97&gclid=Cj0KCQjwrLXXBRCXARIsAIttmRMWJEdUZzBpBJJ5aq1pt_y-fjvRY97HylixKYiiVTzoq4p8b73_TNsaArWKEALw_wcB
  13. Rosina Andrews does a pirouette surgery and I think has published a book. I can’t quite work out how to add her website link but may be worth having a look at.
  14. Thank you. I will wait and see how he words the letter and take it from there. Might be worth phoning them to explain.
