  1. Yes it is excellent course run by Mary. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 its been cancelled.
  2. Central are doing some one day intensives in half term.
  3. A surprising yes for us too. Best of luck to those still waiting or on wait list.
  4. I haven’t heard yet either..
  5. Thanks so much everyone for all the great advice, very helpful. Definitely don’t want her having issues with food etc. It’s a relief to hear that it’s nothing to worry about!
  6. Dark chocolate a good idea. She doesn't eat excessively and does 16 hours of ballet/ pilates a week so her weight is perfectly fine for a normal girl her age, but she is very slightly on the heavy side for a dancer - just want to make sure she understands importance of being more careful with her chocolate/ice-cream as a result, without thinking she's fat, as she's not. Thanks all for your advice, really very helpful. I'm sure the books will do the trick!
  7. Thanks all, really appreciated - will definitely look into the suggested books and Renee McGregor. I think like Sparkly and Pixiewoo's its a case of getting the balance right and ensuring DD understands importance of healthy eating as a dancer. DD is not fat and I don't want her to feel she is, but she does love her chocolate... It is a difficult conversation, particularly when she sees other kids eat lots of sweets. Hopefully her reading from the recommended books will her understand importance of being careful with what she eats.
  8. Wondered if anyone might be able to recommend a good dietician? My DD is 13 and her body very mature for her age. She is not an ectomorph but has a more athletic body shape. We could do with some advice on how best to support her dancing with the right diet for her body shape. We're based in SW London. Any suggestions would be most appreciated! Thanks so much!
  9. Yes, very helpful, thanks so much!
  10. so happy DD got yes for week 1&2 - will be her first time at YBSS - very excited!
  11. Just got results, my DD is on the wait list. Anyone know how likely spaces open up?
  12. I recall their audition email ended with 'You will be emailed the results of your audition within 14 days' ?
  13. sadly my DD got a no too. Dancingdolally, do let me know if you hear back...I was hoping like you we'd know at least if they got a fee paying place. So happy for you Dancefanatic!
