  1. We don’t even have an online profile as far as I can see.
  2. My first thought it is the new system. You no longer have a record of what you applied for and the system emails are unclear.
  3. I think it was year 9 and Mids. Today was also Years 10/11 and SAs and US and AAs.
  4. Do you know if it is going to be possible to watch the masterclasses or just the performance?
  5. No plans to enter but had thought about going to see it this year so have been waiting to see the adverts but not heard anything. They haven't updated anything on social media since last summer and I also noted that they never did announce the other winners from the partner schools and companies. I was beginning to think it wasn't going ahead until this thread started.
  6. Well @BellaF I have to admit that I was reading things into the information I had when I started this post and in the end I was right. Just a pity they announced it all quite late on in the day.
  7. @junedancer looks like you were right in thinking there would be changes. Any further insights from your contact?
  8. A pity the brief is no longer available but as you say reading between the line leads to all manner of speculation as to what possible changes might be in the planning.
  9. Does anyone know what is happening with NYB next year? I was booking a show at Sadler's Wells and noticed that there is a show in the Sundays I would have expected them to have the Gala Night.
  10. Not all those who get an RBS associates offer can do a flat froggy so this shouldn't put you off applying. DD was never able to get flat but her friend who could was having knee and hip issues which it turned out were being exacerbated by the froggies. I have been told that this is often considered a "vanity stretch" and that many of those who are in this stretch look good but may not be doing it incorrectly. It should be done with a supported body and proper alignment for any meaningful benefit. Good luck with your applications.
  11. If your DC is happy at their current school would they take up an offer (assuming it was with a new MDS award, if you need it) and move school or is it just that they want to be seen by the prospective school prior to auditioning for US ? We were advised that some schools use their summer schools to seriously look at those they would be interested in and have heard of DC being asked if they would consider applying when the time came.
  12. The RBS have changed the system they used from OpenApply which would appear to have been an in-house system for applications for vocational, associates and courses that they have used for the last few years to a web based event registration system Cvent. As a result it would appear that no-one on the old system (those who have DC in current programmes or have been on recent courses) received a system generated email. Instead everyone on the mailing list received the general applications are open e-mail Hope this makes sense?
  13. Here is the link to the rehearsal schedule. https://www.londonchildrensballet.com/files/5015/6820/3499/Rehearsal_Schedule_2020_Provisional_Schedule_FINAL.pdf It takes up virtually every Sunday for six months of the year and most of the holidays. The tour rehearsal dates will vary - I was not able to find out the dates - but these are less intensive in terms of time commitment but I have heard they are very dance intensive so worth it for the experience. Good luck to all those applying.
  14. It's a long time since I stood at the back of the stalls for opera but from memory I can't recall being able to see the surtitles.
  15. I did read something recently about the number of those who have competed in the YAGP and continued dancing as a career. It was a relatively small percentage. Sorry but I cannot find the article - maybe others on the Forum have seen it and can recall more details.
