  1. Thanks for sharing - was that a policy just for your daughter, or an addition to include her on to your existing policy? I’m paying just under £1000 a year for the school’s policy at the mo, could do with reducing it 😳
  2. I know some incredible dancers who were never picked for JA. Talent and potential plays a huge part, but there is also an element of luck involved. Good luck everyone ☘️
  3. I managed to get a secondhand scarf, just as well as it’s spent the whole of Year 7 sitting under a yoga mat at the back of DD’s wardrobe 😆
  4. I remember my daughter coming out of her JA audition a few years ago. She was aware that ‘the lady’ was watching her for the first half an hour or so, then she stopped. I’m guessing that whatever they were looking for, they decided she didn’t have as she was never offered a place. But she went on to other associates and is now at vocational school, so a RBS no is definitely not the end. Good luck waiting for the results, I don’t miss that gut-churning email refreshing 😩
  5. There is a large car park in Richmond next to old deer park, and Rambert is a 15 minute walk from there. It’s easily accessible from 316. You can then walk across Richmond Green, across the bridge and you’re virtually there. I would avoid public transport unless you can time it for exactly when the match is on.
  6. I know two girls offered MA after attending WL finals - who were never JAs. They both however were SWL for year 6 JA so were on the RBS radar. I also know several JAs who didn’t get to WL finals or offered a MA place. I don’t think anything is ever set in stone.
  7. Ok no worries. I’m also interested in one of the ties as well as the new tracksuit.
  8. Hiya, what length are the second pair of tracksuit bottoms? Thanks x
  9. Yes, great idea, as even if you live locally you’d still have take a day off to see a weekday matinee. It was an awful mess and not easy to navigate, even though I was one of the lucky ones who managed to carry out my booking and get decent tickets. Several other parents were unable to finish the booking process as the page froze.
  10. I know someone with two spare Saturday tickets. DM me your number 👍
  11. I have overbooked two tickets for the Hammond end of year dance show - so they are up for grabs! They are for Friday 12th July at 7.30pm - pretty good seats in the centre. £15 each. They are e-tickets so I can forward them on.
  12. My daughter is 11 and started at vocational school last September. She is a lively, sociable girl and LOVES having lots of other children around. I think she would have found it hard to juggle a regular secondary school with the amount of dance hours needed to train to reach the required standard at 16. Not saying she wouldn't be committed, but having her dance and academic life all in one place means she has more 'down' time to relax with her school friends, (aka watching inane Youtube videos and shopping for anything scented or fluffy) rather than trying to cram extra hours of dance in, plus the longer vocational school holidays gives her more time with family and friends at home.
  13. Dance uniform every day, academic uniform and own clothes once a week. DD has two sweatshirts, four blouses and two skirts. XX
  14. I bought DD a plastic trug-style carrier to store and transport shower gel/shampoo into the shower. Def get a topper, some of the mattresses are a bit on the thin side!
