  1. Thank you. I've seen this clip several times and there were a few more at the RAD exhibit at the V&A. I'll report back if I find any more or get anywhere with contacting the RAD.
  2. Does anyone have the music (or possibly video?) to any of the syllabus or know where I might be able to find it? Particularly senior grade. Thanks.
  3. Kids classes started back 12th April. Adult classes could start from beginning of this week (17th May).
  4. RAD's guidance - https://www.royalacademyofdance.org/coronavirus-guidance/restrictions-in-the-uk/
  5. When we filmed exams in March, each exam had to be done in one recording and the children all got 3 extra special consideration marks for the circumstances - though they only found out on the Thursday their exam would be filmed on the Friday. Now it's no so rushed and last minute I don't know if that would still be the case.
  6. I can't help with leotards but as @Tango Dancer I make made-to-measure wrap skirts for dancers of any size (largest so far is a 50" waist) and can be made in any length and in a range of colours and patterns.

  7. Modibodi come in beige - https://www.modibodi.co.uk/collections/underpants/products/classic-bikini-light-moderate-absorbency and don't stick out my leotard (admittedly it'll depend on the cut of the leg holes). They do them in various aborbancies and they do a seam free and a thong version though I haven't tried them to recommend. Sizing is accurate - I'm usually a 10/12 in underwear and wear a 12 in Modibodi - though the elastic on the pants is tight enough I do size up to a 14 for wearing under leotards to avoid any lumpy dents.
  8. According to the goverment website they're still shut - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/opening-certain-businesses-and-venues-in-england-from-4-july-2020
  9. Medals and certificates won't be coming out until the RAD headquarters open up again.
  10. Congratulations on your exam results. I didn't mean to scare anyone, I'm very happy to hear they were scored fairly.
  11. Primary through to grade 8. Results are definitely lower - the teacher has lodged a complaint. I think their performances were affected by having the pair of us watching them instead of an examiner so it felt less like an exam to them but not enough to have impacted them that significantly. Supposedly they were marked and then had another examiner moderate the results so they should be fair. Who knows? Would it have been better to postpone? I don't know. The kids were ready and at their peak. I think dancing at home in lockdown and having to carry on with the same grade, they'd have gotten very fed up with everything. Strange times.
  12. Sorry, I don't know who the examiner was in the end. I'm only the teaching assistant so I'm getting all this info through from the teacher. Is it a good thing or a bad thing we've still got the videos so can watch them back and see how they did? Obviously none of the dancers were perfect and mistakes and things to be improved can be pointed out but normally teachers have a rough idea of how well everyone will do.
  13. Results have finally come through. Everyone did much worse than expected, especially performance wise. The girls are all great performers. Maybe it didn't shine through on the camera. None of them got a distinction and even the merits weren't all that high.
