  1. Good for you. So sorry it's a no. I've had two years of no's and it will be a no again this year. I tried to discourage DD from applying- the last two years were so stressful and the lack of transparency, the constant speculation of what they are looking for and the wait is all too much. There are very few spaces already, which decreases the older your DC get that really one is looking at less than a 10% chance of getting in. I already told my one to expect a no. No expectations mean no upset.
  2. My biggest issue isn't with bullying teachers: it's with bullying parents who feel the necessity to assert themselves, further their child's interests by putting down others.
  3. Was tempted to doctor my dd photos to make her look like Margot Fonteyn! 🤣🤣🤣. Don't worry, I didn't. I think they'd quickly realise very quickly that my child bears little to no resemblance to her, other than having a head, some arms (in the wrong place) and legs (just!)
  4. That's interesting. I thought the overall winner was from Elmhurst. I recognise the name from an article. She won the Phyllis Bedells Bursary...
  5. Anyone catch this at the peacock theatre in London before it ended? Not your average dance show but it was enjoyable
  6. I was one of those on twitter commenting during the intervals in the cinema I don't know much about ballet; everything I know comes from taking my daughter to lessons but I thought the production was exceptional, the music was excellent and both Romeo and Juliet were beautiful. I love the way the cinema has made ballet accessible to all. I wouldn't necessarily have either the money nor the wherewithal to go otherwise. I can't comment on technique or shoes as I was captivated by the story and the acting. Overall absolutely stunning and a real treat
  7. Thanks. It will be Central. Doesn't appear to be much publicity about this scheme
  8. Anyone know anything about this programme? Any views?
  9. I've told my one to assume it's a no. It's so competitive and only a few spaces. No expectations mean no disappointment. Dd is happy tho. Said it was a good class.
  10. No worries... Not sure. I can post my list but probs best wait for their official announcements on Instagram or website
  11. Which number was she?
  12. Congrats to all with offers and so sorry to those who didn't this time round xxx
  13. Only one ballet group in under 10s were placed at South East. Pretty sure they made it harder this year. Only one 7-8 ballet qualified for finals. Out of goodness knows how many!
