  1. Thanks @Colman We’ve decided to leave it for this year, but will definitely look at it for next year. Thanks for all the replies.
  2. Yes @Colman that is an idea, but the cost difference between day & residential is considerable, so it would be rather a waste if we ended up doing that! 😂
  3. Thanks @Tiredtoes ! It’s such a tricky one, I’m sure she would enjoy the social aspect, but it’s just a shame they’re not accommodated in rooms with others, as single en-suite rooms seems rather grown up!
  4. Thanks very much for the replies. We could commute daily from where we live, but it would be a very early start for her each day. From these replies, I’m leaning towards thinking she’s a bit young. She’s a JA, and next year we can apply for the RB summer school, although I realise it will be competitive to get in, so perhaps we could look at this for next year as another option.
  5. I was just wondering if anyone’s child has done the RAD summer school before (and done the residential)? We’ve been offered a cancellation for my daughter, who’s just turned 9, and has just taken her grade 2 RAD. It’s a lot of money, but I think she would enjoy it (she was keen when we looked before, then found it was fully booked), but my only concern is that 9 is quite young for the residential aspect, but on the other hand, I can see they would get most of out of it socially by staying. Would appreciate any experience anyone may have on this.
  6. Hi, can anyone advise if children have to audition for the RB summer school? My daughter was too young for this year, but we can apply next year. She’s a JA (year 4) if that makes any difference. I can only see information on their website about applications, nothing about auditions. I did the RB summer school when I was 10, and we had to audition back then!
  7. Ah, how lovely! My daughter will be attending classes in London anyway, but sounds like she will love the workshops!
  8. Thanks, will take a look. Perhaps the one we have will actually be ok after all. Can I ask what you mean by workshops?
  9. Apologies if this is in the wrong topic, I’m quite new to this forum! I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a nice dance bag for my daughter, who starts JAs this term. I’d ordered one from Katz, which arrived this morning, but it’s gigantic, and looks ridiculous on her shoulder. Our local dance shop doesn’t have anything suitable, but I’m struggling online, as often measurements are not given. Ideally she’d like a shoulder bag, with a few pockets, big enough to fit in a character skirt, plus the usual ballet bits and bobs. Many thanks!
  10. Thanks, I was hoping they wouldn’t be compulsory. Don’t want her distracted by a knicker leg!
  11. Thanks @Balletmum55! I think she’d rather not wear anything under the leotard, but I can understand if they prefer the girls do. We’ll start with the ones we have and see how we go!
  12. Thanks @Balletmum55! Just another question while I’ve got you, do the girls actually wear those special knickers under their leotard? We ordered them, but my dd thinks they’ll be uncomfortable!
