  1. Not this year 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
  2. Yep. I don’t mind buying stuff that is uses but her teacher never asked them to put them on. I obviously can’t guarantee that she would never have used it but it doesn’t seem likely!
  3. My year 6 JA who started in September has NEVER worn her skirt! £40 not well spent 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
  4. She is still doing proper zoom classes with her normal teacher as well and has done some EYB ones and a couple through dance devotion. The associate classes are a supplement to her usual lessons rather than to replace them and I think it is nice that they refer specifically to some of the things that are done specifically in their JA lessons. I wasn’t expecting anything so I think it’s a bonus they have them.
  5. My daughter is really enjoying the emailed lessons and I think they have improved over the weeks. Each one has a real focus and they are clearly talking through technique and referring back to what they do in class. Obviously it’s not perfect but it’s a pretty good solution in this difficult situation.
  6. No advice but this is my daughters exact position.
  7. my daughter is pretty flat one way but not easily or over split and not flat the other side. Her box is not completely open and she is through to final auditions the splits was only one short part of the audition she said.
  8. We started with a list of general exercises that are supposed to be done 4-5 times per week. Then after a physio visit she was given a couple of personal ones to add to the list. My daughter started in year 6. The are kind of pilates style conditioning exercises and we were shown how to do them in the first lesson to make sure they are doing them right. The girls do them in their Saturday classes too.
  9. Joanne Bond or Adagio in Essex are very Ballet specific. May be too far for you though.
  10. No banana feet here and my daughter started as a JA in year 6 in September and has just been invited to the WL finals.
  11. Only final numbers on the latest one though not how many auditioned.
  12. I was assuming we would have to collect them at the end of Thursday and bring them back Friday morning. Surely they are not staying there?
  13. Yes I suppose so. She's slim but not a skinny rake but has long arms and legs.
  14. I'm a bit overwhelmed as my daughter received a yes to a final audition for WL. She was primarily auditioning for a MA place and really didn't expect to get through so she was shocked but pleased that she has the opportunity to dance again. Does anyone know anything about the finals? I noticed that it is over 2 days - is that 2 groups? How many do you think there might be? I feel a bit out of my depth as we just thought she'd give it a go and haven't even considered it as a serious option. I know some of the girls from her JA class have auditioned at other schools and we hadn't even thought about it - I'm now thinking I've maybe underestimated her! What do you think they are looking for? She is not the most flexible and says most of her JA class do gymnastics and are ultra bendy so she was a bit concerned about that. Her turnout is ok but not amazing and her feet are ok but not particularly special. When I put it like that I'm not sure what they saw!
