  1. This is really interesting to read! My DD goes to 3 dance schools, all are aware she goes to the others, all are very happy that she does. I think the important bit is thinking about your reasons for needing other dance schools. For us it was an extra non-syllabus ballet class to supplement her grade work at her local school, plus a contemporary class that her local school can’t offer. We’re really happy with her local school, the teaching is exceptional, which means the 3 schools are complementing one another. My feelings are that if you’re adding classes in to make up for poor quality teachi
  2. I can’t help, but was wondering the same thing myself! I was going to look for an editing app but I have no idea where to start!
  3. That sounds thorough! I was just going to tape a bit of banana skin to her foot. 😂 Let me know how it goes.
  4. Perhaps a bit weird, but I read somewhere that banana peel was meant to help get rid of them??? My DD has one which looks even worse after using bazuka, so we might give banana peel a go.
  5. To be honest, I’d totally forgotten about this until now! But, I did look on the website info and it said it was a rough guide - check though! I’ve read so many things recently, I may have got mixed up!
  6. I’m actually not convinced that more online classes will go down that well with DD. I think she’s reached her limit for camera adjusting, glitchy screens and no room for big movements! 😂 I’ll give them a call and ask though. There’s no chance she’ll focus if she thinks it’s ‘too easy’ so I don’t want to waste my money. Xxx
  7. Are they strict about the age ranges? My 10 year old is RAD grade 4 so I’m wondering if she’d be happier doing the 11-12 group???
  8. It’s been such a difficult year in so many different ways. I had a chat with my DD yesterday about reserves and how she probably won’t hear anything. She was really level headed about it and is simply keen to audition for next year! No tears, no upset, no regret. She’s amazing!
  9. I had wondered if this might be the case. DD goes to their open classes and we’ve had similar info - signing up but with no guarantee of a spot. Thankfully DD seems to have put it all behind her and hasn’t asked about it recently so I expect she’ll keep plodding on with her other classes quite happily! I’m sorry to hear about seniors finals being cancelled. That must be a disappointing blow. X
  10. My DD is going into year 6 and is a reserve at northern for juniors as well as being a reserve for CAT. I’m not sure if they split the junior associates group at northern but hopefully if a soon to be year 6 got a RBS JA place then they might take it in preference to northern? Maybe not? The classes are on different days so some may do both. I have everything crossed for my DD but I’m not holding my breath!
  11. I heard from a friend with a DD in CAT already that current students have to accept their offers to continue next week. I‘m hoping that means there could be some movement for CAT? Plus RBS year 6 JAs got their places this week which might mean some movement for associates. All very much wishful thinking though. I’m clinging on to a vague glimmer of hope!
  12. Hi All, Now that the deadline to accept places has past, I wondered if any of the reserves had heard anything about places coming through? For both CAT and Associates. Wishful thinking? xxx
  13. Does anyone know if you can find out where you are on the reserve lists? Or is it a bit ‘wrong’ to ask?
  14. That’s AMAZING news!!!! Well done!!! I hope she’s forgotten all her worries now! Xxx
  15. Thank you! We are hopeful of hearing something in the next few months. I’m hoping that being reserve in both will mean something will open up! 🤞🤞🤞If not she’s going to be putting her energy into G4, pre-pointe and perhaps join Phoenix.
  16. Reserve for DD. She’s not taking it very well. ☹️ She’s reserve for both CAT and associates.
  17. That’s good to know. She’s taken it as a no so a place will be a nice surprise if one comes up. X
  18. She’s holding on to the hope of a yes for CAT or a place coming up on associates. Fingers crossed.
  19. Reserves for my DD. She’s disappointed but pleased it wasn’t another no. Xxx
  20. I don’t know anything about the spring pop up, but classes are all currently still on as normal and the auditions all took place yesterday. I don’t think they’ll cancel anything unless they have to. I could be wrong though. They’re very understanding and helpful so perhaps give them a quick call?
  21. Thank you! I’d forgotten about the Corn Exchange, I’ve not been there for years!
  22. Is anyone’s else’s DC doing both the associate and CAT finals on Sunday? Or anyone with past experience of doing both? I’m feeling quite apprehensive about it and how DD will manage such a long day. And what to do in the break that won’t add to her tiredness - either through walking about town or through sitting and waiting, both of which can be draining! I’m pretty sure she’ll be so excited that the tiredness won’t hit her until we get home though! But any tips would be greatly appreciated!
