  1. Thank you @2dancersmum and @ponklemum that’s really helpful. Hope you’re well, @ponklemum, we might bump into each other again in the summer?!
  2. Hello I’ve done a search to see if I can find the answer on this forum but I can’t so I hope someone can help. I am just wondering what the numerical mark boundaries are for the award categories (not sure if I am explaining this correctly!). DD has an IDTA Tap exam coming up and I believe she can be awarded (although I might be wrong): fail/pass/merit /distinction I was wondering if the marks needed for each were the same as RAD? Also, she is doing a Medal Test at the same time. Apparently the marks will be given as fail/pass/commended/highly commended/honours. Will there be a numerical mark too? And what are the numerical boundaries for this one? i hope this makes sense! Thank you ☺️
  3. There is a thread on summer schools, I’ll try and find a link to it. It’s been posted on fairly recently though so probably quite easy to find. It might be useful to you? Off the top of my head I can think of Moorlands, Malvern Ballet Seminars and Ballet Boost. They have some entry requirements not nothing too onerous I don’t think. There are lists on other websites too. I think Just Ballet has a good page.
  4. I think it means that the children in the ballot have a chance of their names being (randomly) selected (as opposed to being voted on), but i'm not 100% sure! We didn't enter DDs name as the rehearsals clash with EYB... Good luck to yours Spamcat!
  5. It’s not a problem! Happy to answer any questions we can. There are two other threads about Elmhurst and Ballet Boost that we started once we had accepted offers. They might also be useful. Ask away though. People were so helpful to me this time last year, I’m not sure where I would be without this forum!
  6. I was going to say, the BBA timetables are on their websites, helpfully! Sure someone could send you a copy of the others on this forum. We’re in the north rather unhelpfully!
  7. Where are you based? Some of the answers depend on which centre you would be going to!
  8. Ballet Boost is roughly once a fortnight.
  9. Elmhurst is every Saturday, term time only. It’s a great programme 😊
  10. Hi all We will be in London over Easter weekend. I was wondering if there were any ballet workshops/classes open to a 9 year old, that anyone knew of? I’ve found one but the younger age is 12. Also open to ideas of anything else ballet related we could do instead. We are going to a performance at the ROH whilst we are there so it would be nice to something else too... Thank you 😊
  11. @BellaF and @SJBallet my daughter was keen to go to the Malvern easter course this year. Unfortunately it clashes with the English Youth Ballet rehearsals. She will be 9 in March and so roughly the same age as your DDs I think. She’s really keen to go next Easter (although that seems ages away at the moment), so I would be keen to know if either of your DDs go, and if they’re going back the year after! A friend that we’ve made through this forum and is a similar age might also be able to go the year after too 😀 I’m not sure where either of you are in the country but my DD can recommend Moorlands Ballet Summer School too.
  12. Not as far as I know. I think you need to buy a CD. This might have changed recently though. Someone else might know more than me!
  13. There are quite a few of us on the forum with DD or DS who are Elmhurst Young Dancers, feel free to ask any questions and someone should be able to answer 😊
  14. My DD is booked onto the Easter one, Creakingstool, and will be in the younger group. In fact, she will be just 9 so probably the youngest there! She doesn’t know yet. She won’t know anyone either I don’t think.
  15. Yes, the one DD goes to is (I think so anyway!). The teacher is wonderful, friendly and talks to the children, incredibly good at teaching them in a way that they understand. They all get corrections each lesson. I was so impressed when we watched this weekend. My DD has learnt so much this term.
