  1. I think that sounds really sensible. If she’s taken her Grade 1 exam and has moved into Grade 2 then you might want to see if there is another grade 2 class that she can do. If she’s just moved into G2 then her teacher may be reluctant for her to join a higher grade for the moment (& prefer her to be doing both classes at the same level), but if you have a conversation with her then at least she knows your DD is keen to progress, for when the time is right. She sounds like she is at a similar level to many of the children in the associate programmes. And most associate programmes
  2. It’s not mixed everywhere. In our centre there are separate classes per year group. Between 12-18 in each maybe.
  3. Ah ok then! I think you’ll find out by mid week at the latest. And possibly may start on Saturday, or soon after, but I’m sure they’ll say to not worry about uniform etc. As someone else said, you don’t get an invoice for fees until about October half term! Fingers crossed for your DD 🤞🏼
  4. Not all centres have heard that they/if they are starting back next week. I know Birmingham is, but it’s not definite that others are. So that might explain the above!
  5. When my daughter auditioned last year she did an in class audition on a Saturday and we had an email on the Tuesday. Good luck everyone. It’s a brilliant programme. We love it.
  6. I have a feeling that it will be after the submission date for the final group!
  7. They’re done in year groups. My best advice is to not over think the administration side too much, just concentrate on helping your son/daughter to relax and enjoy the audition. The Elmhurst YD programme is amazing, and the classes are really special. I’m sure they’ll run the auditions in a similar way. If your son/daughter is relaxed then they’ll be able to follow along better! I have to try hard not to project my anxieties on to my child, and they tend to just get on with it all! Good luck with the audition!
  8. We are also in one of the regional centres. They usually run it as follows: Y4 - 9.15-10.45 Y5 - 11-12.30 Y6 - 12.45-2.15 all Ballet, no other classes (which is different to Birmingham). There is usually a Watch Week at the end of term, in all centres, I believe. It’s a gorgeous programme. Sure your children will love it! NOTE: each regional centre will have different timings but this was just to give an idea.

  10. Hi @SJBallet, which centre have you been offered a place at? Do you know which group your daughter/son is going into? I might be able to help if it’s the same one as my DD, otherwise someone else might be able to. Also, they’re really good with admin and responding to emails so if you send them an email with your question I’m sure they’ll respond ASAP. We did get an email from them on Wednesday with my DD new group on, saying that they were exceptionally busy at the moment, so that might be why 😊 Let me know if I/anyone can help with anything!
  11. Oh no!! That’s such a long time!
  12. My DD got hers last Wednesday, she took her exam about 3 days before they cancelled them. I hope you get your DDs soon!!
  13. Yes, that’s all so true. It’s such a strange time for everyone. It’s the limbo situation that has the most effect I think. Especially when we’re all used to being so busy and so ‘planned’ with our children and their interests. I hope everything works out ok for your children 🤞🏼
  14. I think it’s different in the UK, and even regionally across the UK! Really pleased you have your result. I hope you’re all keeping safe and well in the US.
  15. argh! I hope you don’t have to wait too long!!
  16. Ah that’s amazing! Well done to her 👏🏻
  17. Oh that’s also interesting - thank you! Are you in the South, Wales or NI? The results I know of so far have all been in those areas. I hope that it was good news for your DD😊
  18. Ooh interesting, do you know where you saw this? Thanks!
  19. Ah thank you 😢🙃. That makes sense. I just had a tiny ray of hope when I heard that some schools had received some results... what will be will be I guess. She could just do with a semblance of normal/what life used to be like this week 😌
  20. Morning I hope everyone is doing ok? Has anyone heard anything regarding the RAD spring exams? Some of them did go ahead (physically) before they were stopped Mid-March, and I know some ballet schools were able to submit via video. Has anyone heard whether results will be coming through at the start of May, as is usual? Or will the students receive them when life returns to ‘normal’? I fully realise that it isn’t that significant with everything happening right now, however there are some young ballerinas keen to know (!), so I wondered if anyone knew the a
  21. Ah this is beginning to look reassuring, phew! I’ve ordered 3 sizes. At this rate all my capital will be in satin ballet shoes 😂
  22. Yes, I’ve ordered some Dancewear Central, not Bloch though, everywhere I’ve checked says size 2 as smallest. I ordered those in hope, but they’re just a bit too big. Lovely material and potential though! Thank you! The quest continues 😀
  23. Thank you! I’ve ordered a choice of sizes in these ones. I’ve also ordered some Roch Valley ones. Someone suggested that the cheaper ones might be narrower. So that’s 3 pairs I have at home, 5 more pairs on order. Let’s hope one of them fits 🩰
