  1. We are mulling it over. This was DDs first audition and we think her nervousness and inexperience could have been noticeable. I'm looking out for the audition insight date being announced, problem is my research has indicated they do this in October half term but in our borough the half term is the week after most other areas so it would mean a day off school for her I think. Time will tell.
  2. When you email for information they supply the schedule, that's what I received anyway. I posted the York schedule on a thread a few days ago if you look through this forum
  3. I requested the York information and this is the schedule. Its a full proper ballet and a fair commitment to make. I believe others are more spread out but there's a big chunk in the school summer hols for this one. REHEARSAL AND PERFORMANCE DATES 2019 Mon 22nd July (Casting Day and Press Photos after school) Wed 28th- Sat 31st Aug Sun 1st September (5 Days) Sat 07th Sun 08th September (2 Days) Fri 20th Sat 21st Sun 22nd September (3 Days) Thurs 26th September (in the theatre after school) Friday 27th September Dress Reh/Eve Performance. Saturday 28th September Mat & Eve Performance
  4. I will be keeping an eye on this too, I think they have been at Stockport Plaza before which would be perfect. I considered York but its just too far for us really for such a regular rehearsals. Fingers crossed.
  5. Thanks, i will keep an eye out. Do they advertise this through the RBS page?
  6. @Bluebird22 I think this could have had an impact for my DD. She is not the most outwardly confident of children, to someone new she would seem fairly quiet and reserved. I'm seeing huge changes in this as she spends more time dancing and I think she will bloom as she gets older. She was not nervous going in and loved the whole experience but I think she wouldn't have a particularly huge prescence maybe in the audition room.
  7. Just really wanting to understand how the Mid Associate auditions differ to the junior if anyone has any information. We would be looking at Manchester, I know its a bit soon (we just got DD no yesterday from JA) but I believe the applications open in September and I like to have an understanding so I can mull over the options during summer. Not sure if its something we should consider really, I know places are even more limited at this stage. Thanks
  8. Thanks everyone. She was fine, we had discussed all along that it was such a small chance of a place. Her love of ballet will continue and she's having a great time with her dancing school at the moment. We might try some workshops if we have the chance
  9. Manchester results are out and its a no for my DD I hope she isn't too disappointed when I tell her. This was for a year 6 place. Good luck to everyone still waiting xx
  10. I've certainly been twitchy all day! I'm starting to think it won't happen now but Birmingham results started late yesterday. Good luck for you DD
  11. Wow, well done Newcastle yes's 😁 I'm feeling nervous now, waiting on Manchester 😖😖😖
  12. Hi Anna, do you know if it takes a few days to receive any kind of acknowledgement? I registered but didn't receive any emails. I understand they check you haven't been before so maybe this takes a while? Thanks.
  13. Thank you everyone, this has been really useful for me. Its a bit of a unique venue really to understand. I think living in Manchester we are very lucky to see lots of touring companies here and have watched a few my first ballets plus The Nutcracker and Beauty and the Beast. I've also watched a couple of Northern Ballet performances. I was thinking a trip to London to watch the Royal Ballet at ROH would be a lovely experience but costly with the travel too. Thanks @Anna C for that link, not aware of that at all so I've registered, fingers crossed. 11th Jan would be perfect for a Christmas present I'm going to hopefully get tickets for ENB Cinderella at The Palace and also BRB Swan Lake at The Lowry. Also will look at the Northern Ballet, they have Cinderella on at the end of the year Thanks again
  14. Hi All, Not sure where this question sits but I'm sure someone will move it to the more relevant place if needed I'm wondering if anyone can help me with ROH seating. It looks like there are seats for price ranges £66, £45, £30 - this is looking at Sleeping Beauty on the 11th Jan but when I select the price range it doesn't highlight the seats in question. Can anyone tell me where abouts these seats are please? Is this because they are not on sale as yet? Also, out of the lower price categories is there anywhere that would be recommended for seating? Its for an Adult and a 10 year old. I have never set foot in the ROH so really unsure in my research!! Thanks very much ETA another question on the Royal Ballet - will they likely tour any of these productions? We are Manchester based.
  15. Wear Moi Isaline Leotard – Pacific Age 10–12 £10 Hi is this available? Could I have pictures please.
