  1. A Ballet Education have posted info about live classes on their instagram feed (though I am not sure how the time zone affects the times they are on) as well as segments of class from the last few days which may help some people. Also, for strength and conditioning (although I gather many dancers will have their own routine), there is a YouTube page called Train like a Ballerina which has great videos! Hope this helps xx
  2. Congratulations to everyone! Are these results for those that attended scholarship audition days? I was under the impression that applications don’t close until the 1st? Xx
  3. I was one of the first numbers yesterday as well and I found it a bit odd but I guess it worked for the panel! All the best to your dd xx
  4. I’ve always been taught the same as your daughter, although I’m not sure if it varies by syllabus? I started my training in Australia at a very good school and was always told that by keeping your hips square you will be using your back muscles correctly, thus strengthening them. I know that sometimes dancers twist their working hip slightly in order to raise their leg but I was always told it ruins the line. Mind you, I could be completely wrong and someone with a bit more experience may be able to advise you better! Xx
  5. I think last year was the 8th of March (?) but I’m not certain xx
  6. Thank you, that’s very helpful (though I’m really not expecting anything!). Congratulations to everyone who got a yes and best wishes to everyone with a not yet 💕 xx
  7. Hi everyone, does anybody know if just the White Lodge results are out or if Covent Garden ones are too? Xx
  8. Thank you very much meadowblythe. I’m auditioning for elmhurst, central, ballet west and btuk (I understand that the last two schools don’t wish to be spoken about publicly, but I’m not sure if it’s ok to mention the names - if not I can edit my post x). I have! I looked like I’d packed for my Duke of Edinburgh expedition all over again! But best to be prepared! My teacher has also mentioned Northern Ballet School in Manchester, but they I believe that they have slightly later audition dates and so we’ll just see how I go, especially with mocks at school, etc. Best of luck to anyone auditioning this year. I wish you the very best 💕
  9. If you want any fiction books, the Royal Ballet School Diaries (I think they are by an author called Alexandra Moss) are a wonderful set of books that follow year 7 at the school. I believe they can be ordered off amazon (which is where I got my set ) as I don’t think I’ve seen them anywhere else. They are quite short and might possibly be a tad bit easy for year 8 but they are very interesting!
  10. Hi! I’m auditioning for year 12 starting tomorrow too. It is quite quiet isn’t it? I haven’t had any yet but I’ll let you know later on if you like? Best of luck to your dd xx
  11. Thank you for answering. I did think that the wear moi was a camisole but I just wanted to double check! I think I’m going to wear that one, it’s actually my favourite leotard out of all of them (though my mum doesn’t believe that the number of colours I have in one style is justifiable!) I will, I’m actually really looking forward to it!
  12. That’s a very good idea! I’ll wear one and bring the other, I’ll have enough time after signing in anyway to change if needed, looking at the timetable of the day. Thank you very much 💕
  13. Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anyone could help me out, I have an audition tomorrow and the school requests a black camisole leotard. I have 2 black leotards with thin straps, one being a more classical camisole leotard with a small black flower detail on the front at the top (it’s not that big) from Bloch and the other leotard is a wear moi galate, which has slightly thicker straps and so I’m not sure if it counts as a camisole. I prefer the wear moi one but I was just wondering if anyone believes that it would be better to wear the Bloch one as it’s more traditional for what they are asking. Thank you x
