  1. Hi! I’m not sure about closing dates or anything but I’m pretty sure that there’s a Ballet Boost in Belfast as some of my ss + insta friends go! They’re a very good program xx (Might be wrong though!)
  2. It sounds like an amazing book! I’m nearly entering upper school but I’d still love to read it 😂 (having never gone to lower school!).
  3. It’s just been announced on social media that no one could book today and so bookings open tomorrow at 2pm xx
  4. Oh right! That makes much more sense!! I know me too😂
  5. I must of dreamt it😂 I had it in my head that you booked for week 1 today and then week 2 next week and so on... Sorry! xx
  6. this is what i was wondering (as i am already booked on a summer school). i guess there is always the next booking session next week?
  7. the same thing happened here! i wonder who managed to get on?!
  8. Hi! Don’t know if this will help anyone but I’ve recently seen on Instagram that Dutch National Ballet Academy are hosting an online intensive and Royal has also announced one (with details to follow in mid-June). Hope everyone’s doing well xx
  9. I finished the series of classes recently as well, loved them! They are the perfect length and focus on a lot of different things, definitely recommend! Though I struggled with some of the long Fondu exercises 😂 xx
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. I think last year was the 8th of March (?) but I’m not certain xx
