  1. Yes I would definitely say go for it. The journey seems long at first but you get used to it and it is so worth it. We are lucky we can do alternate weeks with a friend who also got in. Good luck @DD_dancer and everyone who applied for chance to dance. If it is names out of a hat then I guess chances are slim!
  2. @In at the deep end I highly recommend Elmhurst, my daughter is in year 4 there and loves it! On another subject, did any other young dancers on here apply for the Royal Opera House chance to dance Easter school? I am intrigued to know what they mean by a ballot. Do they mean people vote for who gets in and if so how do they know who they are voting for if there is no audition?
  3. @BellaF yes we will also be applying for year 5 Birmingham. Last year we (on here) spent months analysing what they are looking for but it's still a mystery! Last year my DD was a very tiny August born year 4 so I'm hoping she'll have a better chance this time as she has grown loads, me and her friends mum are convinced they are stretching them at Elmhurst! 😂
  4. Just booked my DD onto the Birmingham insight day, and the audition journey begins again! Second year of trying for her. She was successful at Elmhurst though and is currently an Elmhurst young dancer. (And loving it!) We enjoyed the insight day last year (Totnes), I might be wrong but I got the impression the teachers had their eye on a couple of the kids and I'm sure they must notice the ones they want!
  5. Not long now! How exciting. I was just wondering, did you all get the excersise mats and therabands? Which strength of theraband did you get?
  6. I am expecting to have to take the waist in on the tracksuit. We always have this problem, all her leggings are age 8-9 but taken in and skirts she wears age 5-6!
  7. Oh thank you @Astrid that is really helpful! I've not had much luck with ballet shoes lately for both my kids, sizing in all brands is so different! Ive had to send so many back. My DD is 126cm so I think I'll go for the 8-10 too then or it won't fit her for long. Jazz shoes did you get the lace up or the slip ons? Shorts is it the unisex black shorts pictured on the boy? I can't see any 'Jazz shorts' on the website. Thank you!!! 😘
  8. Hi all, I guess you have all had the email with all the forms and uniform info? How exciting! Does anyone know what the leotard sizing is like? My DD is about to turn 8 and quite petite. I don't know whether to go for a 6-7 or 8-10? She currently fits a size 1 in Freed Rad leotard. Thanks. xx
  9. Understandable @Fairydust that would exhausting! Great @Astrid my DD is doing it to. 😃😃
  10. Just got the term dates through! Is anyone else doing the optional Jazz class?
  11. Does anyone know what date they start in September? Just found out my DD has a Taekwondo grading on first Saturday of September (usually they are on Sundays). Obviously Elmhurst comes first but really hoping they don't clash. I guess we will be sent some info soon about dates, cost, uniform etc. I still know nothing!
  12. There is a good chance I think as quite a few will decline a place if they get into RBS. Fingers crossed we'll be seeing you in September 🤞🤞
  13. That is fantastic news tiny! Congratulations! x
