  1. Echoing Peanuts comments, it’s so easy to get caught up in chasing every associate programme often at the detriment of ballet/family balance. In my humble opinion after 6 years on this road, the key is to find quality local training and use Easter, Summer, holiday intensives at the more prestigious schools to as a way of providing new experiences. After a few years driving the length and breadth of the country attending associates classes with 15+ students and limited teacher contact we finally found the key was in fact a top quality 1:1 weekly coaching (Ex-Tring) alongside our loc
  2. My DD was looking forward to 2 weeks at YBSS and I would gladly support any online alternative with them as she loves all YBSS events. RBS on the other hand never select her for SS so I would begrudge putting any 💰 in their well lined pockets 😂
  3. Yes, really pleased with it would recommend 👍
  4. We used Dance and Stage ballet flooring 2.5mx2m which was £150 inc delivery when we revamped my dds room last year. We have used Harelquin for ballet barres before but found the flooring over priced. Vinyl would be just as good if budget an issue but for us a great investment as my dd spend a lot of time training at home.
  5. Thank you for the update TwoDancers a real shame that they don’t just send out a generic email to all those on the reserve list. The info on the Tring website clearly says that they’re able to advise top, middle, bottom of reserve list but perhaps this is for those lucky dancers looking at multiple offers? For us it would be helpful in terms of deciding whether to put ourselves through audition next year. Playing the lottery tonight 😂
  6. I’ve read lots of chatter on the Hammond thread but all quiet on Tring. For those of us on the MDS reserve list do we just wait? I emailed the school before Easter break to try to get an idea of where we are on the list but sadly no reply. Has anyone had any feedback?
  7. My dd just loves his daily class. She’s been with him since day 1 and hasn’t missed a session. In the afternoon she picks and chooses from other dancers/company’s but thinks his class can’t be surpassed 🥰
  8. Thank you for this, always great to hear of a happy outcome 😊 I guess my concern is that these places will go to Yr7 students whereas we’re hoping for a Yr 9 place. Did you ever ask or were you ever told where your daughter was on the waiting list before being offered the place?
  9. Staying hopeful that my DD will make it off the reserve list 🤞🩰 but also wondering if its still possible to accept the original offer of a place and try to negotiate a reduction in fees? Or is the original offer of a place without funding withdrawn if you go for the MDS audition? Does anyone have experience of this?
  10. Wow Congratulations to your DD 🥳 what a relief. I’m still trying to stay hopeful for a Yr 9 place 🤞
  11. No response but still hopeful I’ll hear back even if it’s a sorry we’re not able to discuss.
  12. Thank you for this Peanut68. I’m hoping to get a response from Tring about my daughter’s place on the waiting list 🤞
  13. Huge congratulations to your daughter - wonderful 🎉🩰⭐️
  14. Congratulations! I’ve already emailed to see if they’re able to give an indication; top, middle or bottom 😂 I realise that there will be lots of movement as dancers receive offers from elsewhere but if we’re middle/bottom of the list then I guess we need to move on and decide how best to use the next year. My husband thinks the reserve list is worse than an outright no.... I’m starting to agree 😕 Also do they put everyone on the reserve list?
