  1. But many people are a Ltd company instead of being self-employed. The main reason for paying a directors minimum salary and dividends is often that earnings fluctuate, so they can't be sure at the start of the financial year what they'll earn. You pay corporation and dividend tax on that money, which is a pretty similar level to PAYE income tax and NI.
  2. My DDs first audition result that wasn't a rejection was a reserve list, then eventually an offer of place. She worked so hard that she ended up with a prize at the end! No-one would ever have known she came in off the reserves. She's just had an audition success, after several rejections (last rejection was from a final round audition too) which was a lovely surprise. She knows the drill with auditions well though as her dad is a musician and has had a lot of rejections in the last couple of years, but also a fairly recent success too!
  3. My DD is super excited as she has just been offered a place for London 3B. We submitted her video right at the last minute, as she didn't want to send it because she was *certain* it wasn't good enough.
  4. I think the difference for Cambridge is that the main teaching is done in one-to-one or small group tutorials, which are lower risk and they seem to expect these to resume in the autumn. Doing the large-scale lectures online will not make such a big difference to their students - particularly humanities/language students. It also means all their planning effort can go into making other parts of the courses workable.
  5. Late to the party but I agree that Katz satin split soles are narrow, and come in small sizes. My then-9-yr-old DD wore some last year for EYB.
  6. Our ballet school have recently moved over to ruched leotards for exam uniform for grades 4+; they're RAD approved ones with the logo.
  7. My DD did Cinderella in Hollywood in Oxford last year too. She was 9 but is tiny, so was in the group of the smallest girls with mostly 8 year olds, which in Oxford was a group of 8 girls. I'm guessing your DD could well be in that group unless she's very tall. They get to be "Shirley Temples", in the first act, and had a dance to "Tea for Two" in the second act, and had a couple of small extra bits towards the end during the clock chiming 12 etc. IIRC. I thought it was a great production, and I really enjoyed the music, which is mostly Shostakovich. DD had a fantastic time - so
  8. I would assume we won't know until next week, as they said "by the 5th December". It took 8 days for the results of the 10-yr-olds recall auditions, so I dont't imagine this would be quicker.
