  1. Does anyone know if there is a closing date for applications to the elmhurst summer school?? I can’t see anything On the website and I called but the receptionist didn’t think there was one. Surely they have a cut off point??
  2. Thank you so much. She’s 14 so an older girl so I guess tights are good. She wasn’t too impressed with bare legs! We don’t have any regulation leotards do I will tell her to go for the plain navy strappy one rather than the beautiful red lace one she’s just bought 😂 thanks for the photo tips. I won’t be getting involved. Think I’ll leave that to her ballet teacher! I can’t be doing with the huffing, puffing and Eye rolling that comes with it!
  3. Sorry if this has been covered already but I have searched and can’t find an answer for the elmhurst application it states practice clothes and bare feet unless stated. So looking at the photos there are two with shoes on. Are these both pointe shoes?? (Obviously the one on the left is on pointe but the other?) Do they wear tights? Or is it bare legs? And practice clothes?? We live overseas so not sure if this is a British term for a particular leotard.. can anyone help please ??
  4. Thank you everyone for the replies. We’ve now applied for Yorkshire and she would also like to apply to elmhurst. If we are unsuccessful for those then we will try one that doesn’t require photos. Her teacher is keen for her to try enb but she doesn’t want to go to a non residential. thanks again for the suggestions. Just need to sort photos for elmhurst now but that’s another post! 😄
  5. Hello I’m new on here so apologies if I’m not asking in the right place. We live in Cyprus and my daughter (she’s 14) would like to attend a summer course in the uk this year when we visit for a wedding. We applied for rbs but unfortunately she didn’t get in (she’s on the wait list but I’m assuming so are millions of others,) I have a few questions that I hope someone can help with. First question, how do I know if she’s at the right level (good enough) or if we are out of our league. We have no experience of ballet in the uk. She did a summer intensive here in Cyprus last year but I’ve no idea how the standards compare. Next questions. If she is the correct level I need somewhere residential (or where we can take a family holiday) but it needs to be the weeks before or after July 11th. We really can’t afford to stay all summer in the uk or make 2 trips as we are a fairly large family and flights o Cyprus can be expensive (dd is the middle child out of 5) school here finishes end of June so we can travel any time after that. So far I’ve found ballet west and Yorkshire ballet that tie in with our dates. Any other suggestions? Thank you you in advance 🙂
