  1. Hi Balletjack, Both my daughters have attended YDAAC whilst being JAs at the Royal. It's a lovely school with brilliant teachers some of whom we knew from the RBS. WLSD(part-time school) offers after school and weekend classes for children up to age 16 although they accept by audition if the kids are 8+. YDA associates are mostly the ones who have attended at least 2 WLSD classes to be considered to audition. As far as I know YDA Associates are in two groups but I haven't seen anyone older than 11, as that's when everyone auditions for Vocational schools. They obviously don't need to attend the Associate class once they've started full-time training. Hope this helps a little and good luck to your DD.
  2. [i have the Grade 4 - 5 DVD but not sure if they have updated it. DD took hers last June. Please send me a private message if you are interested.] Dear Interested Parent, I've just received the DVD, thank you so much!!! It will be greatly appreciated by my daughters :-) Thank you once again. xx
  3. If anyone has a Grade 4 DVD and would like to sell, I'd be interested too.
  4. Hi all, Could anyone please give us some ideas on the one-minute solo dance for Tring Junior dance audition? I wonder what standard is expected of 10 year olds if they only do classical ballet training but not modern. Can they create their on choreography? Thank you! x
  5. Ah, that's so sweet JulieW.. Do the girls look quite similar in your photos so I can use them as I've got twins?? xx
  6. Thank you for your reply Amber21, I did check all the web sites I know before putting the question on here, even got in touch with BalletNews as google only shows the photos from their web site. They emailed me back to say sorry as they only took the pictures of the second performance.(JAs were scheduled in the programme to dance twice and were split into two groups so each danced only once, my girls being in the 1st group.) Anyway, I might as well ask the school tomorrow. Thank you once again for your help. best wishes, x
  7. Hi all, I'm a new member, mum of two girls who love dancing. I find this forum really useful and very friendly indeed :-) I was wondering if any of you or anyone you know happen to have the photographs of the latest Open Day of the RBS at White Lodge. My daughters took part in the first opening performance of the 17th Century dances as JAs. It was such a lovely performance and the costumes were amazing. I couldn't manage to take good photos as there were far too many people around, hoping that we could purchase them from those who seemed to be photographers with professional cameras, taking pictures constantly. Got in touch with BalletNews only to find out that they had some images of the children on their web site, who danced in the afternoon. I'd be grateful if anyone could tell me how to get hold of those photos, as I've got nothing for my daughters to keep as a memory of that beautiful day. Thank you in advance and good luck to all who are waiting for the results of their auditions..
