  1. Thanks Janet, yes, I've had a couple of dancers contact me about modelling. I'm quite excited about this shoot for the jewellery brand because they have given me free reign to be as creative as I like, so I just told them that it would be ballet themed and they are happy with that even though it has nothing to do with their brand. Normally I have to work to a tight brief for this type of shoot.
  2. Hi Pictures in the firelight, the photo shoot is on a trade basis. Models will receive photographs in exchange for their time. Feel free to PM me if you need more details. Thanks
  3. Hi, I'm a bit out of touch because I haven't been around Balletco for a while. I'm looking for some dancers to model for a creative ballet themed photo-shoot to showcase a jewellery brand. Proposed dates are Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th and Saturday 10th September. The shoot will take place in Hinckley. If you are interested, you can view my photography at www.breeze.pics and see the jewellery brand at www.marocjewellery.bigcartel.com You can PM me for more information or if you have any questions. Models must be 16yrs or older for insurance purposes. Thanks!
  4. Bonbon Ballette, the graduate program at Northern looks excellent. There is also one run by Elmhurst. I agree with what Tulip has said above about the limited options for dancers who don't have work. There is also the option of having a coach who works with your DD a few times a week. It can be lean on hours, but we have found it a positive experience and if you have the right teacher, there can be quite a lot of opportunities to take class with other dancers who are in between jobs.
  5. I'm grateful for the information and I shall phone the Medical centre tomorrow and ask how much it is rather than make an appointment only to find I'm locked into a large fee. The entire summer school is 300 euro, I can't believe how expensive it might be to get the medical certificate.
  6. Oh - golly! I hope it isn't £90! Thanks. DD is registered with the GP but has not been in the 2 years we've lived here because she is healthy.
  7. Thank you both so much for that information. I will have to contact the school in France. It just has a box to tick that says "Medical Certificate". No other information on what to provide. Thanks again.
  8. Hello, my daughter is applying for a summer school in France and they require a medical certificate. Has anyone done this before? Do I just make an appointment with the GP and ask for that? Is there a charge? Thanks in advance.
  9. My dd had just turned 18 and was in the Superior Pro group, which is the highest level. The levels were not strictly by age, so there were 18 year olds in the Pro level too. I don't think it really matters what level you are in, the tuition is excellent for all levels. We were allowed to watch a demonstration on the final day and they all showed some lovely work.
  10. My dd applied via video last year and was accepted. It was the best 2 weeks of her life, quite an amazing program. It is hard to get into, but who knows what criteria they are looking for. There seemed to be a good range of students from many different countries.
  11. Thanks, yes, I hope the new ones can find somewhere to share. It is a bit hard without much local knowledge of which places are safe.
