  2. Just wondering if anyone has experience or feedback of The London Ballet Company Associates Programme? Any information appreciated.
  3. Did anyone else’s child audition for LJB associates today? My 8 year old was delighted to be offered a place for a September start, It would be lovely to virtually meet anyone else who will also be attending.

  5. hi everyone, I'm new to this forum chat but I find It really useful to find out infomation about lots of relevant things. I'm wondering if there's anyone out there who has any knowledge of the extended young dancer programme at Elmhurst Ballet School - preferably for the year 11 Does anyone have an idea of the ability of dancers who apply and go for an audition in year 11. Is everyone who turns up absoutely amazing and your typical prima-ballerina or are there a mix of abilities. Also,what happens in an audition? what is the class like? is it really hard/challenging. thanks
  6. Any idea of the times of the SA classes in Covent Garden on a Saturday please? Also what is the uniform? We will be supplied with all the info we need in due course but I’m just trying to plan ideas for travel to London....... thanks in advance
  7. Hi there, Wondered if anyone could advise what is involved in the audition for the Northern Ballet associates just to prepare my DD as we have decided to apply. Is it run as a ballet class in a similar way to the RBS auditions? Many Thanks
  8. Now that all of the Associate programme results are back (or at least the ones I know of), and the dust has settled on decisions, acceptances etc I thought I would start a thread for those who will be a BBA in September (& those who already are) to share tips, ask questions etc. (I will also start an Elmhurst one too) My DD is 8 and we are reasonably new to this type of thing. She’s excited to start though! My (first) question is, how or where do you get the white ribbon bows that the girls have in their hair? Do you buy them like that or do parents make them themselves? This is probably the most ridiculous question I have asked! I look forward to meeting other parents of BBA 😊
  9. Very new to this but my daughter's dance teacher has suggested she audition for the Elmhurst young dancer programme. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any other assosiate programmes that she could also audition for ? We are based in the Northwest so ideally something not a million miles away would be great. Thanks in advance 😁 xx
  10. Hi, newbie here! Hope I put this in the right place! My DS is 10 and took up ballet about 18 months ago and is the only boy in his ballet school, but loves it so much. He is looking at auditioning for associate schemes this year (I know it’s a long shot, but his teacher thinks it’s worth giving a go) - was just wondering if anyone could tell us what the associate lessons are actually like? Thank you so much, Jingles x
  11. Does anybody know the times for the Y4 class for Elmhurst young dancers in Birmingham? Are there any fortnightly options or just weekly? I couldn’t see this info anywhere on the website. DD is keen to apply but it would be a bit of a journey for us (although we have family in Birmingham so it could be broken up with a stay). I am thinking more of the effects on the rest of the family and how it would work. I do realise these schemes are very competitive and chances are small, but worth thinking in advance anyway. We are so limited with options for extra ballet where we live! Thanks so much
  12. Hi, Is anyone selling any Ballet Boost items for Junior Associates please (age 10+); Leotard (Sky blue) Jacket Warm ups Muscle book Thanks
  13. Hi again, since asking for associate recommendations a week or so ago, I’ve applied for Tring (I really liked their associate write up) & RBS (yikes) BUT (we’re going for a fun day out & the experience for future auditions) Oh, also Ballet Boost (they’re very close)! However, I’d also written to The London Ballet Company who have just come back to me. I’ve looked on here but I’m unable to find anyone’s reviews... I’d imagine they’re held in high regards & I'm just asking the obvious... (sorry I’m a newbie) but I would love to hear a review / recommendation on auditions & training. Thank you all x
  14. Hi, I’m new to here & also new to the world of dance so any help you’re able to offer me & my daughter would be hugely appreciated... My daughter was a late starter to dance but since starting a year ago she has quickly excelled & has an absolute passion for ballet. She is 10 & dances 6 days a week across all genres, including performance groups (this is by invitation & of course my daughters enthusiasm)! Anyway, she would love to concentrate more on her ballet & is continuously asking me to practice more. My question is, how difficult is it to get into an associate programme to support her current ballet classes? I’m aware the RBS & Elmhurst are perhaps too ambitious for us at this stage but what about other associate programmes such as Tring, The London Ballet Co & Ballet Cymru? Does anyone have experience with these? Are these programmes equally as hard to gain entry into? We’d be prepared to travel so recommendations would also be appreciated. Thanks.

  16. Hi, has anybody got any experience of the audition or course of the RBS associates in Dundee. Thanks
  17. Hi Im new here so not sure where to post! I have a daughter who is auditioning for associates at Northern Ballet Leeds, I have had confirmation they have received her cheque and form, I also have a younger daughter who would like to audition but her form was sent later. We haven’t heard anything back from them so I’m worrying they haven’t received it and the closing date was yesterday. So my question is , has anyone else sent the form and payment but not heard anything back yet?!
  18. Hello there Folks, I need a little bit of advice.. I run a ballet company and associates programme, but I am really struggling to get the word out there about what we are doing. Obviously all the usual places (Instagram and FB ect), but it is so hard trying to reach people, especially when local schools misunderstand what you are trying to do and think you are poaching their pupils. The point is to make more jobs for dancers and give young dancers extra more professional training, in addition to where they currently train. It is really hard when you are just trying to help improve the dance industry and the futures for young people, but please may I have any suggestions of where you would normally look for additional more serious training, where to advertise and what people are looking for as I am struggling somewhat. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! S x
  19. Good morning everybody, Just looking for some advice really. My DS has been offered a place with both Elmhurst and RBS, in Sunderland and Newcastle respectively. Although the RBS time has been confirmed, Elmhurst have advised they are adjusting their timetable so cannot yet give a time. I was wondering, how common is it for children to do both programmes? Is that acceptable/generally advised/advised against? He was originally dead set that if offered both he would jump at the RBS place but now he has been offered Elmhurst he is making noises about the possibility of attending both. I feel like this would porbably be too much, but aside from that, just wondered if anybody had any experiences of doing two associate programmes, how the different schools were about it, how your DD/DS found it? Thank you!
  20. Hi my dd has successfully auditioned for elmhurst associates and york scholars, i honestly dont know what to do, please some advice, the place is for yr 6 and she wants to be a dancer and is more inclined towards a career in ballet, i know she is only 10 but i worry making wrong decisions now will halt or hinder her progress
  21. Hello, does anyone have any feedback/opinions on Tring Park CBA? My daughter is in year 5 and would be group 2 i think.
  22. Is anyone else auditioning soon? Dds are 14 and 12 and are advanced and intermediate. Yet they have been allocated groups 1 and 2 which on here would appear to be for much younger dancers. I have emailed to query but then thought maybe they had swapped the groups around.
  23. Hi does anyone have any idea when the junior associate audition results for Totnes are out? Thanks!!
  24. My daughter auditioned for Northern ballet associates last year and gained a place on the reserve list. We didn't apply for RBS juniors at that time because of a date clash. She was upset as she was keen to audition particularly when she hadn't got a place. This year we applied for both as the closing date for RBS was before the outcome for Northern. She got a place which is great and she is really happy. We have since had the date for the RBS associates audition. Her teachers are suggesting we should still go but I am anxious that if she was to get into both this would be difficult. I know this is unlikely but wasn't sure of the etiquette in this case. Do some children do more than one programme? It is it better not to audition that be in that situation? Her teachers think the audition will be a good experience.
  25. Hello all, I'm new here. Does anyone have any experience/knowledge of the Elmhurst associate classes in Plymouth? My dd has just turned 8 and is desperate to audition for junior associates but I can't find out when/where the auditions or actual classes are held. Any info greatly appreciated ????
