  2. Hi, My daughter is going to a ballet boost audition. I was just wondering if anybody has any details on how quickly you find out if audition was successful and begin training?
  3. I have two sky blue Ballet Boost leotards for sale. In used but very good condition. Size 8-10 Size 10-12 £10 each incl 2nd class uk postage.
  4. Hi all My daughter (8) has been offered Associate places with TLBC and BB. I've read reviews on both and both seem really good. One question I have left tho is - is Ballet Boost really strict?
  5. Hi, Starting BBA senior associate programme this Sunday, anyone know where to find the uniform Hunter Green leotard? It says it's available from Capezio but I can't find it...
  6. Hello. Just wondering if anyone has any preloved Ballet Boost Associates uniform for sale? Looking for a jacket and a bag. Jacket Size 11-12 or 13. Many thanks.
  7. 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 😊
  8. There is a Ballet Boost Associates audition near us this month. What are people's opinions and experience of them? Is it a relatively new enterprise? are the standards high? DD wants to apply and she has a couple of classmates who have been doing it this year
  9. I am very excited to bring to you The Academy of Balletic Arts I have wanted to do this for 3 yrs now with my very own building but its hugely expensive!! In the mean time I am opening with the kind permission of Pineapple and am in talks with other venues too. So far I have space for Yr 7 , 8 and 9 to train 3 days a week from 4.30pm at pineapple. As this programme is aimed at those who fall just shy of White Lodge or Elmhurst or those who make a choice to stay at home longer - I would fully expect they have been with an Associate programme for some time and so will have 4 fully vocational classes per week. With an added programme of pilates that will be set up for each child, a tailor-made programme from our Physio (Luke Abnett - Ex RBS), coaching 121 with myself (included), swimming and Anatomy - there will be plenty for them to do! The aim is to assist the talented ones who may flourish later or just not quite tick all the boxes at 11 but by 16 will be beautiful! Or those that choose to stay at their wonderful academic school AND stay with their families AND now also get the training thats needed to succeed. I wish to help these dancers achieve their dreams with a forward thinking international approach to training. Creating global links and ensuring the best interest of the student is paramount throughout. This programme is based on years of listening to students and parents and observing whats necessary and I truly hope to ensure its what is needed. Please feel free to add comments of what you think or need as all feedback and thoughts are useful. It really is being developed for you and your dancers with a heart felt desire from myself to help you all. If you wish to enquire further please email me emmanorthmore@yahoo.com info @balletboost.com 07958 725862 TO APPLY for the AUDITION on MARCH 29th 2018 at 4pm email monique_aaliyah@live.com (official school email yet to be tried and tested but will be coming!)

MUSICALITY & PERFORMANCE May 26th with Ballet Boost for ages 12 plus @ Central School of Ballet £50 Looking at how the correct understanding of musicality impacts technique, artistry and dynamics in a masterclass held by Emma Northmore lasting at least 2 hours. After lunch there is another masterclass which will take the information from the morning and combine it with their performance skills. Tapping in to the use of personality, energy and confidence to create the best possible performer. All this is aimed at vocational Ballet students and those hoping to go in to vocational training. The afternoon will be Musical Theatre work which has been planned with the ballet student in mind and will help them find that spark they need to succeed.
