  1. I’m looking for some advice on my daughters ballet. She’s been at the same school since she was 2 and has danced there for 5 years now, she’s almost 8 and still hasn’t sat her primary ballet exam. The principal teacher told me in January this year that she’d be sitting in November 19 and now I’ve been told, without any explanation that she won’t be sitting it until March 20, by which point she’ll be at the age when most of the girls in the dance school sit Grade 1. I know it’s not always important to do exams but I’m worried about this affecting my daughters confidence. When is it normal to sit a RAD primary ballet exam? Thanks xx

  4. 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
  5. Hello there Folks, New here to ballet forum so hello to you all! So I run New Works Ballet Theatre, a new ballet company based in Bristol, with the intention of bringing more ballet to the South West of England and beyond, brand new inventive ballets and retellings and creating more jobs for professional dancers. The company also runs an Associates programme, which I am expanding on. Are there any young dancers out there looking to train more professionally who would be interested? The programme teaches not only ballet and contemporary dance, but also a variety of different dance workshops, choreography, ballet history, sports science, nutrition, how to run a company and put on productions to name but a few. Also the Associates regularly perform with the professional company and in their own productions. I really want the training that the youngers receive to be a gate way of training into the company, would anyone be interested in that? We have just started work on our Winter production of Little Mermaid. xx

  11. Hi guys, DS is looking for some private lessons in North West/North Wales. He’s 11 and is feeling a bit left out. He’s had RAD classes for 3 years but finds the syllabus “boring” and wants to learn some man moves! We’ve asked his previous teacher but she can’t fit him into her schedule, which is another story! 😯 He's at the gangly age where his legs are too long for his brain and would really benefit from 1-1 time with a teacher. We are happy to travel, within reason and are looking at other ideas too like CAT schemes etc etc. Hope you guys can help. 👍👍👍 He’s really missing his classes...xx
  12. Hi guys, Hope this is ok to start but I could do with a boys thread to refer to. DS is 11, and has been dancing for nearly two years, his fave is ballet but also does tap and jazz. I’m getting a bit cheesed off at not being able to find anything for him. Bought new tap shoes today and ended up in ladies yet again!! (He’s a 4). I try to get things made when I can find and afford them. His ballet bag came from the USA and I’m so tired of googling “freed Aaron” like it’s the only leotard he’ll ever find. Can anyone point us in a direction of nice boys stuff? Good workshops, associate schemes?? He is in a nice school but still the only boy in his class and wonder if he’s missing out. We live in the NW of the UK, but will travel for the right opportunities. Thank youuuuuu! xx
  13. Morning peoples, DS is off to a ballet/dance photo shoot today and just realised it’s asked for him to have a few poses prepared. Hasn’t been dancing long and isn’t particularly flexible, any ideas welcome! 😆😆 xx
  14. hi, I'm currently 15 years old (year 10) and i'm starting to look at vocational ballet/dance schools to apply for when i'm 16. (Upper schools/6th Forms.) I'm a serious dancer, and i particularly love ballet, although do modern/jazz too. I train more or less daily alongside gym/pilates. I currently do festivals as-well and my mum coaches me for my solos (she's an ex dancer) I don't currently take any grades, but in class we've worked through the RAD advanced 2 syllabus and one of my teachers has suggested me taking the exam, so i'm around that level right now?? Anyway, I just wanted to know any info about dance schools... such as auditions, the standard, what it's like, personal experiences and also any way i can improve my training in advance for full-time training! Thank you!

  17. Hi I’m looking to buy the ISTD imperial ballet dvd for Advanced 1 & Advanced 2 and the Cecchetti DVD for Advanced 1 & Advanced 2 Ballet..if anybody has either of these to sell I would be very grateful😊
  18. Hi everyone, DD is joining some additional classes from her dance school soon and one of them is RAD Intermediate. Does anyone know how RAD’s Intermediate compares with ISTD’s Intermediate? In terms of difficulty, no. of exercises, etc. Also I believe for the RAD exam she needs soft blocks/Demi pointe shoes as well as pointe shoes. Does she not need regular flats at all? If not do they wear the soft blocks in class instead of flat? Many thanks!
  19. Hi, I am currently studying to take the last part of the IDTA Level 4 Diploma in Dance Teaching in Ballet. This is for Unit 3 and is the for the last exam where you have to teach a class in front of the examiner. I was wondering if anyone has taken this in any style and could help with a couple of questions? 1. Are we allowed to take notes into the room with some exercises written down to teach to the class? 2. Do you wait to hear from the examiner inbetween each exercise taught or is it better to carry on teaching as if you would in a class and she is mostly there to observe 3. How many exercises do you think I need to prepare for the exam and which ones? eg. plies, tendu's, set adage etc? The handbook says the examiner could ask for anything. Thanks.
  20. Hi My daughter has got 4 weeks off over Christmas so I am looking for intensives or workshops. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
  21. Are there ballet boarding schools that focus solely on Neoclassical ballet in Canada? If not, are there at least some with some focus on it? I must admit that I don't know much about ballet but I'm writing a book where a character is passionate about it, thus I'd like to know some basic things so that should it be published, the information will be realistic and accurate.
  22. How can a foreign ballet dancer join Paris Opera Ballet? Also, I'd like to know whether the repertoire of Paris Opera Ballet is mostly affected by Classical, Neoclassical or Contemporary ballet(on average at least)? Regarding the first question, I tried to search but got more confused so I thought it would be better if I asked here) (Not a ballet dancer/connoisseur. Looking for basic info for a book I'm writing. Thanks for readying)
  23. Hello! Thanks for accepting me to this forum. ☺️ I am not a ballet-dancer and don't have any experience(except basic stuff regarding some performances and styles) however I'm writing a book where the protagonist is a passionate ballet dancer and the reason I signed in this forum is the fact that I'm doing some research on ballet in order to make what's in the book seem realistic. I'd like to know beforehand whether my questions can be answered or if this is strictly a forum for ballet-dancers. (Note: Even if ballet is important in the story, it's barely involved in the main plotline but only in the past of the character and some goals he/she had made. I also don't want to spoil what happens so I might not answer some kind of questions. Most of them are related to ballet styles and ballet education, not about individual performance or technique.)
  24. Hi all - encouraged by the multiple-page review of Singapore Dance Theatre's (SDT) in October 2018's issue of Dance Europe, various folk and a current thread on Performances in the USA, I've finally decided to start a thread on layman audience reviews of SDT's performances. Brief history: SDT was started by the late Anthony Then, and Madam Goh Soo Khim (who was in the first cohort of students at the Australian Ballet School, and is the sister of the late choreographer Choo-San Goh); it has, in its repertoire, works by the likes of Balanchine, Choo-San Goh (of course), Edwaard Liang, Nils Christe, etc. I note with trepidation the Guidelines regarding making the forum a conduit for one's own blog, but it's not a good idea to paste my reviews here as they are rather detailed (read: wordy), being meant both as a record for myself and for people who missed out on the performances. Hence, I'll just leave the links to the performances reviewed by Dance Europe (October 2018). Hope they'll be of interest to someone here! https://balletbelatedetcetera.wordpress.com/2018/07/29/singapore-dance-theatres-30th-anniversary-gala-part-1-double-contrasts-and-the-configurations-pas-de-deux/ https://balletbelatedetcetera.wordpress.com/2018/07/29/singapore-dance-theatres-30th-anniversary-gala-part-2-linea-adora-and-sync/ https://balletbelatedetcetera.wordpress.com/2018/08/05/singapore-dance-theatres-30th-anniversary-gala-part-3-sync/ If there are any issues with this post, please do let me know. I have noted the Guidelines on flooding and if this post is allowed, I will only update the thread as and when there are reviews, if anyone is interested. Thank you!
  25. Hi all, DDs birthday is coming up and she’s particularly keen on a few new ballet skirts. Does anyone know of any good websites that sell nice ones? She loves the brand Bullet pointe but I’m reluctant to ship it from the USA - does anyone know where I can get those skirts in England? Thanks!
