  1. 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 at Elmhurst Young Dancers in September (& those who already are) to share tips, ask questions etc. (I will also start a BBA one too) My DD is 8 and we are reasonably new to this type of thing. She’s excited to start though! I look forward to meeting other parents of Elmhurst Young Dancers 😊
  2. We are just at the very beginning of this journey and I was wondering if anyone could advise on the best age for vocational school? Year 7 seems very young but are you less likely to find a place in year 9. Cost would be a major issue for us and my initial feeling is the later the better but I don't want my daughter to miss out if the potential is there, a big if I realise
  3. 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

    Upper School and 16+

    Hello, Looking for know how and advice! My son will start y11 in Sept 2019, looking to apply for upper schools for sept 2020. It’s make or break year, and the threat of loss of identity if he doesn’t make it is looming large. His dream is ELmhurst, we will also apply to ENB and Central. He does not want to do a course that is more modern or contemporary. Does anyone have any advice, about the audition process, or what other options there are? We live in London which helps. Are there other options?
  5. Can anyone help tell me more about Hammond upper school? I’ve seen lots of posts about it and read the website but would love some more informal feedback. I’ve found this forum to be a treasure trove of lovely people and useful supporting information, so thank you to everyone who posts! I am doing research on upper schools. Happy to share whatever I learn about dates and so forth.
  6. Hi, i was wondering if anyone knows anything on ballet upper school open days, as I could only find information for royal and tring?
  7. 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
  8. Please ask questions about Upper School/6th Form auditions in this thread. Do also make use of the "search" facility (top right of the forum pages) in case your question has been asked before. :-) I apologise for not tagging all Upper Schools but tags are limited in number. If anyone has questions or info about auditions at schools not listed, please do post anyway. Thanks, Spanner
  9. 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 ????
  10. Can anyone tell me what the fees, excluding boarding and before all the extras such as exam fees, are for Elmhurst 6th form please? Can't seem to find the information on the website. I'm assuming its not just as straightforward as deducting a day place from a boarding place? Although the figures I have for that are from last year.
  11. Old-style Elmhurst formal jacket and tartan skirt size C3 (jacket may be a C2 but has fit my 153cm DD with lots of room for growth... will confirm with DD). Suitable for a Year 8, 9 or 10. Please note: current and new Year 7s are in a different formal uniform. £30 + postage
  12. Where are these classes held?? are they all based in Birmingham? & what day of the week/time are they usually on.Many Thanks
  13. 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!
  14. Hello Does anyone know (or have a rough idea) when applications will open for Elmhurst Young Dancers (Junior Associates) and/or Ballet West Junior Associates, for 2019? Thanks in advance for any insight!
  15. I have 2 tickets to the Elmhurst Ballet Company show 'Origins' on Saturday 9 February 7pm at Elmhurst Ballet School in Edgbaston, Birmingham. Good seats, C8+9 selling for £25 for both (bought for £35). For more info see https://www.elmhurstdance.co.uk/Elmhurst-Ballet-Company.html
  16. Elmhurst extended associate leotard by Freed. Bought new from Dancing Boutique Teal colour, size 3, ruched front lined, comes with belt. Good condition ..£10
  17. Hi My daughter auditioned for a year 6 place for Birmingham yesterday being 21st may. Does any one know how places work and how many are in a year 6 class? Also how long for a response? Do they email you regardless of outcome? Thanks in advance
  18. Dd has audition for this next week but I have heard of children who already have places. I thought the 25th was the only audition date. I am wondering if they have any spaces left?
  19. I had a skim through previous Elmhurst SS topics, but could not spot an answer (probably one very obvious, sorry!) Just wanted to ask if you need to send money in with your application? It says £25 discount before 9th March, but i know with RBS there was an application fee, wondering if it is the same for Elmhurst? Hoping to send the forms off today 😊 thank you ! 💕

  22. Hello Could someone with a DC at elmhurst lower school tell me how many hours of ballet a week they do there? Also, is there any way of finding out which upper schools Y11s graduate to? Thanks
  23. Hi, just wondering if anyone has heard about audition dates for January yet?
  24. Hi need some advice dd keen to audition for central & Elmhurst, feeling concerned that if offered a place how do they cope at 16 with cooking, cleaning etc as well as studies? Seems very young & surely at that age would need house parents for guidance, does anyone have dc at these schools? Thanks 🤔
