  1. Hi... can anyone tell me how competitive EYB is normally ie usual number of applications and those successful? My DD is keen to apply (High Wycombe) but having just received disappointing news from JA's not sure I have the heart to put her through another rejection if odds are stacked highly against her! Grateful if anyone has any ideas! Thank you x
  2. I have just submitted the online audition videos for my DD. It's our first time auditioning for anything ballet related. DD and I found making the videos really hard! Anyone else apply? How did you find making the video?
  3. Does anyone else have children who have successfully auditioned for the November EYB performance of the Nutcracker? My nine year old found out that she has a place on Tuesday afternoon (she’s very excited) but all of her friends are still waiting to hear...
  4. Hi all I just thought that I would start a thread to find out if anyone/anyone's children were going to be in EYB Cinderella in Hollywood in Darlington (or another location?). If so this might be a useful place to 'meet', share info etc. Also, if anyone has done this ballet, I would love to hear more about it. I have a junior girl... I hope there are others out there too...
  5. Anyone any recent experience of this please? Have read previous posts but they're dated Thanks
  6. Hi all Does anyone have any advice on split sole satin ballet shoes for a very skinny footed child. They’re for EYB and so need to be satin. She’s only a 13.5/1 in ballet shoes. Bloch (who supply her Elmhurst satin but full soles) don’t appear to start until a size 2. We’ve tried the So Danca ones but they seem quite stiff and wide. Help please!! 🩰 Thank you so much 😊
  7. I was having a look at the EYB auditions page and saw they’ve got audition dates for Bromley and Southend: http://www.englishyouthballet.co.uk/auditions1.html Nothing near enough for us yet, but they are for performances in April, May and August, so I assume they’re still nailing down the dates / venues for June and July.
  8. What are the roles available in auroras wedding and ballet Etudes? My daughters 9.
  9. Does anyone know what the parts are for juniors and seniors in swan Lake ? i have several pupils at casting day today . I’d like to be able to tell them a bit about their parts ! Presume seniors are swans ! Thank you
  10. Hi all - I'm seeking an English Youth Ballet T-shirt(s) in a size small if anyone has one/any they are looking to sell? Black or Blue preferably, but would accept Pink. Their stock seems to be low and it was mentioned that it would be a few weeks off before they have any more in, and my dancer would like one desperately! Thank you! x
  11. So new EYB dates are out I'm so happy that one of them is near enough to me that I can audition! P.S. Does anybody know what the auditions (particularly the senior auditions) entail? I know it is just a class, but 1h 45 mins is quite a long class. I can imagine it would be very busy! P.P.S Out of interest, who does the part of Clara go to in the Nutcracker? http://www.englishyouthballet.co.uk/auditions1.html RICKMANSWORTH Audition date: Tuesday 14th November 2017 Audition Venue: Watersmeet Ballet: Coppelia Performance dates: Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd March 2018 DARLINGTON Audition date: Sunday 26th November 2017 Audition Venue: Civic Theatre Ballet: Coppelia Performance dates: Friday 13th & Saturday 14th April 2018 Auditions for 2018 NORWICH Audition date: Tuesday 6th February 2018 Audition Venue: Sprowston Community School Ballet: Cinderella in Hollywood (New Production) Performance dates: Friday 25th & Saturday 26th May 2018 WIMBLEDON Audition date: Wednesday 28th February 2018 Audition Venue: New Winbledon Theatre Ballet: Swan Lake Performance dates: Friday 24th & Saturday 25th August 2018 SHREWSBURY Audition date: Tuesday 13th March 2018 Audition Venue: Theatresevern Ballet: Cinderella in Hollywood (New Production) Performance dates: Friday 22nd & Saturday 23rd June 2018 CARLISLE Audition date: Sunday 15th April 2018 Audition Venue: Sands Cente Carlisle Ballet: Ballet Etudes/Nutcracker Suite Performance dates: Friday 21st & Saturday 22nd September 2018 NOTTINGHAM Audition date: Tuesday 17th April 2018 Audition Venue: Nottingham Girls Academy Ballet: Cinderella in Hollywood (New Production) Performance dates: Friday 20th & Saturday 21st July 2018 BUXTON Audition date: Tuesday 12th June 2018 Audition Venue: Buxton Opera House Ballet: Sleeping Beauty 'Wedding/Ballet Etudes Performance dates: Friday 19th & Saturday 20th October 2018 CRAWLEY Audition date: Monday 2nd July 2018 Audition Venue: Hawth Theatre Ballet: Cinderella in Hollywood (New Production) Performance dates: Friday 9th & Saturday 10th November 2018
  12. Hi My dd was due to attend Buxton audition this week. Unfortunately this now clashes with something unavoidable and so cant attend. I emailed to inform them and Miss Lewis has just replied saying I can send in a DVD for assessment! Anyone else done this before? Any recommendations on what to send? DD could send her ballet solo from festivals which obviously shows her ability to perform or do I send polished grade 5 exercises??
  13. Hello all, Gathering together all the previous EYB threads it occurred to me that we often get asked the same sorts of questions about EYB, so I thought I would post links all together in one thread. If you have questions about English Youth Ballet, please browse through the linked threads first, as there is a strong chance your question may already have been answered there. If it hasn't - ask away! :-) Kind regards, Spanner Previous EYB threads: http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/3898-english-youth-ballet/ http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/2765-english-youth-ballet/ http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/2674-english-youth-ballet-rehearsal-times/ http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/2348-english-youth-ballet-senior-audition/ http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/509-english-youth-ballet-auditions/ http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/197-eyb-productions/#entry1947 http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/4194-eyb-in-2014-when-and-where/#entry51080 http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/1566-english-youth-ballet-nottingham/

  17. Just wondering if anyone else is going to see 'Copellia' in Stockport this evening performed by the English Yoith Ballet? My dd is performing and I'm really looking forward to seeing it!
  18. I want to audition for the English youth ballet in June. Of course, I haven't auditioned yet so I don't know if I will get in but if I did, I have the problem of the fact that I will be away for 3 of the 5 day rehearsals in August. Would that be allowed? Also, I was wondering for the 'casting and press photo' day, how do they pick the parts? Is it dependent on the audition or do they do another type of audition? Any help would be appreciated
  19. Does anyone have expereince of EYB productions? My dd wants to audition but I have heard mixed reports about it. Some say it's a great experience and others say that everyone gets in and the weak ones get put at the back! Any feedback of experiences or views would be welcome, thank you.
  20. Hi, I have searched the EYB thread but cannot find exactly the info I am looking for! Could any one give me an idea of the rehearsal schedule for Woking? Dd did Aylesbury 2 years ago but it was in the summer so it did not involve any weekends or time off school. The Woking performance is in mid November. Would the 10 days of rehearsals require any time off school? Would it be every Saturday and Sunday ? Dd starts secondary in September and we do not know how supportive a new school will be regarding authorised abscences? Thanks for your help.
