  1. Hi everyone! I am thinking of auditioning for the Hammond lower school dance to start in year 8, so I was wondering what type of exercises you do in the ballet and modern classes, what type of solo to prepare, and what they do to test your flexibility? It would also be helpful if you could tell me what kind of ability/grade they expect you to be at so I can see if I am ready for this (it’s a big jump from just dancing for fun a few times a week, but I have been thinking about it for a while). Would you also recommend doing a few extra classes to prepare for the audition? Thanks an
  2. DC is currently attending a vocational lower school funded by an MDS award. They would like to audition for another vocational school this year but we are not sure of the etiquette/rules around this. Surely the 4 MDS schools are aware this happens as children move around so is it a case of we are open and honest with the school about the intention to audition elsewhere? DC is very happy at the current school but wishes to continue auditioning at the school they would be looking at for upper school in a few years. Does anyone have any experience/advice about this. Thank you.

    Hi everyone, so after auditioning for the past 2 days at WL year 7. I'm curious to know how everyone feels about recalls as a lot of the girls were crying as they left. Do we feel it's the end or there is still light at the end of the tunnel? My DD really thinks she doesn't stand a chance now. But the top dog did say it doesn't mean yes or no. I would love to hear your opinions as I'm going crazy 🤪 xx

Hi guys, Pretty new to this game so bare with, My daughter is 10 years old, very keen and pretty good (I am a little bias), she wants to start auditioning and to do more competitions, so here's where I need help...….I've looked through threads and found things like RBS junior associate, London Children's Ballet etc..

  6. Hi, looking for some advice. My dd is a JA with RBS she has an audition with elmhurst coming up for full time training. Just wondering what she should wear should she wear her JA uniform or not? Thanks 😄
  7. Does anyone have any ideas what sort of leotard styles and colours would be preferable for a girl auditioning for a year 7 place at both WL and Elmhurst ? I had chosen a burgandy inter mezzo leotard but her JA teachers isn't too keen . I now have the choice of sky blue or raspberry .
  8. Hello my DD has just been accepted into the Hammond. She is going to the call back audition, aiming to achieve the scholarship. On the open day we were provided with a sliding scale to get an idea of what the cost would be, but I can’t find it. Would anyone have a copy or know where I can obtain one before I have to request one from the school please? Thanks
