Hi! I am auditioning for NYB in Birmingham on Sunday. I was just wondering if you could answer a few queries I had? 1. I wear glasses but never for normal class (I manage fine most of the time). I have tried getting contact lenses but as I live in quite a rural area there are no appointments for a long time. Has anyone or their children got in to NYB (or made it to the final) wearing glasses? Or should I just not wear them like normal and squint a bit? 2. Following on from that point, would I be at a disadvantage if I asked the teacher to repeat a step/sequence/exercise? 3. Finally, do you know if the preliminary auditions include pointe work? Thank you for any help you can give me, I really appreciate it. 😊
Hi, Does anyone have any experience of the junior National Youth Ballet final audition process? All the information that I've been able to find so far relates to the senior/main cast auditions. My DD has got through to the final stages as a junior but it's the first time that she has ever done anything like this so I was wondering what she should expect in terms of the format for the day. If anyone can shed any light on the process and what she can expect, we'd be very grateful. Thank you.
My 8 year old dd is about to venture off for 10 days with NYB and having tried and tried to teach her to do her own bun, we're not having much success! She might make it through the pliés but it ain't gonna hold up beyond that!! Can someone who's done NYB before please Tell me if there will be someone there to help them with their hair? I can't imagine one house mistress doing 20 buns every morning!!
Hi, Just wondered in anyone else was doing the NYB auditions this year? DD has her audition slot on 31st and is very excited about the experience. Any pointers of tips would be appreciated. She's done the EYB so i'm assuming the audition process will be similar to that - lots and lots of kids in rows, front row moving to the back after each exercise? There's no "wear this" instructions, so again assuming basic leotard and socks and shoes, not tights? Thanks in advance
