  1. I'm a teacher, and our London based dance school would like to start doing competitions but would like some advice on where to start. Any good local competitions to start with? Are solos or group dances better to begin with? Are there criteria for each style/age group? Any other advice for starting out? We currently have some very talented children with strong technique up to age 14 in all genres. Thanks so much in advance!

  3. Hello, My dance teacher has given me have a new jazz solo and has let me choose the song. I have spent lots of time on Spotify looking at jazz solo songs, but still uncertain on what song to choose. I am 15 years old so I want a ‘mature’ song but I’m open to suggestions. Im wondering what make a song good to dance to? I personally think having highs and low parts in the music is important, but anything else? If you could give song suggestions that would be greatly appreciated:) Thankyou xx
  4. I'm worried about the music we've chosen for E's first competition. I just read the rules for an upcoming festival. There, it states: "Music must be a legitimate copy – if you copy music from YouTube or illegally download it will not work on theatre system due to copyright software." We have three numbers. Two of the songs are from cd's/downloads I've purchased. The third is a YouTube download because it's an old song and not available on download (that I can find). All three songs have been cut by a sound engineer friend to make them the right length. I'm very concerned

  7. I've just seen a Facebook post about a new BBC competition (televised in some way, I guess, on BBC Four). The BBC website states that: "BBC Young Dancer 2015 is a brand new award for young people that showcases the very best of young British dance talent. Young dancers will enter in one of four categories of dance: ballet, contemporary, hip hop and South Asian dance.

  8. Hi, I've spent some time chatting with a costume designer/maker who creates costumes for a ballet company. He could make excellent tutus and other costumes for students for competitions but when I suggested it, he said he hasn't because he wouldn't know where to find the customers. Does anyone know the going rate for tutus and where he could let people know about his work? They are such gorgeous costumes, I thought it was worth asking for some advice from the people here. Thanks in advance
