  7. 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.

If you could give song suggestions that would be greatly appreciated:) Thankyou xx
  8. So I live in London and am 15. This means that it's gotten to the time that I have to decide what to do once I leave year 11. I have a burning passion for dance and know that I am very good at it and would like to pursue it as a career. Therefore I would like to do a Dance BTEC course at a college. This will enable me to get as much possible knowledge on dance, and the most training hours, which will enable me to become a better dancer. However my sister (she makes all the important decisions if you wondering why I'm not mention mum and dad) thinks that I should do an A Level Dance. This is be

  10. I am just reading a novel called 84 Ribbons, which I suspect is for young adults really, but I am loving it. I am constantly looking for ballet novels and biographies, but I have have read everything I can find on Amazon,etc,and am now struggling to find anything new. Has anyone got a favourite that they can suggest that I might not have read? I suspect that my standards are lower when it comes to ballet books than they are for other books!

  19. Hello! I am 15 and I would like to start doing ballet, however I am quite overweight (which I am currently fixing) and as a result of sports I also have some (quite bulky) muscle, I'm also quite short, so no ballet body unforunately. I have had some experience with ballet, I danced until the age of 7 but then quit (as quite of lot of people do) Despite this I would love to eventually be able to go en pointe and maybe even take part in competitions, I don't want to be professional. So my main questions are, will I be able to keep up? Will I ever be able to compete? And d
  20. Hi Can anyone suggest photographers who are experienced in dance photography. We want one who will take great shots in their own studio for a couple of hours, and give us all the digital prints - not these where you pay £?? per photo.

  21. I'm 19, and completely love ballet, I know I'm way to late to get into a company so I thought about teaching or pre-professional. I love the idea of the degree that Rambert offer as there is no upper age limit however it's 2 and 1/2 hours away from me. When I noticed EBS sixth Form but then I ruled it out due to it being 16-18. I would love to study dance full time. I currently do intermediate RAD and pointe but that's only 2 hours a week as that's all the ballet for my age my school offers. My question is, is there any point putting in the effort and auditioning if I'm going to be 19/20

    Does anyone have any suggestions for finding a suitable expression for dancing/exams? My current default expression veers - it turns out that decades of on-and-off martial arts aren’t a great preparation for dancing in this case - from perplexed and possibly constipated to grumpy old man to homicidal. My wife was concerned I was likely to scare my examiner before the summer! However, any fake smile I plaster on makes me look utterly demented in a movie serial killer sort of way, which seems unlikely to help. Any ideas?
  23. Last Thursday I was invited to the Creative Industries Federation EU Response Event at Manchester Metropolitan University. Over 45 individuals were on the attendance list from design, education, fashion, museums, publishing, local authorities and most of the performing arts. The big exception was dance and although I think I had been invited in my capacity as an intellectual property lawyer I championed the dance industry as a dance blogger as there was nobody else to do so. Even though the meeting took place in the Ormond Building which is about 100 yards from the Dancehouse Theatre and t
