  1. RBS have uploaded a post with brief details of last year's graduates: when they entered the School, their accomplishments at the School and information about what they've been doing since they left. Most interesting, and I do hope we'll see further follow-up. https://www.royalballetschool.org.uk/2022/08/01/our-2021-graduates-where-are-they-now/
  2. due to an upgrade i am looking to re-home SCS d51. please DM and leave a message if interested. thanks
  3. Hi If anyone has a spare ticket (seated or standing) for this performance please can you send me a PM. many thanks Peter
  4. Hi all, I am not acquainted with the dance world at all. My Dd just got accepted as a JA at RBS, so I've got all these questions swirling in my head and I'm hoping you can help me out. Assuming she is still interested in ballet in the next few years, would we then apply for vocational schools for her in y7? Are these boarding schools, since we have none very local to us. I'm also not keen to let her go at such a tender age. Could she have a career in ballet without going to a vocational school? Sending her for ballet training will be a big sacrifice for us as a family - time, and effort, and finances. I know it's a decision only I can make, but what kinds of career paths would this lead to? And what sort of salary? Ultimately I am struggling to answer my question- is it worth it? (I sincerely don't want to offend anyone here, I am just in need of wisdom from experienced parents). Thank you so much for your time to answer my questions!
  5. Anyone going to the online launch events this week? I’m excited to hear more about the contextual & creative work.

  7. Hi, I will be taking my daughter to audition at the Royal Ballet next month as a year eight. Does anybody have any tips for us? Thanks! : )
  8. I’m a year 6 ballet mum with young dancer who is about to embark on vocational school auditions on the advice of our daughters dance teachers , both local and Ja . Obviously I have a lot of reservations but my daughter is desperate to go especially to white lodge ( I realise this is unlikely)however I’d be very interested to hear from any parents with children studying there with regards to all aspects . Interested to hear experiences both good and bad so if the opportunity arises we can make an informed decision.
  9. Does anyone know if WL generally has an open day for prospective applicants and, if so, roughly when in the year it is? I appreciate it was all online last year (and may be again I suppose) but I wondered what had generally happened in the past. Thanks.
  10. Just saw that The Royal Ballet School have launched their Online Summer Intensive again and they are now also offering Adult sessions. Cant wait! Here is the link to all the info if you are interested. Sounds amazing! https://royalballetschool.org.uk/train/dancer-training/intensive-courses/online-summer-intensive/
  11. Unfortunately both I and a relative are unable to come to get to London for the RBS summer performances. So selling one ticket for the RBS ROH matinee on 10th July (£3, restricted view) and one for each of the Linbury RBS performances: Wed 23rd June 9:15 p.m. Thurs 24th June 4:30 p.m. Thurs 24th June 9:15 p.m. Friday 25th June 9:15 p.m. Sat 26th June 4:30 p.m. Sat 26th June 9:15 p.m.
  12. We are just at the very beginning of this journey and I was wondering if anyone could advise on the best age for vocational school? Year 7 seems very young but are you less likely to find a place in year 9. Cost would be a major issue for us and my initial feeling is the later the better but I don't want my daughter to miss out if the potential is there, a big if I realise
  13. So, please can someone enlighten me on how to put all video sections together? i don’t want to film in one go so how do I put the videos together if using an iPad for example? Is there a handy App I can use ?
  14. Please ask questions about Upper School/6th Form auditions in this thread. Do also make use of the "search" facility (top right of the forum pages) in case your question has been asked before. :-) I apologise for not tagging all Upper Schools but tags are limited in number. If anyone has questions or info about auditions at schools not listed, please do post anyway. Thanks, Spanner
  15. Hi, is anyone else as worried as I am about putting together the video audition?

    Hi everyone, I’m looking for some information regarding applying at RBS. It states on the website you pay relevant fee when applying, but I cannot see how much this is? Maybe I’m looking in the wrong section, but could anyone enlighten me to the cost. TIA
  17. Sorry for starting a new thread but I didn’t want to post in several and am interested in hearing about all vocational schools. What are the chances of being offered a vocational school place into Year 10? If you are not successful for scholarship funding (or are ineligible) can you still be offered a place if you can pay fees?
  18. Any idea of the times of the SA classes in Covent Garden on a Saturday please? Also what is the uniform? We will be supplied with all the info we need in due course but I’m just trying to plan ideas for travel to London....... thanks in advance
  19. Hi Looking for experience please, would someone be kind enough to tell me what generally happens at the first auditions for Year 7 RBS and Elmhurst please. Things like do they need to do splits both types front and box, froggies, improvisation etc that sort of thing... do they take their shoes off etc. All this is new to us and I'm on a fact finding mission 😂 thanks in advance 😊
  20. Does anyone know the costs of attending the Royal Ballet Upper School or the English National Ballet School please? Tuition and accommodation? Are there grants/loans available to help pay?
  21. Hi all. Looking for one ticket to the Royal Ballet School performance on Sunday in the ROH; any price band. Hoping for something other than the Amphitheatre (am trying to trade up, ie move down 😉
  22. Hi all, My child 11 is on w1 non-res of WL Summer Intensive. Could anyone who’s child has done an Intensive at WL give me some information about what to expect. I would like to know is the day really well structured, what are the approx size of the classes, are the children supervised well in downtime. I am asking because my child has autism, RBS are aware, as my child is an associate with them. My child isn’t staying on in the evenings, they will be finishing after the last dance class of the afternoon. I am able to contact the Pastoral Care contact a few days before the course starts and make support arrangements with them should they arise. They were fabulous with my child at the WL finals, really supportive and accommodating. It would be v helpful for me to help my child prepare to know more from the parent perspective, not just the official RBS information given. 😊 i have some idea of how organised RBS are as my child has done workshops with them at Covent Garden, so am hoping for more of the same on the Intensive. TIA.
  23. Hi, i was wondering if anyone knows anything on ballet upper school open days, as I could only find information for royal and tring?
  24. Just really wanting to understand how the Mid Associate auditions differ to the junior if anyone has any information. We would be looking at Manchester, I know its a bit soon (we just got DD no yesterday from JA) but I believe the applications open in September and I like to have an understanding so I can mull over the options during summer. Not sure if its something we should consider really, I know places are even more limited at this stage. Thanks
  25. I have one spare ticket Stalls c18 for the Royal Ballet School performance at Linbury on Wednesday 26th. Paper ticket. £20
