  1. Good afternoon I am seeking help from parents with vocational students at 11+ upwards who are studying full time at specialist vocational schools - music, dance or musical theatre ......who have a diagnosed disability - mental health, anxiety, Asperger's syndrome, ASD, learning disability including dyslexia and dyspraxia etc. I am interested to find out the name of the institution and course or GCSE's etc, how support is provided, how it is funded - i.e. is the student in receipt of a DAD, MDS or privately funded, who pays, if anyone, for any specific support provided due to the disability. I am aware of the support available for students on degrees where Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) is available, but it is all the others from 11+ where a support need might be identified but not provided. I am undertaking this research as I am involved in the initial research prior to setting up a private company to provide this support through identified funding. Please respond via PM! All personal details will be kept confidential and the information provided used to underpin the knowledge gained to explore if the companies aims are sustainable and if the funding that has been identified would be suitable for students with disabilities in these situations. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. Heather aka Taximom

  6. Hello everyone, We are scientists from the Ruhr-University in Bochum in Germany and currently researching how athletes from different sports and at different proficiency levels differ in their personalities. We created a survey in which you are asked to characterize the typical athlete one meets in your sport and the ideal athlete for your sport. The survey takes about 20 minutes and as compensation, we will later inform you about the typical personality profile of your sport! Link to survey: https://bochumpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aUXD2hchsEOZ2N7?S=16 Feel free to share the link with other people of your/other sports! If you have questions, leave them in the comments and we will try to answer them. Thank you so much in advance!

  9. Hey! I am doing an important research project for school about ballet, and I need ballet dancers to answer a couple surveys! If you could answer them that'd be REALLY helpful. It only takes a couple minutes I promise! This one's for everyone, all genres and ages! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1vDac2aCMFGpA9Xzf7pjqNoDVdg_At43wpGF5uUC8JjA/edit And this one's for dancers who dance with pointe shoes! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1BfVFksNa-JCPFs77y5j_rSXe0RFXeRE1bEmj15dGRUU/edit
  10. Hiya, some of you might remember I posted a survey about Capezio as a brand, in particular the undergarment range. I've now finished the project and come up with new concepts and have created this follow up survey to see what the target audience think of them. So I would be very grateful if you could all fill this out please!! (You don't have to have done the previous survey) thank you!! please comment below if you have any further questions :') https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6GSR6XL
  11. Hiya, for my current fashion project i'm looking into how different brands promote and sell lingerie, my chosen brand is Capezio and I decided that Bloch is the biggest competitor. If anyone has any thoughts on the two and how Capezio could improve its lingerie section, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated Secondly, I'm wondering if anyone has any Capezio or Bloch packaging/carrier bags that they could photograph and send to me? I know Bloch used to do those massive canvas bags and I'm wondering if they still do? And I don't think I've ever bought anything from Capezio other than shoes that just come in a box, so I'd like to see what their bags and packaging are like too so I can consider this in my designs too. Thanks in advance!
  12. Hiya, if you've ever purchased anything from Capezio, can you please fill out this survey for my fashion research? It is anonymous and should only take about 5 minutes, thank you! http://freeonlinesurveys.com/s/3bpffTlm

  16. My name is Jacqueline Chinappi and I am a doctoral student with Capella University. I am contacting you in regards to recruitment of members from your online forums to be participants in the dissertation study. INFORMED CONSENT FORM Study Title: Body image perception examined: A comparison of ballet dancers with chronic skin disorders and ballet dancers without chronic skin disorders. Researcher: Jacqueline Chinappi Email Address and Telephone Number: jcataldo@capellauniversity.edu Research Supervisor: Brianna Eiter. Ph.D. Email Address: Brianna.Eiter@Capella.edu You are invited to be part of a research study. The researcher is a doctoral candidate at Capella University in the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences. The information in this form is provided to help you decide if you would like to participate in the study. The form describes what you will do during the study and the risks and benefits of the study. If you have any questions or do not understand something in this form, please ask the researcher. I ask that you do not participate in the study until the researcher has answered your questions and you have all of the information necessary to decide to take part in this study. WHAT IS THIS STUDY ABOUT? The purpose of the study is to understand the relationship between chronic skin disorder and body image dissatisfaction, particularly with ballet dancer population. In addition, stress, social support, and self-esteem will be evaluated in dancers who do and do not have chronic skin disorders as well as non-dancers who do and do not have chronic skin disorders. HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE IN THIS STUDY? About 111 participants will take part in this study. WHY AM I BEING ASKED TO BE IN THE STUDY? You are invited to be in the study because you fall into one of the four groups: Inclusion criteria for eligibility: Group 1: • Over 18 years of age • Ballet dancer for at least 5 years • Currently diagnosed with chronic skin disorder Group 2: • Over 18 years of age • Ballet dancer for at least 5 years • Not currently diagnosed with chronic skin disorder Group 3: • Over 18 years of age • Non-dancer • Currently diagnosed with chronic skin disorder Group 4: • Over 18 years of age • Non-dancer • Not currently diagnosed with chronic skin disorder If you are a person that fits within any of the above categories then you are eligible to participate in the study. All participants must be over the age of 18.If you do not meet the description above, you are not able to be in the study. WHO IS PAYING FOR THIS STUDY? The researcher is a doctoral candidate at Capella University, but is not receiving funds to conduct this study. The researcher will not be paid for conducting the study. WILL IT COST ANYTHING TO BE IN THIS STUDY? There is no cost to participate in the study. HOW LONG WILL I BE IN THE STUDY? If you decide to be in this study, your participation will last about 1 hour. WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THIS STUDY? You will sign an informed consent form detailing the study. After completing the consent form you will be redirected to an online survey to: • Provide personal information about yourself such as age, gender, amount of years diagnosed with chronic skin condition, amount of years dancing. • Complete surveys about body image, stress, social support, and self-esteem. WILL BEING IN THIS STUDY HELP ME? Being in this study will not help you. Information from this study might help researchers help others in the future. ARE THERE RISKS TO ME IF I AM IN THIS STUDY? No study is completely risk-free. However, we don’t anticipate that you will be harmed or distressed during this study. You may stop being in the study at any time if you become uncomfortable. You should be aware, however, that there is a small possibility that responses could be viewed by unauthorized parties (e.g. computer hackers because your responses are being entered and stored on a web server) WILL I GET PAID? You will not receive anything for being in the study. DO I HAVE TO BE IN THIS STUDY? Your participation in this study is voluntary. You can decide not to be in the study and you can change your mind about being in the study at any time. There will be no penalty to you. If you want to stop being in the study, tell the researcher. WHO WILL USE AND SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT MY BEING IN THIS STUDY? Any information you provide in this study that could identify you such as your name, age, or other personal information will be kept confidential. No names will be used within the study nor will any names need to be provided in the surveys. All answers within the survey will be completely anonymous. In any written reports or publications, no one will be able to identify you. The researcher will keep the information you provide in a password protected computer in the researchers personal office and only the researcher, researcher’s supervisor, and dissertation committee will have access to the study data. Additionally, Capella University’s IRB, the Research Compliance Committee (RCC), or its designees may review your research records. Even if you leave the study early, the researcher may still be able to use your data. For example, if a survey is submitted with some questions left blank the researcher can still use the data that has been submitted. Limits of Privacy (Confidentiality) Generally speaking, the researcher can assure you that she/he will keep everything you tell him/her or do for the study private. Yet there are times where the researcher cannot keep things private (confidential). The researcher cannot keep things private (confidential) when: • The researcher finds out that a child or vulnerable adult has been abused • The researcher finds out that that a person plans to hurt him or herself, such as commit suicide, • The researcher finds out that a person plans to hurt someone else, There are laws that require many professionals to take action if they think a person might harm themselves or another, or if a child or adult is being abused. In addition, there are guidelines that researchers must follow to make sure all people are treated with respect and kept safe. In most states, there is a government agency that must be told if someone is being abused or plans to hurt themselves or another person. Please ask any questions you may have about this issue before agreeing to be in the study. It is important that you do not feel betrayed if it turns out that the researcher cannot keep some things private. WHO CAN I TALK TO ABOUT THIS STUDY? You can ask questions about the study at any time. You can call the researcher at any time if you have any concerns or complaints. You should call the researcher at the phone number listed on page 1 of this form if you have questions about the study procedures.

  17. Hello everyone, I’m a researcher working at the Dance Lab at the university of Hertfordshire in collaboration with the charity Dance UK and Trinity Laban. Together, we’re looking to develop a resilience toolkit for dancers to help them become more resilient to the everyday challenges of professional training. In order to look at elements of performance we're asking what does it mean to be a successful dancer or successful within the domain of dance. What does being successful in dance mean to you? Thanks so much in advance for your input!
  18. Hello everyone, I’m a researcher working at the Dance Lab at the university of Hertfordshire in collaboration with the charity Dance UK and Trinity Laban. Together, we’re looking to develop a resilience toolkit for dancers to help them become more resilient to the everyday challenges of professional training. We’re very much in the early stages of research but I was wondering if those of you who have been in professional training or are currently undergoing it would be able to tell me what aspects of dance training you find stressful. Thanks so much in advance!

  21. Hello. Would anyone be kind enough to answer some questions I have about the full-time courses at the Royal Ballet School for ages 16-18? I'm actually a writer, and would like to know this in regards to a character I'm writing. It doesn't focus on her time at the school, she's not the main character, and most of these points I don't actually have to address in the work itself; but I would like to know them for my own understanding of the character, and I really like to get details right. So I'd really appreciate any help anyone would be kind enough to give me. Thank you very much!! My questions are: 1. It says on the RBS website that the courses at Covent Garden are three years long and begin in September. Is this the same as a university course, meaning it would begin in September 2014 and finish in summer 2017, with term breaks in the summer, etc.? If so, what month exactly does the course end in? 2. What sort of training background would someone need to have had to be accepted to one of the full-time courses for 16-18 year olds? Provided someone had been studying ballet from a young age and were an exceptional dancer, even if they'd had no training at anywhere prestigious before applying, is it possible that they could be accepted to the school? I would also like to ask if anyone knows how different procedure at the school was back in the mid-1970s? What I'd like to know is: 3. Were the full-time courses for 16-18 year olds still offered then, were they the same length as they are now, and did they give academic training alongside their dance training back then the same way they do now? 4. Were scholarships still offered then with the same or similar conditions as they are now? 5. Does anyone know what teacher training courses they offered back then – are they similar to the ones they offer now? I'm especially interested in the Course in Ballet Education Practice. In fact, any information about becoming a ballet teacher in the mid-70s would be really helpful, even if it doesn't involve the RBS! Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, and I'd very much appreciate any help anyone would be kind enough to give me!
