  2. Hello, I haven't posted here for a while. My oldest dd is 18 and at a crossroads. Brief background - she started ballet at 3 and picked up modern, tap, jazz and a bit of contemporary over the years. Dance has always been part of her life and it's extremely important to her. She did consider taking it further a while back but she didn't think she was good enough and lacked in confidence. She was at Abbots Bromley for Sixth Form which she loved. She got her BTEC with top grades along with A Level English and secured a place at Birmingham to do English, having decided
  3. Dear Friend Are you, or someone you know, looking for a coach to help you make 2020 the best year ever. In January 2020, I have capacity for four new UK clients. Does the following strike a chord with you? You are smart, qualified, experienced, usually have a good game, and yet there are side issues you need to talk about and resolve. There are things you know you can probably do even better, and you are ready to talk and reflect on dance, business, problems, and life. In my experience, you’ve been thinking about engaging a coach for some time,
  4. As New - the original Flexistretcher - bought for £65, selling for £40 WHY FLEXISTRETCHER IS DIFFERENT - Unlike stiff nylon straps or flimsy elastic rubber stretch bands, the Flexistretchers resistance has been measured carefully to provide progressive stimulus to the muscle without sacrificing control. You will not find this combination of stretch and support found in any other product. The unique design allows it to be used in full body stretches such as arabesque but with its full adjustment can be used on smaller body parts such as hamstrings and shoulders. THE FLEXISTRE
  5. My DS had been doing ballet for 4 years and wants to be a professional dancer and for us vocational training at year 7 wasn't an option he's now in year 8 were thinking of auditioning for a year 10 place or sixth form place. His current dance school has been great but has little experience with boys they are heavily focussed on girls and in particular at his age and grade the girls going on Pointe so they now have extra lessons and he's now down to 3 hours a week. How many hours should they be training at this age? How do I find somewhere to help him progress and push him to his his full poten

  7. Hi guys, Hope this is ok to start but I could do with a boys thread to refer to. DS is 11, and has been dancing for nearly two years, his fave is ballet but also does tap and jazz. I’m getting a bit cheesed off at not being able to find anything for him. Bought new tap shoes today and ended up in ladies yet again!! (He’s a 4). I try to get things made when I can find and afford them. His ballet bag came from the USA and I’m so tired of googling “freed Aaron” like it’s the only leotard he’ll ever find. Can anyone point us in a direction of nice boys stuff? Good workshops, a

  15. Hi all, firstly, if one does not get into RBS or Elmhurst, does that mean that a classical ballet career is impossible? They say they take those with potential, so am worried, as I got into neither this year i got into the Moorland School weekly Saturday associate programme though, which I'm delighted about, and have two more auditions for monthly Sunday associate programmes. I'm also going to a BRB ballet thing, and a great summer school for 2 weeks. However, I can only do up to 2.5 hours of ballet at my dance school, as some of you know, and I am desperate to become a ballerina one

  20. Hi there, I'm living in Ireland and have two years left in secondary school, so I'm starting to look at possible colleges to audition for in 2016. I'd like to train as a contemporary dancer, but would prefer to go to a college that would also give me a strong ballet base. Although I am interested in and enjoy performing most modern and contemporary dance styles, I love more ballet influenced choreography, and watching contemporary dancers who clearly have a strong ballet technique (like the dancer of Nederlands Dans Theater!) I was wondering if anyone knew of any schools that would be
