New JA class London 12.15 Class 1 yr 5

Recommended Posts

Hi

Just wondered if there are any other parents on here that are about to start their child's new JA journey in Covent Garden in September?

 

Would be lovely to know in advance!

We are coming in from Ramsgate so no fast train until Ashford, glad our train is not as early as yours!

Do you know how many places are available each year group compared to how many audition?

Really hard finding this out?

Congrats to the new JAs they will have a brilliant time! Regarding the numbers who audition, you can use last years annual report as a guide. In 2014, 294 girls auditioned for London JAs and 28 were offered a place. 45 boys auditioned and 15 were given a place. A great achievement!

Hello tinkerbell!!

We will see you there then!

 

We have received the new leotard, I had to buy a size 1, no zeros available and it just looks so dreadful as way too big for her. Has anyone got this problem?

Do JA leotards come from IDS?

 

If so I would call them direct rather than go on the website & explain & request a size 0. They manufacture First Position themselves so shouldn't be a problem

Loislane - I'm afraid the JA leotards are not flattering - they are not very stretchy and often baggy on the slim girls in question. (They're the same as the BBO G1-3 leotards. ) My dd always needed one that was way too baggy to get the necessary length ;(and these are girls with short bodies) - don't worry too much as I'm sure others will be in the same situation. .....

Hi, I phoned IDS as suggested and they do have size zero's with the printed backs in stock!!! The lady was unaware that size 1 was smallest size offered on-line so she will swop it for me ???? on the other hand, the track suit sized 9-11 looks enormous so that needs to be swopped too!

Yes, we are taking one. My daughter has to have one for her regular ballet class anyway so we already have one.

You can get them online quite easily though! x

My dd was told to bring a large white towel last year and they all use these instead in her JA class. Good luck on her first day x
