Does anyone know the costume protocol? I'm assuming you would wear something in line with professional performance choices for your selected variation and whatever you feel fits your solo. I noticed on RAD site that a row of dancers were wearing leotards and practice tutus. Are the practice tutus worn for the class?

Would also be interested in any insights to the day - do the dancers watch each others' variations and solos and is it generally a supportive, friendly event? Thanks.

Thank you I have all these details, Like Karen I was wondering about costumes and other people's experiences.

If I remember right it was a tutu skirt for the classical variation - I think you could choose a longer skirt if you were doing other variations.

The solos were not watched by the other candidates a few years ago - they entered the room one at a time to perform to the audience and panel.

It was a lovely day and a worthwhile experience :)

Please could any of you knowledgeable ballet lovers point me to a you tube (or similar) link to the Sleeping Beauty Diamond Fairy variation - variation 4 diamante 2/4 time G major. It's one of the PB classical rep variations and I am unsure which piece it is. Thank you very much.

 

Edited to say it's Act 3 no. 23.
