Came across this forum …. How lovely to share information and find new dance mums. 
My DD will be starting in JA1 class London September. 
The hair topic is a HUGE help as I never get this style right 🤯

Hello, 

My son is starting JA2 in Birmingham in September 😊, 32 classes. 

It would be great to know anyone else who is too? 

My DS will be in the same group. You’re welcome to DM 😊

Hi, newbie here.  My little one has been lucky enough to gain a place at Birmingham as JA1.  I was wondering if anyone could tell me what is the difference between JA1, 2 and 3?  

I believe JA1 will be a combined class of Y4 and Y5 girls. JA2 will be a dedicated boys class for all years, 4/5/6 combined. So JA3 is presumably the Y6 girls class.

Yes, @Lily Craggs our grouping is maybe just for Birmingham which seems to have been divided into 3 JA classes. I only discovered the other day that Birmingham will be putting all boy year groups together (JA2), whereas other centres sometimes have a dedicated Y6 class for the boys.

Skirt Length

I remember in our first day the girls had to put the skirts and kneel on the floor! The skirt was to touch the floor - no shorted and no longer 🤣

hips that helps 💗

Thank you. Hope my measurements are correct then!

I saw on a post yesterday that JA Manchester are moving back to Manchester City Centre! Such a shame, Centrepointe had fabulous Studios! Although do agree unless you had a car it was difficult to get to 🤣 where will the classes be now 😁

Hi, I'm not quite a newbie as my son danced with JA last year and this year my daughter will be joining him. But girls' uniform is a whole new ballgame!! I'd be interested in buying a JA character skirt if anyone has one for a tiny 21inch waist?

 

I'm interested to read some centres are now offering boys only classes. My son would love that but its not happening at our centre.

I have a basically brand new skirt I would like to sell. Would would fit a year 5/6.  If anyone is interested I will measure. 
 

it’s never been worn in class as she started in year 6 where Sept- March was basically technique and audition prep and then after that we went into the first lockdown. She wouldn’t part with it last year but happy to now.

Hi, are there any seasoned JA parents who could advise on if a towel or yoga mat is preferred for class, eg what do most children bring ? 
a mat seems like such a bulky item to bring. And if it’s a towel , what size ? 
many thanks

Depends on the teacher. When my daughter was a London year 6 JA with Miss Krapft she specifically said towel not mat we had an email before classes started with class specific details. She is now an MA and it is may and towel.

Just checking that no one else has received any further information about payment or the start of term? 

I’ve just emailed RB finance about this! We’ve received nothing either. I’m sure they’ll send them soon 😊

I am sure i read somewhere invoices will be sent in September. I know you can pay in full or in monthly instalments but i was wanting to know if you can pay in 2 instalments. I vaguely remember reading that somewhere you can pay in September and December but its not in the handbook. Unless its for another associate course. Hopefully we’ll hear soon. As its not long away, i hope you all your DC’s joining this year have the best time.
