Just a question on the subject of EYB auditions too- when I auditioned in Wolverhampton last year, although we did do a whole ballet class for the audition, 2 enchainements were shown in smaller groups. Both of these were petit allegro: one sur place, with sautes, echappes etc, and a travelling enchainement of glissades, petits jetes and assembles. These enchainements seemed really like the only opportunity to be 'noticed' as opposed to the rest of the audition where all 150 auditionees danced at the same time. So, if anyone else has auditioned at different venues, is it always the petit allegro that is shown in groups of 4 or 5 dancers at a time? Because petit allegro most definitely is one of my weaker elements, and so if the main 'decision making' is based upon that, i might decide to leave it this time with regards to auditioning!!! Thanks, hope I've made some sense!! ;)

Yes, I remember what you mean now :-) But my original question referred to how, after centre-barre, adage and pirouettes, everyone in the audition danced an allegro enchainement in groups of 4 or 5. (It was then after everyone had danced that the few being considered for scholarships were asked to dance again.) So, when everyone in the audition does the same enchainement; in smaller groups- is this always a petit allegro combination as opposed to an adage, for example? Hope this clarifies my question, sorry if I was unclear!

When my DD did EYB a few years ago, even though there was 130+ on stage, the combinations were done all together. However the front row kept moving to the back, so that they saw each line at the front. Hope I've explained this ok. LTD
