LilBalletDancer1993 Posted July 12, 2008 Report Share Posted July 12, 2008 Wow, it's been ages since I was last here!! Well, a good couple of months... Anyway, I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but I didn't know where to put it!! I'm currently in Year 10 at school, so as of September I will be in Year 11, which in the UK is the year when you do your auditions for the Ballet Upper Schools (like Royal Ballet, Elmhurst etc.). I'd be happy just to go to a school to dance, but my dear mother is having a bit of a fuss because a girl from my dancing school went to London Studio Centre this year but has had to leave because she has bad knees, and can't go to sixth form at a normal school because she hasn't been doing A Levels. This has opened my mothers eyes to the (what I already knew) all too possible chances of something going wrong with ballet training, and has made her a bit more interested in the academics offered at the ballet upper schools. She wouldn't stop me going to a school if I got in just because it didn't have academic classes, but for some reason she wants to know which ones do, or what sort of academics are offered (if not A Levels) at the different schools. Does anyone know? I know a lot of this site is US based, but I just thought it was worth asking because there really is a wealth of knowledge here lol!! Byeee_LBDxXx Quote Link to comment
