Dance clothing for auditions

Just wondered what the general feeling is about this ... If your DD got through first selection round on the strength of a movie sent where they were looking a certain way with clothes and hair and makeup would you stick with the same look or wear something different ? My gut feel is to look the sam...

Re: Pointe Shoes

Another vote for Dancia in Drury lane if you do head to london. They seemed to have huge stock and a range of brands and have been really thorough with fitting. Obviously I can't comment on your local shop but just the service and experience great at Dancia :) no appointment necessary either as they...

Re: Starpower dance comp

That's fantastic!! Good luck to you and hope you have an amazing time :) We worked out a minimum cost per child which included funding the dance teacher and two chaperones but there was no way we could get our act together in time. Would be fab to see a UK team do well ... Fingers crossed for you Ha...

Re: Starpower dance comp

Quite a few genres I think including hip hop, lyrical, contemporary (they are the ones we are in)

The timetable is out now and we are there both days

Re: How long between dance exams?

I think 2 years (age 8 to 10) approx for rad grade 3 might be about right but rather than look at terms and timescales it can be usefully to look at hours. I think on the rad website it recommends something like 60 hours per grade so did you daughter do one or two classes a week? The ISTD seems a bi...

Re: Starpower dance comp

We are doing this for first time too this year and very excited. My dd is convinced it will be like an episode of "Dance Moms".

I searched for starpower uk on youtube and those videos looked a bit less scarey than the USA çompetitors :)

I also think that nerves and anxiety will depend on what she's done previously on stage such as shows. Has she done much on ...
