Nothing other than a shameless proud mum moment - my ds has a place at Elmhurst in Y7 for September! Boarding is going to be a massive change for us but he's so excited. Just thought all of you who are spending hours, driving and waiting, with your dancing children might like to hear a success story of how it can pay off sometimes. smile

Huge congrats. There have just been some extra waiting list places confirmed this weekend - was it one of those?

Dd has done summer school there & loved it - it's not for her full time as she isn't what they are looking for & it's not what she's looking for but she's at another big 4 school.

Are you a member of balletcoforum? There is lots of support on there from others who are in the same position or have had dc who have give through the system in the past.

Thank you all, he's so excited. Yes balletgirlmum, he got a place from the waiting list. He's an Elmhurst associate so has done a couple of residentials in recent years and loves the school.

Ah, loveky to hear of a boy doing this.
Ds 3 went to White lodge, he's now 24 and a chef grin but he loved it at the time.
He still helps dd with her solos and can still do a massive grande jete!!
