Young British Dancer of the Year
Posted 10 April 2002 - 08:51 AM
Anyway, here goes...
I'm entering The Young British Dancer of the Year on Sunday, April fourteenth, and it's the heat. I was just wondering if anybody has ever antered before, and if they could tell me about the day, what I should expect, because I'm new to the competition. Thanks!
P.S Ms.Leigh- I am SO sorry if it is not appropriate to post this here, but from what I understood ( or not the case may be ) I thought it was o.k now )

This sounds like a junior-level national competition similar to Youth America Grand Prix here in the US. In other words, SURE you can post this here! Unfortunately, I don't have advise from the competitor's perspective but I bet that some of our members who've competed in YAGP (or their parents) could offer some words of wisdom!
I'm especially happy to hear from someone who is entering a competition in the UK, as there seems to be a misconception in some circles that ballet competitions are 'not the English thing to do' or 'Madam would be turning in her grave' etc, etc, to think that English dancers are entering competitions. Of course, reality tells us that English (or English-trained) dancers do enter & often win competitions, especially at the pre-professional level (Prix de Lausanne, for example).
Good luck & please let us know how you fare. At the very least, I'm sure that it will afford you valuable experience for "the competition of life"!
Any ex-competitors (or parents) have any advise for Twinkle-RBS-Gal?

As these last two posts were off-topic for Young British Dancers, I took them off and tried to figure out where to put them where they might do the most good right now, and decided to put them right back where I found 'em!
Don't be timid about opening up original threads - new members can do that from post #1! No Probation required! Just take awhile and nose around all the different things we have here, and play with all the bells and whistles. You'll catch on quickly, I know, to all the different places to discuss things.
