Thank you for contacting me, it's great to hear from you and I'm pleased you found my website! You already have a great idea of schools to audition for, I would be happy to suggest more places. You did very well to make the finals at Royal, you clearly have lots of potential so it's always worth auditioning again as well as for other schools. There are a good range of vocational schools in the UK, like Elmhurst School for Dance and Central School of Ballet which are the most well known places to audition for ballet training in the UK.

If you are giving yourself plenty of options, then you can look at Tring Park School for Performing Arts which also specialises in dance. Outside of UK, there are also recognised schools such as the State Ballet School of Berlin and the Hamburg Ballet School just to name a few.

I hope the few suggestions here helps you and please do keep in touch!

Best wishes,
