Does anyone have experience of the National Youth Ballet? For boys? For young girls?

You may have more luck posting on the balletco forum onawhim. I'm linking to a recent thread but you can search for others or start your own. ... +%2Bballet

Extremely high standard and particularly difficult to get into for girls, I believe they have already held the auditions for 2016 season though.

First round auditions start in January 2016 for the 2016 season. There are several venues/dates for the first round. If successful you are invited to a final audition, which can last from a couple of hours to all day - depending how many parts/roles your DC might be suitable for and when and if they are successful. DD has several friends that have done this and found it a very worthwhile experience. During the actual rehearsal period, which takes the form almost of a summer school - time is not wasted as if they are not actually in a rehearsal they take dance classes so they are kept busy. I echo the advice to look at the other forum where you will find several threads on NYB and be able to get a lot more information.
