Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

Although tricks and flips look impressive in the real world of musical theatre are they really necessary!!! My dd has left Urdang now and is working! She has never once been asked if she can trick in an audition so I wouldn’t get too hung up on it if it’s not your child’s thing! After all it’s dance...

Re: After graduation....

Couldn’t agree more! And how quickly those three years pass! You do sit back and relax for a few years and then suddenly year 3 is suddenly upon you! But the delight when your dd bags her first job is overwhelming! After graduating from Urdang in June dd is currently living the dream in Miami! Rehea...

Re: Auditioning for SEPT 2018

Just a heads up to anyone going to Italia Conti there’s a big article in the mail today about financial misconduct!! Not 100% sure of the ins and outs but I would be asking questions if my dd was going there

Re: Auditioning for 2017

My dd was offered a dada at Urdang after her funding audition and there were still further auditions after that date.

Re: Auditioning for 2017

My dd is in her 2nd year at Urdang and absolutely loves it :D
She'll be performing in the ballet and tap at the open day. I found it a really good open day when we looked around.
Good luck to Z 2girlsmum xx

Re: Auditioning for 2017

I would advise finding a singing teacher who also plays piano, just so your dd has chance to practise with a pianist. Most of the colleges also stipulate how long the song should be or how many bars they want so you can cut the music to the right length prior to the audition. Good luck x

Re: DADA's

Great thank you, I was panicking as I'm self employed and haven't done my tax return yet but we don't get maintenance so should be ok :D

Does anyone know! Once you are in receipt of a dada do you have to provide income details every year

Re: Auditioning for 2016

These are different to the letters sent out last year, so maybe just needs pointing out to Urdang that the letter is not written well and is a little misleading! Although I have a friend who was offered foundation straight out so not sure if different letters are been sent to different people. Howev...

Re: Auditioning for 2016

Hi Jaylou62
We had exactly the same letter last year, we accepted the place and were offered a dada around the beginning of June I think.
I think with Birds they keep most of their funding back until all the auditions have finished.
Good luck x
