Re: When you are too tall for theatre... where do you go? Screen??

Hi, you probably know far more by now but I suggest you don’t think only of short term childhood opportunities that he is too tall for. Concentrate on his training and improving his dance. Being passionate about music and continuing with that will help as well and allow future opportunities. In the...

Re: Offers at 18 compared to offers at 16

My son is just finishing up his first year at ArtsEd on the degree pathway. He spent his sixth form at Emil Dale, well he did the old AS levels. He started his A levels and was so unhappy it was quite heartbreaking. He saw his friends at PA colleges full time improving and felt he was stagnant. He s...

Re: Auditioning and 18th birthday celebrations

It’s not always all over by Easter, so many variables and differences in colleges. Plus you haven’t said which ones you are looking at. Why don’t you postpone the NYC trip and go and celebrate once offers come in and she can relax properly? We didn’t plan anything when DS was auditioning for college...

OMG! An EDA black box arrived today for my DS. Audition on Monday. What an amazing Christmas present. 6th form BTECH. So so happy for him.
Congratulations! My DS did so well there for 6th form, a true family but very fierce training too!

Really never wanted to be letting my son go off at just gone 16 but I can’t tell you how pleased we are that the decision was made.
What a 6th form!
Fantastic!

Re: My IP has been banned

Me too
If I log in during a work break on my mainframe it’s permanently banned.
Not too much of an issue but wondered why.
Admin is on a retreat at the moment but I’m sure she will take a look then she’s back.

Re: Best time to apply for Sept 2020

My DS applied for the earliest ones he could Mainly because he gets a few heavy colds over winter so if he was ill, there was half a chance of being able to rebook onto a later date. I can certainly recommend applying for early dates for Arts Ed, they accept and offer as each audition date happens, ...

Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

Thank you Riverdancefan. I probably shouldn’t have named kids, apologies if I made you or anyone else uncomfortable. I think the easiest way to explain things is that with the audition only workshops the students generally audition to join them and then audition again for the solos. No problem at a...

Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

A lot of the girls in DD’s Spirit group are working professionally as well - of the 12 in her current group, 5 of them are cast in west end roles at the moment. My DD has recently finished a WE run and is currently filming. So, quite often you can work towards a piece, have a main solo and then fin...
