Re: Beginning dance training at 20?

My DS will be 19 when he starts at Arts in September. He ( so far ) appears to be one of the oldest, the bulk of his year will be 18. However I truly don’t feel your DD will be at a disadvantage at all, if anything a couple of years maturity can help with living away, organising work and life etc. ...

Emil Dale is not more 'dancey' time is split equally between acting,singing and dancing.

Re: Scholarship audition not submitted - what do you do?

As heartbreaking as it is, I would lay this to rest and move on. If that is their reaction then that speaks volumes to me. You are a fantastic friend and will be there to support her. There are other opportunities and other options I’m sure, this one just isn’t to be. The more it’s pursued, the nast...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

DS has just been to his GSA recall and at the end of the panel interview after lunch was offered a place on the BA MT course!!! He is thrilled! We can't quite believe it tbh! We are so relieved!

Re: Which GCSE?!

Hi Ditzi, In my experience and only speaking for DS's school , the level of dance and drama was nowhere near or anything like his experience of training outside school. I wouldn't even call it dance , I would call it choreographed movement. Remember there are pretty much what you would call non-dan...

Has he not considered Emil Dale Academy?
My DS is a strong dancer too but he’s been pushed to his limits and improved 100% there.

Re: BA MUSICAL THEATRE COURSE FOR SEPT 2018

Hi Riverdance, I agree with you that the colleges do take who they want to take. I do feel however that when you talk about boys being accepted who have less "experience" than your son you really mean less talent. Many, many young people work for years to hone their skills etc. You may not agree th...
