Re: 'Best fit' schools/colleges post 18?

Emil Dale Accademy have introduced a degree course starting from this year, with access to student finance. It’s triple threat with syllabus written specifically for them. Definitely worth considering.

Re: 'Best fit' schools/colleges post 18?

Unfortunately I don’t think I can give you any advice, but I’m so glad you posted this as we have the same dilemma (year 9 dd and I). Following with interest x

Re: Just looking for some reassurance/advice

I totally agree with what’s been said, as I share all feelings. My dd is in year 9 and got very close to being cast in WE shows several times, she got in 1 professional production and had quite a few leading roles locally over the years, and others which she thought she would get but didn’t. She is ...

Re: What to do when parents are unsupportive?

Aah, that’s fantastic, I’m sooo glad it’s worked out in the end, having their parents support is imperative for any child!

Re: What to do when parents are unsupportive?

I think your dd’s friend should have a serious talk to her parents and emphasise how much this is the career/path she wants to take and that not having their support brings her down and that she wants to take that risk. It is a worry for all parents as this industry is so unpredictable, but I believ...

Re: Talent inc

I have first hand experience of them, I would advise to stay away! I think I was the one that started a thread a few years ago, I agree with Caroline.

Re: Complete U turn!

I remember reading a similar post on here, I can’t remember under what section or title, sorry. I haven’t been in this situation so can’t comment from experience, but I’m of the opinion that if he wants to take a break, let him do so. I don’t think insisting that he carries on would make him want to...

Re: London college of music

Hi LiveTheDream, My DS goes to LCM. He's in the first year of the 3 year Degree course. Hes really enjoying it so far. He says the teachers are really good and he loves his lessons. Hes more of an actor singer than a dancer and although they do do dance i think the course is weighted more to actor ...

Re: What to do in Hitchin for 5 hrs!

Lotsolaffs you’re very welcome! For those thinking about walking from the station, there are different ways you can go, in my opinion this is the quickest route: as you come out of Hitchin station, keep on the right hand side pavement. Cross the road at the traffic lights (Tesco express on your left...

Re: What to do in Hitchin for 5 hrs!

There’s also a swimming pool close to the town centre if you’re that way inclined. Walking from the station (via Ransoms park shortcut) takes about 15 minutes, I do it with my dd twice a week in the evening, so it’s doable. Walk into town is about half an hour from Edsa and 15 minutes from the stati...

Re: KM Casting 11-16 year olds

The role for 11-12 was non singing. I have the impression the singing ones were for an older age group.

Re: The Degrees that earn the most

Thanks for posting this paulears, very useful information and yes I agree, very worrying! With ds who wants to study medicine and dd who’s heart is set on performing arts, I feel torn! I’ve always encouraged my children to follow their heart and do what they excel at and think will make them happy, ...
