Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

I am genuinely interested in people’s thoughts because it’s not a small amount of money to be spending. I agree about the training being equal, but i’m not sure that the performance aspect doesn’t matter. RoseTowers4 - this is sort of what I meant. Everyone there has been good enough to get into Spi...

Re: Spirit or Stagebox ?

Wondering about the auditioning for solo lines etc. How do people feel about paying the same (considerable) cost for training if their child never gets one of the lines or isn’t even considered. I have noticed this particularly with Stagebox - often only a few children are featured and some children...

Re: Stagebox London offers

They said everyone would hear either way by Friday and that if you had not heard you should email them. I definitely would.

On-line schooling

Does anyone have any experience of on-line schooling for secondary age? InterHigh etc. I am at the very beginning of considering this for various reasons. I know that some performing arts children do this to free up time and increase flexibility, hence me asking here. No SEN, reasonably bright and s...

Re: Self tapes?

Thank you so much for replying. I had not seeen the video you linked so have now watched that and a few others. I think we are mostly doing it right! I never expected her to be recalled or get everything that she is sent for, but it did seem that the self tapes are not right. However, maybe they hav...

Self tapes?

We are fairly new to the agency / casting business, but I have noticed an emerging pattern and wondered if this is usual. At face to face castings / auditions she has consistently either got the part (yay!), had a recall or been called back in and given excellent feedback from the director. All good...

Re: Clueless! What classes to do?

I don't think 4 is too early! I would do some research and get her into a dance school with high standards and a good reputation and stick with them. . Best way seems to be by word of mouth, but you could also go and watch the show cases / dance competitions if that's your thing. Have a look at thei...

Re: Stagebox audition

I think one of the reasons you may be struggling for information is that, until this round of auditions, there was only a Development Team in Leeds / Harrogate. The others are new and, from what I have gathered on here, look to be organised differently. It looks like a new venture to everyone.

Re: Stagebox audition

One Stop Box in Leeds is 5.30 - 8.00 on Mondays. I think you did used to be able to pay per (holiday) workshop, but you still have to do all 5 weeks. You can't really opt out by paying per workshop unless you do a city swap if you see what I mean. The only option this time was paying monthly as far ...

Re: Stagebox audition

Only a handful of boys. I would estimate that the Development Team is roughly the same size as the Elite Team.

Re: Stagebox audition

My DD is in the Elite Team. It is definitely 25 of each.

Re: Stage Box Elite

There was a thread about this last time they held auditions which you might be able to find. My DD is in the Elite Team. She loves it. In my opinion there is nothing even remotely comparable near us. It is expensive, but my DD has already had opportunities and successes that I would not have thought...

Re: Savoy Theatre- Stephen Mear & Nigel Lilley: Stagebox Open Audition Call

Could not agree more. We are only just beginning our Stagebox journey but have found everything you have said to be true so far. The only thing is.... It's so good we don't want everyone finding out about it! The cost is comparable to other courses. There is nothing hidden as far as I am aware. Noth...

Re: Stagebox Leeds

Thanks, Jomist. That is good advice. I do want to know as much as possible beforehand though so I know what she is getting in to ( or not, as he case may be!) am thinking of it more from the point of view of her getting so much out of it, rather than it leading to other auditions for now. You are ri...

Re: Stagebox Leeds

Thank you for your reply. How exciting for your DD! When did she audition? Can I ask you what she had to do and how many children there were there in relation to those who joined? I have emailed through them through the website, but haven't had a reply yet. Do you think I should phone? I am very con...
