Re: 2021 Graduates!

Where is your DD based Marissa? I think a lot of them have to take the plunge to move towards London, as if an audition comes through, it is often with very little warning!! South Wales!!! It’s her plan to move closer to London sooner or later. But she has a few other bases and is quite prepared to...

Re: 3rd year support

Re: AGENCY REPRESENTATION AT COLLEGE

My dd kept her agent while at The Hammond and finished with them last summer ready to look for a different agent and to be on spotlight.The school were happy as long as it didn’t interfere with lessons.

2021 Graduates!

Hi all, this journey for our dd and me as a mum has been a rollercoaster, from getting into a school ( all those auditions! ) to surviving a degree during Covid!

Re: 3rd year support

Ahh Thankyou both x Yes three years has passed. I really felt for last years graduates and didn’t think it could get any worse but this year has been so hard for them all. My dd has been incredibly lucky and now it’s just a waiting game. Dd had improved so much in her first year that it is such a sh...

Re: Has COVID changed your DC training/career plans?

Very interesting to hear about other people's dcs who we've been following longterm on here. Wishing everyone luck for the next 12 months. And fingers crossed for the whole industry. My ds went down the academic route after school and got a degree from Warwick Uni but has since done a dance diploma...

Re: Has COVID changed your DC training/career plans?

No, She's more determined then ever. DD will graduate this year and luckily she has been enjoying the film side more and more so that may be her adjustment. Right now she is isolating as three other musical theatre in her flat have covid. I'm absolutely gutted for her musical theatre dream but she h...
