Spirit or Stagebox ?

Which is the better training? Looking for 9 year old. In London. Very strong singer and actor, not a strong dancer. Passionate about musical theatre.

Re: Should I change DS training and agent or not?

Grade 3 LAMDA is incredible high for a 9 year old. LAMDA used to have minimum age requirements and they recommended a minimum of age 11 for Grade 3. Going higher would mean a bit of a conflict between his age, maturity and the type of repertoire they are expected to perform. What does concern me th...

Re: Should I change DS training and agent or not?

He’s 9 and what’s should be relaxed for both of you doesn’t appear so. Exams like LAMDA etc and grades I believe are Really not important in the grand scheme of things, colleges don’t care or ask what LAMDA you have spent a fortune on. And I class myself as spending a fortune for my son and his exa...

Should I change DS training and agent or not?

My DS is 9. His acting and singing is his world. Currently at school he is doing his ABRSM singing as well as conducting lessons. After school He does his LAMDA Musical theatre. He has just completed Grade 3 and has had distinctions all three times. During his LAMDA class, the teacher hardly ever he...

Re: How should I help DS go forwards?

With respect to West End shows, he's not too tall for School of Rock, the dance in that isn't too difficult and they do cast 9-year-olds in ensemble, so that might be one to try (unless that is one of the WE shows he's already done, of course!). I wondered reading your post whether perhaps your DS ...

Re: How should I help DS go forwards?

Although it is not so glamorous, why not try for local shows and panto, they are still great learning experiences and maybe take a break from the film/tv until he feels more inclined to do it. If he is not enjoying the process right now it might put him off for good, which will be a shame as he sou...

Re: How should I help DS go forwards?

Can you afford fees and boarding? If he wants to concentrate on just acting then The Hammond has a Lower School drama course where they only have to do one class a week of dance (and its basic movment dance, their actual dancers are on a separate course) but it is in Chester so quite a long way fro...
