Re: RADA Auditions

My Dd enjoyed her RADA auditions. She got to the third round but it was expensive - lots of money for train from South Wales and overnight accommodation :(. I suppose it wouldn't have been so bad had she got in :)

Re: Drama school or not? So confused!

Can I just add that you get far more than just contacts from drama training? You get a chance to explore and develop different ways to approach your craft.

Re: Dance and period pain

My DD went through this as well. It can really be debilitating; over the counter tablets had little effect on her. I remember her fainting a couple of times with the pain.

Re: I think we need a plan C

My DD did a level 3 BTEC and had between 20-22hours a week - generally 4-5 hours a day. This was only a few years ago. It was a good preparation for vocational training. Not surprisingly every year a lot of students got onto excellent courses in great colleges. My DD said that those who had done a l...

Re: singing lessons

If you attend a local concert you could ask a performer who their singing teacher is.
