Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

An update! Our DS finally heard from Laine yesterday that he has a DADA!!! We are so proud of him (and somewhat relieved) and are enjoying the celebrations this weekend. :D The guy one below him on the waiting list also had a yes this week so the Boys’ waiting list is now down to #5 (or later?) if ...

Auditioning for 2020 entry

Hi there, 2020 entry is coming!!
thought I would start a new thread as the 2019 thread is in full swing and coming to an end.
It has been a stressful process for all, and I know the new set of applications are or will be underway.
Here's wishing everyone the best of luck for their chosen training..

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 exam...

Re: Beginning dance training at 20?

My DS will be 19 when he starts at Arts in September. He ( so far ) appears to be one of the oldest, the bulk of his year will be 18. However I truly don’t feel your DD will be at a disadvantage at all, if anything a couple of years maturity can help with living away, organising work and life etc. ...

Emil Dale is not more 'dancey' time is split equally between acting,singing and dancing.
I second that, all three disciplines are given equal attention and all with great teachers.

Re: Scholarship audition not submitted - what do you do?

As heartbreaking as it is, I would lay this to rest and move on. If that is their reaction then that speaks volumes to me. You are a fantastic friend and will be there to support her. There are other opportunities and other options I’m sure, this one just isn’t to be. The more it’s pursued, the nast...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

DS has just been to his GSA recall and at the end of the panel interview after lunch was offered a place on the BA MT course!!! He is thrilled! We can't quite believe it tbh! We are so relieved! He's on singing recall for Arts Ed, 3rd round LAMDA, and MV foundation after being rejected for degree s...

Re: Which GCSE?!

Hi Ditzi, In my experience and only speaking for DS's school , the level of dance and drama was nowhere near or anything like his experience of training outside school. I wouldn't even call it dance , I would call it choreographed movement. Remember there are pretty much what you would call non-dan...
