Re: Dance clothes for training - quantity?

We had to get DS 5 x t shirts and vests
Also 5 dance belts as he dances and does cardio daily, however they have lasted well and he won’t need new ones this September.

Re: Low pay/no pay vs you have to start somewhere

You have to understand you don't get to know exactly what everyone does, so my impressions are put together by hearsay/fb/gossip and conjecture I seemed to me that this year more students had jobs by showcase (may) than had jobs by the end of year (july) for the last 2 years put together!! And good...

Re: Housing benefit for BTEC and Foundation 16-18

I started an application off in preparation for September as my DD will be on a Foundation Course. The answer came back that it would be Universal Credit that she applies for but it is too early at the moment to complete an application. I am guessing then that she will get called in to an interview...

Re: Seeds of doubt now

My ds didn't do A levels and went straight to Arts Ed to do the MT BA. He has been in work a lot of the time since (although there have been jobless times). He is currently in Heathers The Musical (not ensemble) and has actually never been ensemble so it is not true for your friend to say that. Onc...

Re: Seeds of doubt now

I think that’s a hideous text to send someone! My DS is academic - started off at 6th form and was thoroughly miserable. He ended up taking AS levels and moving to the AMAZING Emil Dale. We don’t regret a second, the only regret is not going at the beginning of the year and wasting 6 months. Your so...

Re: Auditioning for 2017

Believe me it’s just as frustrating for boys who have danced since the age of 6 excelling in jazz, tap and modern, and working their way up to intermediate ballet level... might as well not bother! I agree that with the sheer numbers of girls it’s really really tough for them, DS has some incredibly...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019 - 6th Form

Thank you for your reply as that's reassuring. I know it's becoming a very popular place and getting a great reputation. Sadly we're seeing Team Elle so will miss your ds. But good luck to him! DD now attends their Sunday afternoon school and we are certainly impressed with that, hence her wish to ...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019 - 6th Form

We are seeing Sweeney Todd on Sunday and Legally Blonde in May at EDA. Is your ds in either of those? My dd wants to audition there but we're not sure about funding and transport. Their production of Millie was really excellent. But two questions we have about EDA are - how do they group for classe...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019 - 6th Form

Beware of the academic trap over the performing route. My DS is also academic and would have achieved solid A level results, however he was miserable and unsettled taking A levels. A level route has always been our plan, yet he felt he had made the wrong decision not long after starting 6th form. lo...

Re: An agency for non-standard dance?

Have you researched some of the more specialist dance companies and troupes
That might be a way forward...
