Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

It’s a hard one Lmum.
My DS didn’t get even a recall this week for the place he thought and hoped he was destined to go to, but got an offer from one he’s now excited to go to...weirdly there is something or someone looking out for them I truly believe it

The right place will snap her up x

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

Hi all, it’s been great reading and keeping up with this topic! Just wanted to ask some advice for Dd’s friend. Her mum is very unsure about her applying to do musical theatre at drama school and completely blanched when I told her it was £40-50 per audition, saying it was a ripoff! Obviously she w...

Re: When to apply?

we decided to go for the early dates, then if DS is down with the winter lurgy he has half a chance of being able to reschedule.
My DS wants it over with as soon as possible ;)

Re: 'Best fit' schools/colleges post 18?

Places like Arts Ed and Mountview don’t attend Move It or at least they haven’t when I’ve been there previously. It’s heavily geared towards dance. Lots of street and hip hop as well. My DS went a couple of times to touch base with Pineapple and Tring and do some dance and MT workshops but he hasn’t...

Re: Dance clothes for training - quantity?

I can assure you the Homebase rail is nothing like the Lakeland one. \:D/ here is a huge diffence between the power of a towel rail and a clothes dryer. A dance belt would take hours to dry on a heated towel rail. It depends what you want to use it for, the heat from the Lakeland one dries towels a...

Re: Dance clothes for training - quantity?

Ooh that’s an idea. I was looking at the heated surer for drying but they were quite expensive My DS has a heated rail dryer as tumble drying would kill his t shirts and dance belts, he would fry them :D Good point and there isn’t the time for them to air dry before he will need them again. I’ll ch...

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...
