Re: Where would I find a ballet summer school?

Thanks I guess that is the way to go

We will see how much she remembers & how fast she catches up

She has plenty of 'everything else' at least all I can cope with dance wise

Re: Where would I find a ballet summer school?

She gave up 2 years ago (still does lots of other dancing), but has realised (from her) she needs to take it up again.

Where would I find a ballet summer school?

Does it even exist?

My daughter (13) needs some fairly intensive ballet training to bring her up to standard; we are in Norfolk (if it matters)

Thanks

Re: Mum without a clue

Great!

Mind you we have a good deal for as long as it lasts; a friend is doing it in exchange for something unspecified (probably some performing & some meals)

Re: Mum without a clue

Gosh so much information

I'll get google out later to see what some of you are talking about

She says she will do some acting & has suggested a week long ballet course in the holidays so she can catch up (just like that)

Now I just need to find one

Re: Mum without a clue

She is very unimpressed at the more drama & ballet

Re: Mum without a clue

She is dance, followed by music/singing, followed by drama; I think

But her dance is very varied

Re: Mum without a clue

Look at Cuban salsa/Brazilian samba workshops; we have loads here & a big charity day at Whitsun (you just missed it or I would invite you; Norfolk is great for a long weekend) The university isn't exactly a decision, more a "I'm not sure doing performing Arts at Great Yarmouth college instead of A ...
