  3. Only my opinion, as our problems surfaced much later, but if his emotional well being is being compromised by being away from home , maybe bring him home, let him continue to dance locally and with an associate programme and look to going away again at 16 ,when he will be more mature and possibly more in a position to know that this really is the life that he wants. Best of luck with it all.

    Laine and Rambert

    We know of a recent Laine graduate now dancing in 42nd street - the more versatile the dancer , the more chance of work. Classical contracts are like gold dust whichever school you graduate from.All the best and congratulations to your daughter.

    If any of you are lucky enough to be within striking distance of this amazing opportunity please do seize it .... Emma offers an environment and approach that will allow your DD/DS to flourish and achieve their potential - Emma will have total belief in your child - imo that is far more important than the Kudos of attending a big name ballet school, where you, the parent, is a lone bye stander to the regime your child has signed up for, where your child might be struggling physically/mentally without you ever knowing .... before it's too late.. As a parent, I come across Emma when my DD needed help - It is my belief that had my daughter met Emma and trained with her from an early age, then she would now be following the career that she dreamed of. I cannot recommend her or this opportunity highly enough. Wishing you the very best of luck Emma - it is your time to shine..

    Reading this blog has catapulted me back into the nightmare that is vocational school , when things go wrong ..... more wine needed !!
  13. if this is still available I'd love to take it
  14. I would definitely go look and attend an open day - Paul , Ray and Gail are wonderful people. Your dancers will be in good hands both technically and most importantly the pastoral care is strong.
