  1. We have a small RAD school , just over a hundred with 2 teachers . Class sizes are between 12 - 18 students. Intermediate has around 18 and Adv1 has 12. All students from grade 2 (average age 7-8) must take at least 2 ballet classes each week and they also take Lyrical, contemporary, Acro and tap ( non syllabus). Average time in a grade is a year. Some take less time , some a little more. Vocationals generally 18 months.
  2. Does anyone have any information/guidance regarding accommodation for Laines students going at 16 ? I know they like them to live with host families for the first year but do Laines sort this out or do we the parents have to arrange this ?. I know I will get this information soon but wondering if anyone has already been through this and knows the ropes .... Thank you

    Elmhurst auditions Sept 2017 entry

    Has anyone got Elmhurst finals for Year 9 girls. I have a disappointed student so just wondering how many they took through ? Well done to all those with finals and as everyone here says, a no doesn't mean the end. Keep trying x
  8. Hi Alison, Sorry you couldn't find any details. Yes the studios are really beautiful and yes it's crazy that a boys school has 3 dance studios all air conditioned, mirrored, barred and sprung !! We are very lucky to be the only dance school using their facilities. Trains to Eden Park from Charing Cross are the quickest and simplest route, but many buses stop just up the road too. All places are now filled with students coming from as far away as the Lake District. Really excited to welcome all the students x
