  4. Tap grades at Hammond

    orchidblue , what an amazing showcase , it was well worth travelling the two and half hours to watch it , my daughter got a feel for the place and we even spoke to some of the students afterwards , congratulating them on such a fantastic show of work and wished them well in their next stage of their careers.

  6. "Taking the next step" competition

    Yes happy mum over 1300 applied , and they auditioned around 500 I heard. Well organised, someone phoned from the cbbc and spoke to my daughter herself and asked her some questions about herself ect bit like a mini interview, think it was to see how they came across . Best of luck to your ds if they apply .
  7. "Taking the next step" competition

    My daughter was lucky enough to get an audition last time , the video she sent in contained some ballet and modern dance to show her versatility, We got a phone call 3weeks later and was invited to the Cardiff audition , they send you prior to that a list of songs to choose from you pick your favourite three then they let you know which one has been chosen , once you have your song you let them know where you want it starting and finishing then they cut it for you and they have it ready at audition for you ,it's a minute long . My daughter really enjoyed the audition process as did I , was great to see how these programmes are put together , the whole day was filmed. My daughter was 2nd to last to dance that day there was about 135 there at audition. You have to get three yeses to get to next round of auditions , my daughter got two out of three so sadly didn't get any further but what an amazing day we had , everyone so friendly and supportive of each other .Do agree though with what someone else has said though regards acting and performance , thats what they appeared to be looking for but didn't know that at the time . Even though my daughter was not chosen to go through to next round she did appear each week on the open credits (she was the girl in a blue tutu ) so that was a bonus for her in her eyes . Good luck tonall who apply , we had a great experience

  9. Hammond school 6th form information

    Thank you it certainly does , it's been a stressful few weeks as she has had 3 offers of a place and has been really difficult choosing where to train as she has enjoyed all 3 places where she has auditioned but Hammond offers her the Alevels which she would like to do , so this is her first choice x

  12. Hi im new to the forums Just wondered if anyone already has a daughter/son already attending 6th form at Hammond who could help with some of my questions.My daughter has been offered a place in the 3yr diploma MT/Danve course She will be going to the dada funding later in the year .We did an outreach audition so not visited the school as yet but I have done a lot of research but just wanted a parents /child's point of view My questions are How much extra cost a year roughly would we expect to pay for extras like trips / exams ect Was it easy to find accommodation and roughly how much it could Costs a mnth (my daughter 16yrs old so would need to be homestay /landlady) These things will help me setting aside a budget for extra expenses Any other information you think as a parent I would need to know prior to hopefully her starting would be great too , as I'm a new parent adventuring into this dancing world ,
