  1. Hi sorry me again 😆 How often is clothes washing done in the boarding houses? Obviously they only need 1 blazer, coat, scarf etc but how many sweatshirts do they need? Thanks
  2. Thank you so much everyone. I guess it will always be a mystery but some great suggestions there.
  3. Thank you. He went on to become a chartered surveyor in the civil service so not particularly artistic.
  4. Thank You. Unfortunately I know little of my father's early life. He was 23 when he painted this and all I know of his time before that was he joined the RAF during the latter stages of WW2 and was shipped out to Canada to train and then he travelled a bit post war prior to returning to Dundee. He will probably have told me the story behind the painting but I will have been too young to fully appreciate it and take it all in. I'm fairly certain it was a design piece as part of a project so a brief may have been given, possibly pictures to work from or it may have been completely conceptual.
  5. Thank you. It's quite poignant in our house at the moment as my son (who was born several years after his death) is heading off to the Hammond in September to study ballet/dance.
  6. Hi Not sure if this is the right place to post but will start here anyway. My father painted this painting back in 1948 while studying at Dundee Art college. All I know is it is a design for a theatre safety curtain. I would love to be able to identify the ballet/ballets depicted if possible and thought here might be the best place to ask. I believe part of the painting is a scene from de Valois' 'Checkmate'. Thanks in advance.
  7. Wow! I didn't realise there were so few funded places available. I feel even more shocked and proud that DS was lucky enough to receive one. Totally agree with this and just want to say to all those DC, keep trying, never give up. It may not have been your time this time but it will be one day, just like DS ❤
  8. Does anyone know how many applicants vs MDS places there are at Hammond?
  9. Thanks again everyone. Loads of good tips there 😊
  10. Sorry I'm back with more questions. Trying to build up an idea of initial costs. Uniform Are the scarf and coat compulsory? I'm assuming they are as not listed as optional. Dance belts - are these covered by MDS? He currently wears Intermezzo boys thong back in age 10-12, but I think he needs a bigger size now - do they get washed during the week or will he need one for every day - also do they tumble dry these? Can't imagine them lasting long if tumbledried. Are there tried and tested brands anyone could recommend. Tracksuit - is this optional or required and is this covered by MDS as dance uniform or does it come under school uniform and to be paid for? Is there anything else on the lists that isn't required/compulsory. Also any other recommendations/advice about what to get/take or not bother with. Thanks Again - this forum is a godsend!! X
  11. Those of you that have MDS that have returned the form accepting your award, have you had any acknowledgement they've received your slip? Still got everything crossed for you @Bothballet
  12. I've seen a few posts about York Dance Scholars. That might be an option.
  13. Hope you have a busy weekend planned, they usually go quicker. At least it's an hour shorter to begin with 😉. The waiting is definitely the worst bit. Best of luck x
  14. We had our email last Friday morning for my son. Hope you hear soon x
