  1. Please ask questions about Upper School/6th Form auditions in this thread.

    Rambert - Ballet experiences please

    Hi all, I'd love some opinions on Rambert please. My dd is researching degree courses for Sept. 2019 and has always had Ballet West Scotland first on her list. However, she has recently discovered that Rambert have a degree course in Ballet and Contemporary which sounds perfect. Her goals are to eventually become a member of a Ballet Company with Contemporary under her belt. She does not want to go the Musical Theatre route, she is classical ballet all the way but she does enjoy contemporary. I would be so grateful to hear your views on this course and the school in general. We are not from the UK so funding and accommodation are mysteries to us!

    Laine and Rambert

    Dd is faced with a decision between Laine and Rambert. She slightly preferred Rambert, but employment prospects seem to be better for Laine (although mostly non-classical, they do have 3 graduates in the current run of Bourne’s Cinderella, including the lovely Cordelia Braithwaite). Does anyone on here have any experiences of Laine that they could share? Does anyone have any knowledge of Rambert graduate destinations in 2017? We are yet to hear from RCS - which may muddy the waters even further!
  7. Anyone know when this years auditions are? X
  8. As it says in the title : workshops, music, performance, yoga classes ... https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/shows/river-stage-rambert-2017
  9. I have sent an application form off for my DD to apply to audition at Rambert for sixth form. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to reply?
  10. I'm 19, and completely love ballet, I know I'm way to late to get into a company so I thought about teaching or pre-professional. I love the idea of the degree that Rambert offer as there is no upper age limit however it's 2 and 1/2 hours away from me. When I noticed EBS sixth Form but then I ruled it out due to it being 16-18. I would love to study dance full time. I currently do intermediate RAD and pointe but that's only 2 hours a week as that's all the ballet for my age my school offers. My question is, is there any point putting in the effort and auditioning if I'm going to be 19/20 by the time I start? Also if I did study dance, does the chance decrease of performing and teaching the older you get? I would of loved to if done it younger but we just didn't have the finances. Any advice would be sooo helpful as I'm stressing out Thanks
  11. Does anyone have experience of SS at Rambert School - good or bad experiences, please share.

  13. Whilst the ROH was resounding with the noise (as some say) of a new McGregor piece, Sadler's Wells was filled last night with a fine performance of Haydn's ever colourful The Creation, providing the motive force for Mark Baldwin's contemporary work for Rambert. This had been premiered at Garsington Opera back in the summer, using the same Gothic tracery screen, behind which sat an orchestra and chorus (the BBC Singers), with conductor (Paul Hoskins) and soloists visible in arched openings. So, on that foundation, and with Sarah Tynan, James Gilchrist and Neal Davie in front, the music was never less than assured. For his choreography, Mark Baldwin had elected to "go beyond pure interpretation and into the realm of pure dance." To my mind, he succeeded only in part, and I'm left uncertain whether contemporary movement is enough to sustain a work of this length - and there were moments when some very odd poses were being struck, surely of some significance to him, but rather lost on me. But, on the whole, it was worth seeing - and certainly worth hearing - and it clearly went down well with the audience.

    Is Rambert a good school?

    I went for an audition at Rambert at the beginning of March. They were interested in me and would hopefully like me to start there in September 2016, as I am too young for this year. I have questions about the school. 1. How many people apply for the school and get accepted? 2. What is the likelihood of becoming a dancer in the future if I go to Rambert? 3. What is the background? How does the school work? 4. Are there any scholarships or ways I could have a reduction in my tution, as I am an overseas student?
  25. Hi there! I'm new here and joined with the purpose of asking this question I'm a male dancer, just turned 18 and am on a dance course with my local college where I study contemporary and ballet with a mixture of Jazz and more commercial dance styles, and the odd urban/street things (an all rounded course really). I was late getting into dance, at about 15 I joined my first Ballet class and that's where my passion lies...I can get into urban and street style dance if needed for college but I much rather doing contemporary or ballet specifically. I wanted to dance all my life, but financial issues and the fact that whilst growing up the closest dance school was a 45 minute drive away held me back (that plus my father being dead set against me being 'girly' and doing *shock!* ballet!) I kept my passion by watching dance movies, and dance tutorials on Youtube and such and joining in with performing arts workshops in school. Now my lack of training having only been dancing for about 3 years or so now leads to the fact that I'm not exactly a perfect dancer and I have a lot of flaws in my technique that I try hard to batter out of me everyday. I do work hard in comparison to my the other students in college, as I put in extra time in the studio during lunch and break hours, as well as staying behind after hours. I've been auditioning for contemporary courses, and have successfully been accepted into a few now...however I wanted to keep my Ballet passion alive, and so took a chance and applied to Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary dance. I never thought I'd even get an audition...but I did and it's on January 27th which isn't too far off now... It would be my absolute dream to get in, it's the type of school I've wished to be a part of since being a young kid and since finally taking control of my own life and joining dance classes, it's all I've hoped for. But I'm starting to have doubts...for a number of reasons. I'm not a Ballet body type, far from it. I'm short, I'm fat. Luckily I have long-ish legs which are strong, but the rest of my body is just...urgh. I just feel like it might be a waste of the school's time, my time, my money and my self confidence, to audition for somewhere that I may not even stand a chance in. I feel like I have nothing going for me, I don't have the 'look' of a dancer and my technique is in serious need of hard training to get to the level of some of these individuals that have danced all their life. At the same time though, would I regret not going? And dwell on it all my life? So I come here with these questions off the top of my head: - Do Rambert expect a certain higher level of ballet training in their boys and if so, how much? - Do they look at body types and judge who they want according to that? I just feel like there's no use in me auditioning somewhere where I may be laughed out the room...but perhaps it's just me overthinking and letting nerves get to me. Thanks for reading!
