  1. Can I ask whether parents of young ballet students have had the opportunity of forming a received view about London Russian Ballet School? Our fourteen-year-old son is desperately keen on a ballet career and is very tall for his age. He believes, because male ballet stars in Russia tend to be tall, and indeed female stars do too, that he could follow in the footsteps of the likes of Xander Parrish, whose example has inspired him. But although the LRBS recruit students from overseas and from many far-flung parts of the UK and these students of course board, the school itself does not offer accommodation under its own auspices. So a young boy, away from home for the first time, would be living in a boarding house (which would be near the school apparently) on his own. And although the school says it recruits purely on ability, and grants are given according to potential, and that no student considered a good prospect would be disadvantaged financially by the fee regime, the school refuses to give out its fee structure. It says it depends on the course taken. This seems a bit mysterious to me. Is it unusual? We live a good five hours from London, and we now have the prospect of making a compulsory formal application and then taking our son up to London for a whole-day audition session involving two nights away, and then seeing how talented the school thinks our son is, without having any notion of the kind of fee we will have to pay in the end. It would seem strange to go through that whole process and only then discover the kind of financial commitment that is required. Of course other schools have no difficulty publishing their fees. What do people think about this, please?
  2. Hi, anyone know of any routes to try source accommodation for a 15 year old DD to enable attendance at ENBS Spring course - & possibly other things over next year too. Ideally to stay with another attendee so travelling to course with another/others. I cannot be there due to work commitments. As course is non residential I am trying all routes to make it possible.... have exhausted friends & family so am now asking the lovely Forum Family to see if anyone out there has the solution as am sure this is a common issue? Mobe thought I had was contributing to the AirBnB or similar cost of another dancing family booking accommodation or a commuting distance attendee whose family may have a spare room they would be happy to rent in bed & board basis? Hope it’s ok to explore this here... Thank you
  3. A few forum members have very kindly offered their advice re attending the Hammond, and as my DS is about to join year 7 - I thought it best to ask all of you (in the know) rather than aim lots of questions at any one person ???? Here goes : • do the boarding houses have Wifi ? • is it advisable to take a small laundry basket for his room? - not sure how laundry is collected. • are iPads / phones collected in at a certain time in the evening ? • do all boarders go home/leave the boarding houses on exeat weekends - or do some stay ? • are the children allowed their own snacks/tuck etc ? The list could go on ........ Sorry !! but DS has been asking a few questions & thought it would be nice to find a few answers for him (& me) and perhaps other slightly daunted DC & their parents. Thanks to anyone who can offer some pointers.
  4. Hello my name is Sabrina I need a room with cooking facilities from 15 to 28 July during ENB summer school. Can you help me?
  5. Hi, I am doing a summer course at ENBS this summer during the period 15-27 July. Looking for a roommate, ideally another student in the ENBS summer program. BR, Mathilda (age 16)
  6. 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!
  7. Dd has eventually made her decision and accepted her offer from Central so we are now looking at accommodation. I believe a lot of students stay at Liberty Living. Are there any forum members thinking of Liberty House which seems the closest to the school? All require sharing. Any insights into how you find a like minded roomie? I am quite stressed at the prospect of sorting this out as it's so important to get it right!
  8. Hi everyone, This summer (July 16-July 27) I’ll go to ENB summer course, there is someone that will take part to the summer course who’s looking for a flat to share in the school area?
  9. 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
  10. Hi, Currently looking for a budget friendly hotel for next weekend. DD attending ENBS Audition workshop on the Monday. We arrive at Gatwick late on Saturday, so any suggestions around Victoria Train Station area would be appreciated. Tried researching for hotels on Booking.com but with so many on the site it is challenging to know what's best. Appreciate any personal recommendations. Thank you
  11. Hi need some advice dd keen to audition for central & Elmhurst, feeling concerned that if offered a place how do they cope at 16 with cooking, cleaning etc as well as studies? Seems very young & surely at that age would need house parents for guidance, does anyone have dc at these schools? Thanks 🤔

  13. Does anybody have any first hand experience of this??
  14. Hello there, does anyone have any information about hosting houses in Tring please? My daughter has a day place and on the waiting list for a boarding one starting in September. She is 14 and we are not ideally commutable and I'm just exploring if this would be an option, possibly not a full week away but at least 3 nights a week. Any help or advice would be most appreciated. Thank you
  15. Hi my daughter starting Hammond 6th form in September and wondered if any one can pass on any information regards Accomadation , not had a list from Hammond as yet but sure it won't be long before we do , if anyone has been through the process of having to sort out Accomadation for Hammond any info will be great thanks
  16. I’m looking for accommodation for my daughter who is 16, from Barcelona-Spain, for this summer. She has a place in Dance Summer Course A, in English National Ballet School (Hortensia Road in Fulham) and needs a room (shared or not) from 16/07 to 29/07. Anybody knows if there are any Host Family close to ENBS, Student Residence or any possibility of accommodation for her? Is there any ENBS dance student from Spain or other countries who wants to share room. She can understand and speak english very well, so she can share room and move by her own. Thank you in advance. Esther.
  17. Hello, My DS was offered a place at ENBS, he has 17 and we are looking for a place to live in London, or a student with a similar profile to share a room (from september). We are living in Toulouse, France. Any idea, or suggestion? I only sent a mail to the Holland house http://lhalondon.com/holland-house/ for the moment. How can we contact the new students in ENBS, they should have the same problem? thanks
  18. I'm going to stay at QAH this coming year, and I wonder if any of you have any experiences with it? Thank you
  19. I need to find a place to stay in London from Friday to Sunday night. It needs to be accessible to near Buckingham Palace possibly for very early morning starts. Please could some of the London dwellers help me out with a recommendation of where to stay or which areas to look in? I have no clue where to start! My budget is probably around £100 for the 3 nights but preferably less. I know it's last minute but unfortunately the job is too! Thank you!
  20. Firstly, Happy New Year to everyone on this forum! It is fascinating to hear everyones different stories and journeys... I wonder if any of you have any tips- my dd is just 8 and joined RAD Associates recently, which she loves. She is interested in doing the Associates Summer School at Elmhurst in July. The problem is distance...we are 20 mins south of Gloucester, so driving up and back every day might be too much for her as well as the actual classes. Then there is my 5 year old ds to consider too, who, much as he loves vehicles and motorways, may not appreciate 3 hours in the car every day that week! Does anyone have any tips-well located places to stay or bed and breakfasts etc that are affordable or other ideas...any would be gratefully received... Or does anyone know of any other summer schools nearer Gloucester which focus mainly on ballet? Many thanks in advance Balletmummy
  21. Deal all, I am looking for affordable accommodation for my 15 year old daughter in London during Central Summer School from 27.7.2014 till 9.8.2014. Can anybody please give us tips or advice? I am also happy for her to stay with a "dancing" family. Thank you.
  22. may seem like a strange question but i have heard back from mds award regarding fees uniform etc heard from stardust but not heard a thing about boarding. i know my dd was a late acceptance and maybe im a bit impatient as trying to get organised which im not good at.
  23. Although this is not for a ballet course, I suspect the problem is the same ... My daughter has been offered a wonderful musical opportunity in Birmingham next week. Only problem is I am still in school for most of the week. She is 16, and a vocational school student, so fairly self reliant. I am wondering if it is possible for her to stay unaccompanied rather than travel 5+ hours per day. Has anyone solved this problem? I know she would have to be 18 to check into most hotels, and even if I checked her in I am not sure if she is allowed to stay on her own. Her brother lives less than 20 minutes away, but she can't stay with him unfortunately. Meadowblythe
  24. Hi all, My DD is due to start post16 at the Hammond in September and we are still looking for accommodation. Does anyone have any recommendations? TIA
  25. Hi ! Are any of you forum members either parents or friends of any of Tring Grad year ? My DS and 2 of his friends require a house or flat ( pref 3 bedroom ) from Sept .
