    ENBS 2019 Summer School

    Looking at this & rather confused....maybe I have missed something Am I right that for selection process you can choose to either send in an audition video or attend alive audition? For latter it states that you must write preferred date/venue on application form & refers you to audition page on website for dates. These dates seem surely to relate just to entry for Full Time Training? Or are these for Summer School also? From people's past experience, by roughly what time do people hear if they have been selected for SS? I imagine it to be a case of the sooner accommodation is booked, the cheaper it is..... And are there are scholarships/funding routes at all? Ever hopeful
  3. Hi my daughter wants to apply for the RBS spring intensive and summer school for 2019. She isnt bothered which one she attends if she is even lucky enough to receive a place (she knows its a huge long shot). Question I have though ....can we do one application and one application fee to cover all 3 options? Or do we do a seperate application for spring intensive and one for summer school? I have emailed and asked but no reply yet. Also has anyone applied and know when we will be notified of results? Is a week for spring intensive long enough? Has anyone had a child attend? thanks
  4. 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
  5. Hi, Has anybody heard back from ENBS re: Spring Intensive yet? Just wondering when they will send notifications out and if by post/email...or even if you get to hear anything if it’s a No? Applied for DD so fingers crossed. thanks😊

    Dance forward

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone was going to dance forward this summer. My DD is and I wondered if anyone is going or has been. I haven’t really heard much about it and am thinking I maybe should have picked a different one for her??
  10. Looking for a residential summer school appropriate for Grade 3 over summer but not between 10th/11th - 25th August. Wanting to test whether able to stay away from home and likes it before deciding on applying for vocational school - anyone any thoughts? Many thanks
  11. I've picked this up via a newsletter from Rambert: A series of workshops, classes and public performances curated by Rambert's Guest Artistic Director Benoit Swan Pouffer. http://www.rambert.org.uk/join-in/summer-at-rambert/
  12. Dear All GO BACK TO SCHOOL IN TIP TOP CONDITION. We have had a few enquires about our 3 day ballet intensives at the end of August. Unfortunately we are fully booked this year, however on looking at everyones term timetables, most vocational students don't go back to their schools until the 8th/9th September. Course fee's £395 including 2 nights accommodation and all food/drinks etc. So we are running and Extra 3 day intensive this year on the 4th/5th/6th September. So if you have not been able to do to much training over the holiday period or just want that final boost before heading back to RBS, Elmhurst, Tring, YDA etc, then please give us some thought. We will be running 3 full days of classes focusing on getting everyone back to full fitness, working on flexibility and of course that technique. You will also have one to one time with me to discuss any problem areas which your teachers have highlighted, and I hope I can offer some advice to put your mind at ease or give you some excusers to help you out. It may be your Audition year, or your assessments etc. If it is, then do not delay. ONLY 12 places. Please email me nicola@woodsidedanceretreat.com for more details. I hope if you are reading this you have heard good things about our courses, but if you have any concerns, then just email and we can talk more. All the best, and hope to see some more of you all in September. Kind regards Nicola Moriarty Principal

    YBSS application 2018

    Hi My dd wants to do a summer school this year as she finds it a long time to not dance "properly" as she calls it, over the summer. I have a couple of questions. It is local to us so she would be a day student, as well as she is only 9 years old.....would she miss out on anything in the evening if she didn't board? Finally it's over two weeks but we can only do the second week as the first week is still school term for us. Again will she miss out on anything from the first week? Thanks everyone!!! Edited as I don't know the order of the months of the year!!!!!!!

    Adult Summer Courses 2018

    Can anyone recommend some adult summer courses/ retreats this summer? Any weekends in UK or suggestions would be greatly received. I'm sad to say I can't do the Chelsea Ballet as it's the one week I'm away with my children. Thank you

    Summer School for beginners...

    Hi gang, Just wondered if I could pick your brains about SS. DS has read about them and is keen but I don’t want him to be out of his depth! Can anyone advise of any that would accommodate him? He’s 10, and has stayed away from home before but not for more than 4 nights. Been dancing for 2 years, top of grade 2 now but was unsuccessful at vocational school audition for year 7. Would love for him to have a really good, positive experience. Cost not that important as long as he has a good time and location as near to the M6 corridor as poss. Thank you...👍👍👍

    ENB summer courses

    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?
  17. When I joined this forum I was committed to keeping post regular and interesting! Fail!! Life, motherhood and extra teaching has put a stop to that! However I have just finished a wonderful 6 months at Rambert School and now finally have a minute to think and communicate! If your dancers aged 8+ and up to 16 years of age are looking for some summer performance fun! And you can commute to Highbury, North London, then do consider my 'Summer Sensations' workshop weeks in August. There are plenty of big name summer schools that will aim to boost your technique; and so my weeks are performance weeks... a little treat which will boost your STAGE PRESENCE and your CONFIDENCE and remind you, if you need, that ballet is GREAT FUN!! (well yes ok I will boost your technique too, I can't help it!) We have so much fun and you will be entertained and amazed at how much we can create in 5 days when you watch the performance/s at the end of the week/s. These workshops are suitable for vocational and non-vocational dancers; I do have children from vocational schools joining me (White Lodge, YDA, Italia Conti, Tring, Royal Ballet MAs etc) but I also am pleased to meet non-vocational children who are dancing purely for fun... a wonderful time is had by all. I am pretty sure there are some parents and dancers on this forum who can validate this for me Please do email for further information and/or to book. There is a £50 discount for anyone booking before May 1st 2018 BACK TO TRAINING IN AUGUST I also have a back to training week in August. This runs for 5 half days and consists of YOGA for dancers, a Ballet class (with me!) plus a gentle stretch. Venue to be confirmed. Happy Dancing one and all and do get in touch Sarah

    Elmhurst Summer School application

    I had a skim through previous Elmhurst SS topics, but could not spot an answer (probably one very obvious, sorry!) Just wanted to ask if you need to send money in with your application? It says £25 discount before 9th March, but i know with RBS there was an application fee, wondering if it is the same for Elmhurst? Hoping to send the forms off today 😊 thank you ! 💕

    RBS Spring Intensive 2018

    Hi there. I am new to this forum as well as the world of ballet at vocational level. My daughter is 12 and although she has an audition date for RBS MA's in Jan (which I believe the majority of applicants get anyway) both applications for the Spring Intensive programmes at WL and HK were sadly declined. Although the email still encourages us to reapply for future courses, I was just wondering if any other applicants have experienced the same rejection email/letters and how many times they were declined before their application was finally accepted? I realise that the demand is high and the number of places are limited. But as RBS do not offer individual feedback, I did not want to continue paying a deposit for each application if they think my child does not fit the RBS's "ideal" profile. I am thinking that the audition she has in January will be a good indicator. In the meantime, we will keep our options open and start looking at other schools. I would be interested in hearing anyone elses experience.

Feel free to add any other info about the course! I'm debating whether to do Central or Ballet Boost, as I can't make MBS dates this year 😪
