love this thread! so much info ....

 

yes i need to feedback info on summer schools etc over here in oz!

 

firstly my daughter had the most amazing time at RBS white lodge spring school...desperate to now attend full time /return next yr .... it was everything she had dreamed and hoped for !

 

we live in brisbane now  and oh my the dance world here is very well developed and set up  especially for competitions... i counted 25 competitions/eisteddfods just  this year  that kids can do with solos etc  just within a 2 hour radius of Brisbane...imagine this in UK !!!!!! this isnt including the group eisteddfods that the dance schools do aswell...... oh and the state/private schools also run dance programs and enter competitions also ..... 

that is for another thread iam sure....we are in our 2nd year of solo competition now ......

plus we have JMA RAD awards for brisbane region yearly .... Alana Haines in NZ ..... Asian Grand Prix ....... the list is endless it seems ..... 

compared to my ballet background that was strict RAD back in the 70-80s in northern england this is totally different for me as a mum!

 

ok holiday schools and summer schools..... info i have gleamed so far ( iam in Brisbane and i may be missing stuff due to location/age of my child etc so apologies list may miss some ) 

 

Australian ballet school  melbourne - non selective -just pay and go  it seems in summer and i think  most school holidays

IBW international ballet workshops- non selective -pay and go in the big cites in summer and winter breaks approx 5 day courses- seem to fill up very fast 

Claudia Dean runs courses - non selective -pay and go- seem to fill up quickly

Bolshoi Australia Summer Intensive in melbourne and sydney - selective via live audition or video submission only 

Queensland Ballet - summer schools-  selective via application forms/photo 

 

Local schools run own summer schools courses of course  and each city will prob have other stuff going on aswell .....

 

another thing going on here is youth ballet and contemporary  groups that you audition for and do a yearly performance  ...in brisbane alone we have Brisbane City Youth Ballet, Ballet Theatre Qld, i think now 4 contemporary groups are going now in the city ...... dance is just huge over here

 

 

compared to my dancing days  its crazy over here at times with what is available !!! xxxxxxx

 

 

 

Hi, 

Thank you for all the details of SS in Oz. Any details on schools out west. Perth in particular. Youngest DD would love to visit her big bro who lives just south of the city. Seems a good idea if she did travel that far was to utilise the time wisely. Thank you

Did anyone attend Central's SS this year and can give me info for next year.  Now that ENB has switched to two weeks without residency we're looking for somewhere else to send more advanced students.  Grateful for any info you can give me. Thanks.

Over the years I have had several pupils attend the summer school. All have loved it and some went more than once.  However the last pupil to go was a couple of years ago, so not totally up to date info, but I don't think it has changed much.  The big difference with other summer schools is that there is no photo selection.  They state the minimum requirements for each age group and then it is a "first come first served basis".

Hi Bella

 

Our courses age range from 11-17 years. However we have had younger but it depends on the person and how happy they are away from home.

 

Thanks

Hi,

Can anybody tell me roughly when Elmhurst Summer School dates get released. Don’t see anything yet?

Thanks

I think it must be soon, we did application photos along with lower school ones last year, so must have been October-ish. Elmhurst is a lovely summer school. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Thanks Sunrise81.  Does anyone know how likely you are to get a place and how would people rate it?  DD met someone who went a few few years ago.  They are a really experienced dancer and at that time entering and winning competitions.  She is too shy to ask the girl for information so hoping someone here can shed some light before we attempt the photos - never my strong point!

My DD attended 1 week last year & really enjoyed it.... good range of teachers & styles with different repertoire & she made some great friends for life! 

She hopes to go again this year (Happy New Year everyone!) & wants to do the 2 weeks...attended to scholarship audition so fingers crossed for success 🤞🏻

(I do think possibly more for the older dancers say (14+) not least as they are in single rooms which I think my DD would’ve not liked if younger) 

Well worth going for - & lovely that a high standard selective school is free to apply for! 👍🏻

Good luck!

Hi, my daughter would like to apply for ballet summer schools this summer and we have a few we have decided to apply for. Just wandering if anyone could tell me about NYB. Is it good ballet training or is ballet the ‘warm up’ and time mostly focused on creating choreography and performing?

YBSS dates are 13th to 23rd July. This is still in mainstream school term time. Is the summer school more geared towards vocational students who finish earlier?
