  1. I would echo Valentina’s comments .
  2. I wonder if anyone has received a refund from British Ballet Grand Prix ?
  3. I think I’m repeating myself but my DS graduated from Tring ( he had been there since year 9 ) straight into a guest contract , which became permanent after 3 months . The company is a classical company in Europe . I am certain that the excellent contemporary training at Tring played a huge part in his gaining a place . 2 of his fellow Tring friends were also given places in the same company , although one has since left . They were also gifted at contemporary as well as classical . One of the directors of dance at Tring has very good contacts , as well as being a superb teacher . A wide selection of A levels is available , my DS gained Maths and Physics . A friend of his gained excellent A level results and went on to study medicine . I am more than happy for anyone to pm me for information. I have a former student ( girl ) who recently graduated , and another in year 8.
  4. Tyrone Singleton returned to Tring to adjudicate their famous ‘ cups ‘ competition , four years ago . He was encouraging and supportive to the students at the school where he trained .
  5. There are a fair few who move to RBS from Tring . At least there were when my DS was there . He graduated 4 years ago and is now in a company . He speaks very highly of the classical training at Tring . I am more than happy to share our experiences if anyone wishes to pm me . Tring do very well in competitions too. Cecchetti, for example . Not all the top schools enter for these. They certainly come out as very versatile dancers . My pupil who graduated from Tring last year, was a finalist for BBC young dancer (classical section ) but she is just as proficient in contemporary, jazz and commercial .
  6. Happy for you to pm me about Tring . My DS graduated from there 4 years ago . I have only good things to say .
  7. Happy to talk about Tring if you want to pm me . My DS graduated 4 years ago .
  8. Good news here for level 0 and level 1 Fantastic if you’ve got a bursary offer for the school . Such a wonderful place to train .
  9. Anyone heard for level 1 associates yet ?
  10. Thank you . Have you any idea how many applicants / how many places there are ?
  11. Thanks . I feel a bit better now !
  12. Anyone heard about associates for 12-14 year olds ? We have had news for my 10 year old and I’m concerned that they may not have received the video submissions
  13. Wanted . Grishko leotard . Dad1930 age 12/13 in red , green , ice blue , pink - actually anything except navy . Thank you
  14. My pupil got an MDS for year 7 off the waiting list . She is now in year 8 . It’s a wonderful school . I hope you get good news x
  15. Over the last 3 years , I have sent several students off to vocational school . Elmhurst (1) Tring (1) White lodge (1) Moorlands (1) Hammond (2) Several of these got multiple offers . Apart from one child , they all attended one ballet class ( syllabus) per week and one body conditioning / free ballet class . Some did tap and jazz ( 1 class per week) . One was a Moorlands associate , several were JA’s . All these students gained MDS . None of them was big on Instagram , some not even on it at all . They just had a couple of private lessons before their auditions . It can be done !
