  1. Yes, my DD2 is one of them... and now DD3 is in drama school with prospects disappearing too... 😢
  2. I'd say about 40 minutes. If you have any question about LSC, 2 of my daughters went there and graduated in 2019 and 2018. Don't hesitate and good luck!
  3. I don't know if I have much to add to what has been said especially coming from teachers... What I know of CNSM is that the selection is pushed so much that classes are ridiculously small and that doesn't help making friends, being pushed in your dance nor being nurtured funnily enough. As someone said, moving to Germany might not be the answer either... That being said, CNSM is not famous for being nurturing... and she's only 14 and more or less alone... When DD1 and DD2 moved away from home to London to dance, they were 17 and 16 and it was not easy either but at least they had f
  4. Still lurking, logging in when I am needed like maybe now... Hope you’re well Jan...
  5. Hi Derin’s Mom, we live in the uk now but I still have connection with ballet I France and with people at CNSM. My daughters are both professional dancers now or rather trying to be but they are not strict ballet anymore. Actually, my eldest has left the world of ballet altogether as she is a contemporary dancer but is studying to become a dance producer now. My second one is a jazz dancer but with a strong ballet and hip hop (!!) base now... And for people who followed me over the years, DD3 is now at Drama school which she started a month ago... Anyway, back to your question, how
  6. Hello, hello, I’m here! A message did the trick! Hi everybody!
  7. London Studio Centre has a classical stream and ex-students end up working in different ballet companies. It has funding through Student Finance.
  8. Doesn't the Young Dancers Academy do it too? https://www.youngdancersacademy.com/
  9. Hi, Yes, it happens regularly if not every year. When DD2 auditioned, one of them (I can't remember which one) had the final in the morning and the other in the afternoon. They are used to it and I do believe they do it on purpose. At least, if you get both, you don't have to come to London twice and for international applicants, it's actually practical albeit stressful for all... Good luck!
  10. DD2 auditioned for Central, LSC, Rambert & RCS 2 years ago and she didn't use pointe shoes for the preliminaries, as far as she remembers.
  11. Congratulations to your daughter, Sheila! I understand the boxes dilemma... DD1 is staying in London but moving house and DD2 doesn't seem to be able to travel without all of her possessions... so our house will be in the same state soon! 😁
  12. What great news Ecarte! I also remember your daughter's journey. I'm happy she's doing so well and I'm going to share what she's doing with DD1 as an example! Best of continuing luck to her!
  13. Dear Primrose, I am so terribly sorry and saddened by what happened to Oliver. There are no words... I have signed and shared the petition. Please accept my sincere condolences. xxx
  14. Hi all, Some of you will remember me from past years of following threads, answering them and being there quite a lot... Today I want to share with you the joy of seeing DD1 graduate yesterday with a BA Hons in Theatre Dance from London Studio Centre (Middlesex University) with a specialty in Contemporary even though LSC trains them to do so much more (Ballet, Jazz, Singing, ...). She's 20, started dancing at 3 and never stopped even though she broke her foot last year and suddenly feared having to stop... But she held on through pain, tears and worries! She's now offic
  15. It's a very interesting post NaiveDad. As a mum to 2 elder DDs, I relate totally with what you said and especially with the part about body shapes that worried you so... and with the preparing early for Upper Schools too...
