  1. LSCD have brilliant COVID rules in place tbh. It’s the student halls (independent of LSCD) that has issues
  2. Yes they recommended (only very few that allow under 18’s) LCDS have great COVID19 rules in place (probably very over cautious compared to some dance institutions) very very small class sizes and must wear a mask to dance in. No travelling work etc so can’t complain. It’s the student halls that don’t have any rules but as the only student from LCDS there so don’t think they will have much say. If you test positive you “must ensure you wipe down the kitchen after you have used it” is the only rule I have seen. Doesn’t feel quite right to be allowing positive cases to use communal areas but not sure there is an alternative option. People have to eat. Each Kitchen is shared by 14 people 😔
  3. My DD who has started at London School of Contemporary Dance has had to go into student halls as she is under 18 and on arriving was told that she can social distance and wear a mask “if she wants”. She did “want” but not one other student has even attempted to social distance and no masks in communal areas and she has been made fun off for trying to social distance/wear a mask 😔🤷‍♀️ I feel anytime soon she will not be able to attend the very minimal face to face classes all because other students can’t seem to understand the risk/impact.
  4. No masks and approx 30 in a small ish studio in touching distance of each other. She won’t be going back but how can they get away with it?
  5. Has anyone had any experience of drop in classes at Base Studios in London? They are advertising the fact that they have won an “award” for being the safest COVID19 studio in London, however, my dd attended a class last sunday that was packed and absolutely no opportunity to social distance. How is this allowed? Would appreciate people’s thoughts (most attendees were over 18 and I’m sure no windows/fresh air)
  6. All other events that are being cancelled are being refunded from what I have seen.
  7. Finals have been cancelled for LCDS. Interview to be done by Skype. Totally understand why. However, as a parent if an offer is received it feels a worry to accept somewhere for them to be for 3 years without having the option to view and get a real feel for the place. Hoping there is an option for questions to be asked as you would if visiting in person. Not sure there is a solution 😞
  8. Agree! We were in same situation and I advised we wouldn’t be accepting place without MDS too May have changed this year though so worth checking ?
  9. I did the same last year and was chased for the money. Was told that we couldn’t attend funding audition if didn’t pay it.
  10. Resurrecting this post in the hope for some further insight into RCS if anyone can help. DD is considering applying but is keen on contemporary and would like to understand how much of the timetable is given to contemporary on a weekly basis and also if improv/creative classes are also available. DD wants to keep up Ballet to a high level after leaving vocational but really interested in progressing in contemporary. Do they only take the “typical” ballet dancer (I don’t mean that in any way offensive just don’t know how else to express it) or do they have a cross section of experience in dance, body shape etc Many thanks
  11. You def have to pay it to be able to attend the funding audition and it isn’t refunded if you can not attend due to not getting an MDS. Been there and got the t-shirt 😞
  12. They invited 52 back to the MDS audition last year for a handful of MDS awards at a cost of £160 per child auditioning
  13. RE BA Hons - Forgive the silly question but I thought grants had been abolished now and it’s all student loans for fees plus a maintenance aspect based on parents income?
  14. Ask if you can have a current year assessment instead. You can for MDS in such situations so hopefully same for DaDa?
  15. Student finance is also available for Cert HE courses at 16 (ie Foundation Year leading to BA)
