  1. Yes we also had student finance and loans at age 16 , lived with other students not homestay whilst studying at Rambert, school very supportive would check on students if unwell even took to chemists/doctors, depends on maturity of student of course.
  2. Yes our experience is just that !
  3. You don't have to be 18 to access student finance for BA Hons courses or have done A levels
  4. Katherine Brett academy of dance is an excellent school, it's in Jesmond Newcastle
  5. Travel lodge Farringdon is a 15 minute walk from central school
  6. We were there till 630 at night so missed our booked train, my advise would be to have a flexible return ticket, we got to solos, interview physio
  7. Pointless , I totally agree with those statements. that you made, we were caught up in that way of thinking we had a great local ballet school which my DD went to, but felt to excel she needed to get in an associate scheme, her teacher did agree to it but did warn us ' it's just another ballet class you know' although she agreed to itcbecause it was RAD. We travelled quite a distance ,cost more money for trains etc whether it was worth it I don't know , she ended up going to vocational school .
  8. I think this is the first year for that course.
  9. Rambert welcome 16 year olds also!
  10. It is excellent my DD was there for 5 yrs and is currently at a vocational school, if I remember rightly when they start they do a ballet class once a week, contemporary class, and then a weekend day which consists of about 3 to 4 hours learning choreography for shows. This may be less if the child is under 12 am sure you'll get this info on the day. Teachers are great ,lovely caring atmosphere.
  11. There was a Darcy Bussell documentary where she learnt a tap routine , might have been a Gene Kelly number and she said the reason she never did tap was because it wasn't good for ballet dancers feet/ ankles.
  12. Vest style also is in used but good condition
  13. KATZ leotard child size 3A colour raspberry,includes raspberry elastic belt .£6 includes postage
  14. In our experience the answer is no although my DD had an excellent local dance school, joined an associate scheme and was on a contemporary CAT putting in I'm sure just as many hours of training as vocational students.
