  1. It is a great associate scheme and they really focus on technique. My DS went there and in his LJB class 2 girls and 2 boys got into Wl
  2. First thing I wanted to say is that I am only writing this as the mother of a DC that attended the course. We went after reading what was said about the course here. - but it definitely deserves a review. My DC went for a week and the change after a week working with all the guest teachers and Nicola was amazing. My DC already had spent a year at vocational school but what they learnt in that one week was more than they had learnt in the previous year. Nicola picked out what issues that they had in the first morning and a different dancing child came back a week later. This course was a game changer for my child and they will quite happily say that it was the best intensive that they have ever been on and they have been on lots the last three summers. Coniger xx
  3. There are other opportunities through Ja’s - marinsky at ROH and Sergei Polunin at the Paladium 😄. Just enjoy it
  4. Yes there are ballets throughout the year - look at schedule for ROH ( not nutcracker they use WL students) think they maybe doing sleeping beauty. It is all down to your height and whether you fit the costume. It is usually London JA’s and Eastleigh and mostly boys who get the opportunity
  5. Hi Lara - the Intensives are a bit a minefield in how they choose the kids - photos very important. If you are a JA it doesn't give you an advantage and you have to go through the same process and it is no prediction on whether they will get a WL place at the end of year 6. In my DS class there were boys who didn't get a place at any intensive who ended up getting white lodge places and there were others who got every intensive and boy parts in the ballets and didn't get through. The intensives are a great experience though and lots of fun! xx
  6. Emma Northmore has started her vocational program on Saturdays in London - sorry don't know how young your boy is but if he is too young I am sure she might tell you about ballet boost on Sundays. Also London Junior Ballet which is at Arts Ed at Chiswick on Sunday mornings has an extra audition in September for that term start also Young Dancers Academy has now got a boys only ballet and general dance scheme on Saturday afternoons for 6-11 year olds I think it was announced today. You could also try Danceworks opposite Selfridges for their academy Hope that helps
  7. Got an email saying my DS was number 1 on the waitlist. We never went to the audition in the end and so they have only seen photos. Really really bizarre! They must be desperate for boys if the email wasn’t sent in error!!!
  8. Last year the letters were sent out on Friday and we got it on Monday.
  9. the letter confirms whether there is a MDS offer or whether it will be a fee paying offer. Good luck
  10. Congratulations - that is such great news!!! Well done to your DS! And to you for getting through it all! X
  11. Last year it was just under two weeks - for girls and boys - and it came in a letter. Good luck!
  12. Does anyone know where the graduates of this school end up? I can't find any details. TIA Coniger x
  13. MrsMoo - my ds loved the classes but also really enjoyed the residential side and made some great friends. He really enjoyed the evenings and they had a disco etc and part of the experience for him was “sleeping over.” That being said if your ds doesn’t want to board than that’s great too and he will have an amazing experience!
  14. BRB have hoodies and T shirts for sale on their website for a limited period of time. Might be a good present for someone
  15. In my ds application for spring and summer this year he wore a mixture of bare feet and socks and ballet shoes in the photos and they let him in both spring and summer so don’t think it hugely matters
