  1. Thanks Janet, I'll pass it on. He'll remember meeting you at the Lowry! I can't remember what we were seeing though 🙄. Think we were with pups mum and her dd.
  2. Just popping back on here to say I have one very happy ds! He has been offered a place on the TL graduate diploma course, subject to a 2.1 in his degree. Thank you to everyone who posted advice or good wishes. Xx
  3. Congratulations NHenry. Hope you find the finance. My son is hoping to do what Tulip suggests - if he can get onto the Trinity Laban graduate diploma course (see thread here. He will be 21 but I think this course takes people with a mixture of backgrounds and ages. Good luck with your dance training and finding the funds.
  4. Hi Hannah Thank you very much for posting about this. I'll certainly pass it on. Best wishes, Cathy
  5. Thanks Janice. The Jasmine Vardimon thing looks very interesting but I think he's missed the UK audition dates for this year (which was the case with Ballet Rambert's equivalent as well). Really good to hear how much your dd is enjoying Laban. It sounds like a brilliant place. Good luck to her.
  6. Thanks Pas de Quatre. That's very reassuring and helpful to hear.
  7. Ooh thank you for that meadowblythe. Very helpful!
  8. Thanks balletbean! Your dd's friend will be up against ds's friend then 😁. Very helpful reverse psychology suggestion, thank you, we'll try that. Would be nice not to be bankrupt from September!
  9. Thanks Janet! Yes, my mum pointed that out to us. She's become very invested in ds's potential application (to the tune of lending half the fees if ds goes) 🤣!
  10. Thanks balletbean. Me and his old dance teacher have tried convincing him to try that but he doesn't want musical theatre he says. Doesn't want to sing 🙄. (And he's got a good voice! 🙄🙄) He wants to give contemporary dance a go. His flatmate/dance society friend at uni just got through 2 rounds of Lion King auditions and is waiting for the singing audition, but ds couldn't be persuaded to go along and try out himself! Still hoping that he'll consider it in the end, so thanks for your advice.
  11. Thanks Pictures, I'll point that out to him. As you say, it does read as if they're expecting people who have already trained and are looking to sharpen up their performing skills . . .
  12. Hi all. I'm looking for any feedback on this course, or similar courses please. Ds (age 20) is graduating from his Humanities degree this summer and looking at ways back into dance - teaching, choreography, or performing, he's not sure which, but probably performing for a while, if possible, and teaching in the long term. He's spent his 3 last years doing a lot of all 3 in various dance societies at university (ballet, contemporary, jazz, and tap). He has Adv 2 ballet, amongst his exam qualifications. He's interested in Trinity Laban's one year Graduate dance diploma, which sounds ideally geared towards someone like him. Does anyone have any experience of it? And does anyone know of any other similar dance courses he could also look at? He did all the usual stuff before uni; was a RBS JA, and Hammond Dance Associate, did YMT-UK musical theatre etc, but didn't want to go to a dance college at that stage. He doesn't want to do a Musical Theatre course. He wants to be in the South/London. Please let me know of any recommendations, suggestions, and/or experiences of young people who have taken similar career paths. Thank you if you can help.
  13. If anyone is interested in seeing the standard of dance at university, the Loughborough interuniversities' dance competition is the biggest and the best and is usually live streamed by the university's student TV channel. It is on the 10th and 11th March and the link is posted on the following Facebook page, generally on the day itself, sometimes the day before. https://www.facebook.com/lborodancecomp/
