    Track suits

    Do you mean for branding with a logo as a school supplier? Rock the dragon do most of the uniform for our school and have been really good.
  2. Just a note in defence of group numbers. From a teacher's point of view they may possibly be preferable to doing solos etc depending on how many children you are thinking of involving. If you have, say, 15 students that you think would benefit from competitions and you give them all solos then that is 15 pieces of music to find, 15 costumes to source and 15 numbers to choreograph, teach and clean. Whereas you could do 2 or 3 group numbers and every student is involved in 2 or 3 dances rather than just the one solo. Also, and this is especially the case with festivals, if you have lots of solos
  3. Have to say that I feel some of the exam boards have put things out to the public that are at best confusing. Some boards this afternoon are sharing out of date guidance on their social media. If they're not sure then they should seek further guidance.
  4. It's always good idea to speak to your current teacher first before embarking on any additional training especially if it's going to be at another localish dance school. If nothing else teachers just like to know when students are keen to further their dancing. However, there can also be a variety of legitimate reasons why a teacher might caution against it so generally best to speak to them first.

  8. Hello mummytwo, Our school does istd ballet and in general students would do an exam each year although this is not always the case especially as they move higher up the grades. For a child in year 7 I would say that grade 3 is not drastically low but at that age there will be some who are at grade 5 or 6 but it depends on how old they were when they started etc. I'll drop you a pm as well.
  9. My partner loves having nice stationery to use for planning lessons/choreography etc so I think that's a great idea. There's a shop called Typo that does lots of that sort of thing. Also I agree just a simple card explaining how much you appreciate the support is always really nice!
  10. Thank you pictures this is incredibly useful. I've written a guide for students at our school about post 16/18 training which I thought was pretty detailed but this has taught me a couple if things I didn't know! One question...I had always assumed that where a college e.g. urdang offer both a degree and a diploma course that students would essentially get all the same lessons i.e. degree and diploma students in the same ballet, jazz classes etc. And that the only difference would be the degree students would have a bit more theory work to do. Having read what you've put though I'm
  11. Trinity Laban CAT is worth looking at too.
