  1. My dd's result took about 5 weeks although not had the certificate yet.
  2. @balletbean it was a fantastic show. Good luck to all the 3rd years on their next steps. I'd like to echo your words about the staff, my dd has blossomed.
  3. Congratulations! My dd has been offered a place on the senior course. 😁
  4. Just for info, they get a lot of info from the Facebook group. It's used like a noticeboard, timetables, rehearsal schedules etc. My dd doesn't do Facebook but uses it for the NBS group
  5. I have spoken to them today and I don't have a problem with the organisation or teaching. Just wondered if anyone had seen a performance and knew what the quality is like?
  6. Does anyone have any knowledge of these? http://www.thebirminghamballetcompany.com/ My dd is thinking of applying for some performance opportunity after the last dismal 12 months. Thanks
  7. Thank God they're not changing the tracksuits - I'd have had to sell a kidney 😂😂
  8. I believe there's talk of the uniform changing for next year so I wouldn't do anything on that front yet! X
  9. If it helps, the school set up a Facebook group for the 1st years last year. They have since moved onto something else but it was a good way to make contact. Also once you have a contract signed with Unite you can download the app and make contact with others in your flat. The app is also needed for reporting any maintenance issues and using the laundry.
  10. Congratulations to both of you. We don't have personal experience but over half of my dd's year live at home.
  11. Best advice we were given - buy a stamp. Google stamptastic!! Absolutely brilliant 😁😁 saves so much time.
  12. My dd is in A on the 5th floor and its not too bad. It can't be as she's staying in A next year too! Once the booking is made they can download the Unite app and connect with the others in their flat - this helped them with planning what to bring
  13. I agree with the mix of ages, there is quite a wide range in my dd's year too. Due to the covid situation they haven't had the chance to mix with the older years this year as they've been kept in their bubbles. Hopefully that will improve from September. We had our dada offer on 1st April so it shouldn't be too long.
  14. They can change the tenancy dates if you speak to them, just takes a couple of days to update
  15. Hi, My dd is in New Medlock this year and has decided to stay next year too. She has friends in Dwell and they are moving across to New Medlock in September. The Dwell flats are quite small and only have a small space to eat in the kitchen. I have a direct number for someone at New Medlock who was really helpful in sorting out a flat for next year, I will dig it out and pm it to you in the morning.
  16. Yes, Parkway House is closed next year. Happy to help with any questions if needed.
  17. Congratulations, another dd here who also started at 16. She's in her first year, also happy to help if I can.
  18. Do you mean similar to the schemes with Northern Ballet and Ballet Cymru?
  19. My DD is a first year - I'm sure she'd be happy to chat. Send me a PM and we can sort something out 😃
  20. To be honest nothing would surprise me from our local MP, there was an article on the local news tonight about it, it's at about 10 minutes. North West Tonight, Evening News: 12/11/2020: www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000pc6r via @bbciplayer Dd and friends are more impressed that they were on the BBC 😂😂
  21. From what I understand the accreditation hasn't come through in time. My dd also has a friend in the same position. I don't know any more yet. Will let you know if I find out anything else.
  22. Might be worth speaking to them as there have been some changes over the summer. The jazz focus is very musical theatre based x
  23. Northern Ballet School are also advertising that they have places on both the classical and jazz courses x
