  1. Brighton Academy have started up a BA degree with ballet as the main focus. They took some second and third years from another ballet school that closed and can’t be mentioned on this forum. I think they are offering a first year from Sept 2021 but you would need to check that out. Have you thought about any that offer Dance and Drama Award funding? They are means tested and dependent on your parents’ income, you may get some help with living costs. KS Dance in Warrington or Northern Ballet School in Manchester have options to study ballet as a main subject with other dance styles in
  2. I was also going to suggest Einaudi... I giorno is lovely, also there are also some lovely Yiruma pieces that might work for you.
  3. Devastated for all the dancers and performers! With a dd at vocational upper school I do worry what the future holds 😭
  4. A series I would recommend is the ‘Ballet for Drina’ series by Jean Estoril (although they are fiction, not autobiographical). I remember borrowing them from my school library as a teenager and loved them. They are out of print now but you can get them from Amazon, second hand.
  5. Disney Plus channel. Sometimes you can get a six month free subscription.
  6. Yes I would imagine so or the students’ parents could possibly email her directly.
  7. Classes are £12.50 for 90 mins. 29th is Advanced - age 14+ and 30th Intermediate -age 11+
  8. I contacted her via Instagram for details for my dd. She is waiting to see what numbers she gets. No price info provided yet. You can also email her - her email address is on the ad.
  9. Finally got to watch it today after all the technical issues. ROH - you are forgiven 😂 What a performance!!! Absolutely brilliant from start to finish! Loved Akane Takada - exquisite!!! Also loved Anna-Rose O’Sullivan and Marcelino Sambe - such joy and fun in their dancing - amazing! Other highlights were Don Q and Elite Syncopations!!! Fantastic!!! Just wish I’d been in the audience.
  10. I have tried on one laptop using chrome. It plays for about 30 seconds and then refuses to load. Tried a second laptop but it won’t allow me to log in as it said that I’m already logged in on too many devices....even though I’ve signed out of the original laptop. Absolutely gutted. Have been looking forward to this all week.
  11. I think most schools ask you to declare any injuries and the dates that they occurred, on their application forms from what I can remember. I even remember summer schools that my dd did asked for them too. I know that Northern Ballet School in Manchester ask for a medical form to be completed by your G.P. and sent with your application form. I’m not sure how they affect their acceptances / offers though.
  12. You may be able to connect your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable to get a bigger screen. Not sure about getting the app onto a computer though - not sure if it’s transferable to a laptop. My dd only used it on an iPad.
  13. Hi. I’m assuming this is for someone who is aged 16 +? It depends if the course is a degree course or a level 6 diploma. If it’s a degree you apply for student loans for fees and towards living costs to student finance of the country you live in. The living cost loan is higher due to living in London. If it’s a diploma course then you can get help with this through a DADA. Have only experience of degree course so not sure about the application process of a DADA other than knowing that they are awarded by the schools to the most talented applicants.
  14. AuditionIngenu 69 Posted 52 minutes ago Dear All I have just received an email from the RBS summer intensives team asking me to confirm or decline my DD's place on the RBS Summer Intensive 2020. At the end of the email it congratulates her for getting a place. Last week we received a 'wait list' place and so I was somewhat surprised by the email and delighted of course. However, I thought I had better just call the Intensive team to double check before I broke the news to my DD. They told me it is simply a computer generated email sent to everyone placed or on t
  15. Hi have no experience of vocational school degrees but I’m speaking as a parent of a child who was living away from home at University. Student Finance England, or whichever country in Great Britain you are from, will give you all the information you need. There are maintenance loans available for living costs as well as a loan to cover course fees. The assessment for this takes into account the parents’ household income and benefits in kind, and the student is awarded a maintenance loan based on these figures. Even with two reasonably good salaries coming into our home, our child qualified f
