  1. Hi, I can’t answer any questions about ENBS but I can about the DaDA. There is a sliding scale based on your household income and this decides if you’re entitled to any help with living costs. The scale can be found on this link https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dance-and-drama-awards-income-scales/dance-and-drama-awards-income-scales-2018-to-2019-academic-year Hope this helps x
  2. Yes, but it is proving impossible to get a covid test for us. Can you get one at your nearest airport? Just a thought, as some of these centres have sprung up to allow people to test before travel.
  3. Thank you 😃 Thank you also. This is good to know, especially in the current climate. We aren’t at the graduation year yet but always good to have other options just in case.
  4. Thank you for the advice 2dancersmum. That’s interesting as I was under the impression that from reading this forum that student finance would only pay for a second degree/ higher education if it was related to a health professional role. Maybe that has been the case in the students that Cotes du Rhône was talking about?
  5. Both mine had Dadas and obtained the Diploma. The school has said that because they never did the extra modules to turn it into a full degree and the Dada funding isn’t student financed, different pot, they are entitled to funding. Every student that has left the school after 6:3, whether Dada funded or self payers have obtained student finance at University ☺️ Thank you 😃
  6. Does this still apply to student finance if they received a DaDA?
  7. 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
  8. I was also going to suggest Einaudi... I giorno is lovely, also there are also some lovely Yiruma pieces that might work for you.
  9. Devastated for all the dancers and performers! With a dd at vocational upper school I do worry what the future holds 😭
  10. 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.
  11. Disney Plus channel. Sometimes you can get a six month free subscription.
  12. Yes I would imagine so or the students’ parents could possibly email her directly.
  13. Classes are £12.50 for 90 mins. 29th is Advanced - age 14+ and 30th Intermediate -age 11+
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
