  1. My DD is at GSA doing Actor Muso and the 3rd years are all finishing now. They are not returning in September. They all have agents, so hopefully will start to audition once everything opens up. It is far to complicated to allow them to redo their finally year, you can’t have 2 final year year groups.
  2. Contact JLD School of Dancing in Kingsclere. www.jldschoolofdancing.co.uk. There website is being revamped but their contact details are there. They do adult ballet on Thursday mornings, mixed abilities with a wonderful teacher. They also do adult Tap on Tuesday evenings.
  3. The last time my DD did EYB, just over a year ago there was one full scholarship and one half for Juniors and Seniors. You have no idea until the audition whether your child is being considered for one as they decided during the audition.
  4. DD is currently at GSA - She audition all over the place last year. Do pm me with any questions. On the the subject of mental health, GSA has one of the best, possible the best in the country.

  6. Looking forward to seeing this tomorrow with my daughter who is currently at GSA doing Actor Musician degree, her first instrument is the Cello. She has gone down the Actor Muso route rather than dance or MT because she couldn’t imagine life without her Cello. Personally I th8n’ she has the best of everything studying dance,acting, music and voice - sorry that was off tangent
  7. That is awful. Over the years DD has been fitted at various different shops and we have never been charged. We have also had fitters refuse to sell shoes because they weren’t happy ( DD also wasn’t happy ) DD has been through various makes and styles as her feet have changed ( not in size ) but in strength and what she wanted out of a pair of shoes. It’s a very personal thing and patience is really important.
  8. EYB is a fantastic experience and personally I think worth the time and money. My DD performed with then 6 times in total. She gradually moved up the ranks and ended up with solo’s. In her last production with them she was invited to join the principals in their lessons with Miss Lewis. DD cannot thank EYB enough for everything she learnt with them. She has just finished vocational 6th and off to GSA in September to do Actor Musician degree. I will also add she did one performance with them in Yr 11, it was a great way of relaxing during herGCSE year, there were several of
  9. Our results are always sent out via email as soon as they arrive, no matter what time of year. DD had Adv 1 next at RAD HQ and results are expected early August.
  10. Moorland do offer bursaries to other year groups/ entry but it is very dependent on circumstances.
  11. I really don’t want to offend but personally I wouldn’t put a picture up of one of my children on a public forum.
  12. and to your DD. Mine is the only one taking hers. I am sure you know but the closing date for Session 1 ( early summer at HQ) was May 3rd, so hopefully your DDs teacher will be able to tell where she has been entered.
  13. DD is taking her Adv 1 in the next exam session at RAD HQ. We will be paying £142 plus travel expenses ( train fare) She has done all her vocational exams at HQ, that’s the way her school work. One of her teachers always meets the students at HQ. We are lucky that London is only an hour away by train. All her other exams have been other exams ( no matter what genre) have been at her dance school studios and we have only ever paid the exam fee, there may have been a few extra lessons and a mock exam ( which we did pay £7 for) but that’s it.
  14. You get student funding with a degree course. DD is just coming to the end of a Level 3 Extended Diploma. She has had offers for Diploma ( full scholarship) and degrees in a mixture of MT and Actor Musician. All at big named colleges. Personally I don’t think it is worth going anywhere just for the sake of it. You need to love the course and college, 3 years is a long time. We definitely haven’t seen the level 3 as a waste of two years in fact quite the opposite. If she had gone at 16 she would definitely be doing the wrong course. The last 2 years have opened her eyes to di
  15. Funding for a degree is much easier, student loan. Funding for a diploma is dada, scholarship or private funding /loan. And because of that we told DD to only apply mainly for degree course. She was lucky and one of the Diploma course she applied for offered her a full scholarship. Our reasoning for this were we are in the unfortunate situation where are household income is too high for a dada but not high enough to be able to afford diploma fees. We also felt that a degree would open more doors to her if she changed direction. Her GCSE dance teacher advised her to do a degree. She had f
