  1. I have already seen one course charging the same for their on-line offering.
  2. You have possibly looked at this site but incase you haven't seen it. http://educational-grants.org/
  3. Can anyone tell me the time of Royal SA1 boys classes in both Birmingham and London? Thank you.
  4. From reading their funding policies in the past I thought that MDS was only offered to lower school although some current pupils were able to take this into 6th Form. An MDS for 6th Form would surely be financially better than a DaDA. Is this a revision of the policy? They also gave a top, middle or bottom ranking although in reality I don't support many will get waitlist places and DC need to make other plans.
  5. In this case they will most likely be self-employed. The venue may already have been paid so their terms will have to be taken into account by the organiser which I appreciate is their issue rather than the participants. My feeling is that refunds should be made if the alternative offering is not suitable. At the very least e-mails should be not be going ignored. I know quite a few people who have been unable to get refunds on travel and hotels for recent dance events that were cancelled although some have been offered credit notes. For a non-dance related event despite paying in full in advance for a good deal, and the hotel still open at the point we cancelled, we received a full refund on cancellation without our asking.
  6. I had an e-mail yesterday about the cancellation of events at Southbank and today one specifically relating to Emerging Dancer giving the new date. They will move all tickets to a new date, 22nd September, and if you are unable to make it you can get a credit voucher valid for two years or a refund. The deadline for the latter two options is 6th June.
  7. As of now, according to their social media, they are going ahead.
  8. Did they not ask those attending to respond with regards to travel plans? They will have made this decision off the back of this and other advice. Other Easter intensives may now follow their example.
  9. Sorry, I need to take back my optimism!
  10. The closing date for the GM role was end of February so time yet for interviews and any appointment to be announced. I can’t see them running any of the proposed masterclasses and workshops until later in the year at this rate.
  11. Not aware that they will cancel but RBS will not be allowed to accept into WL those who have travelled from any of the countries on the Government list.
  12. Thank you - this pretty much confirms what we have been told. The great plans for the 2019 course never came off and the loss of teachers and administrators (never mind lack or leadership) would have contributed greatly. For this summer they have reduced the class sizes and have offered it to a reduced age range and it will be in their lovely new building. Does your DD plan to attend this year or have you been put off?
  13. My understanding is that they fill the places as the applications come in. Just started to look at the application myself and couldn't see a date. Last time we looked to apply it was the same. Hopefully someone might know more. I am interested to hear how quick they respond. Looking to book a holiday and don't want to wait too long!
  14. Thank you. The dates for Ellison intensive is too early for us. I wasn't able to work out how the classes worked for Portugal. Do you sign up for individual classes? We may take a look at this.
