  1. I am not condoning the practice of RBS in making offers to competition winners but remember that they don’t all accept and are not eligible for the government funded places. There are places funded by private donors. I do agree that training in the UK needs to match the standard of those received overseas however it is often a very different system in terms of academic and dance training and some competition winners are not always technically the best dancers, or so DD tells me.
  2. DD just wore non-dance brand t-shirts, joggers, leggings and hoodies and has never felt out of place. Take her warm-up boots and she will have the t-shirt. A new leotard and skirt is nice for a well done on getting in present but I wouldn’t go all out with new kit. Hope she has a lovely time.
  3. Congratulations to all getting a place. We would have loved to apply but had already booked and paid for another summer school before this was advertised. Look forward to see how NYB goes forward after this summer.
  4. Those on the 2020 waitlist were made offers but I haven’t heard of any waitlisted from the current applications. We know of two very happy dancers who have places so hope your DC’s friend was also offered a place.
  5. I give my DD an allowance and if she was using it to fund a smoking habit I would not continue - she is aware of this. We can't afford for her to smoke never mind it being unhealthy.
  6. I read here last year of some very late finals offers so I am sure they do review and consider all applications. DD's friend was a last minute application a few years back and was offered a finals audition and wait list for scholarship. Just unfortunate that there was no call with an offer.
  7. Elmhurst does assess out but not in the same way as WL. They have a clearer assessment and improvement system where you have a series of "warnings". Tring also only guarantee funded places for a year at the time so effectively assess out also.
  8. Current WL pupils were told yesterday if they have places for next year: in the case of Year 9s it will be a place for Year 10 and 11 and for those in Year 11 it will be a final audition for Upper School. Those in lower years will be "helped" (not sure how officially)if they wish to get finals auditions at other schools and those going to Upper School will have been applying elsewhere anyway. Not all choose to stay and will have planned to leave at the end of the year from all year groups. Some decide to leave the school before the end of the summer term but most appear to stay on and finish the year. We know personally of those who have decided the school wasn't for them and had planned to audition elsewhere, those who have been assessed out and found places elsewhere and those who have decided dance is not for them and left. The same will happen at all vocational schools.
  9. Thank you so much - this maybe a better match than Elmhurst - we will definitely pass this on.
  10. Thank you - saw this posted and past it on.
  11. Thank you - this makes sense. She just doesn't know what to do this year now.
  12. It is the FdA Professional Dance Performance where she planned to do a classical ballet pathway and then do a third year on the BA (Hons) Professional Performance (top-up). She chose this over two other offers. DD can't get out of her exactly what happened so I have come here to see if anyone knows anything happening at LSC. DD is just finding it difficult to support her and I didn't know what to suggest.
  13. Does anyone know what is happening with London Studio Centre? DD is consoling her friend who has said they received an e-mail to say her course now won't run.
  14. Yes there don't ever appear to be as many boys in MAs - lower as a percentage of the total than the JAs or SAs. There have been a few boys at other centres in the past as noted by @coniger, also Newcastle from memory. I would just ask them.
  15. I have already seen one course charging the same for their on-line offering.
