  1. Nama , I agree. I find this incredibly distasteful.
  2. The advice I received from a solicitor friend is that if I accept the ‘postponement’ and then can’t make the new dates , I have cancelled not the course providers which changes my status and makes me ineligible for a refund. I suspect the gentleman will continue to hold on the money and just ‘roll it over’ to his following courses to avoid saying I can’t have the money back. Money is tight, work prospects not available and currently someone is sat on a lot of OUR money. I echo the sentiments in this post about going what we can to keep our local schools going but this is different.
  3. @Tutumuchmum have you had any luck? I’ve contacted the bank and as I used my debit card I’m only covered to £100. I’ve emailed the gentleman again today - it’s very poor form
  4. I suspect we are booked on the same course . I have got into quite protracted discussions with the gentleman who assured me I’m the only person who is asking for a refund. The advice I’ve been given is that if it’s ‘postponed’ and I accept that status of the course , if we can’t make the new dates we are essentially cancelling and lose the money. My advice has been to keep referring to the course as cancelled and to keep rejecting the postponement.
  5. Thank you that’s interesting. I wonder if maybe the ‘school show’ element doesn’t carry to us ‘non relation’ audience members. I was mesmerised by Robert Binet’s Earthborn at The Linbury and very much hoping to see it again at Opera Holland Park so was disappointed when I realised the cast wasn’t the same.
  6. Thanks Jan. I’m a lurker...always read with interest and in the Doing Dance section.
  7. I watched both Saturday matinee and Wednesday evening at the Linbury Theatre and there were some cross over of pieces. It was fascinating to watch the pieces in different settings (some worked , some didn’t). I’m interested in how the casting works. For instance Wednesday evening the show was stolen by one performer in a contemporary/ neo- classical piece but that performer was noticeably missing on Saturday matinee and the piece lost its impact. Do the school showcase all students as par for the course or is the show run as a ballet company would be? I understand they are students in training
