  1. This made me very happy! Congratulations
  2. He is 16 almost 17. The standard is phenomenal.... So much so that some working professionals have come to take class. Up to age 14 in the pre senior class and students from all over the world. No boarding facilities though...
  3. We did Pvps with a dad travelling from near the south coast. It was exhausting but completely worthwhile and I am glad I was mad enough to do it:) Good luck with the decision .
  4. Thank you for this lovely post. It is encouraging when sometimes the path. Seems so rocky !!
  5. I have been impressed by the quality of teaching and the standard of dancing of participants at the Russian imperial masters of ballet summer school taught by Vagabova Academy teacher, so much attention to detail. Highly recommended. Long days and students kept very busy!
  6. The Vyne Berkhamsted is running a coppeia workshop week from 8th August for a week. Classes and rep culminating in a performance. I believe there is an ENB guest teacher too. Being attended by vocational and non vocational students.
  7. It was a lovely presentation. Such talent on show!
  8. Are all JA results out now then?
  9. Was anyone else at the open day today? What a lovely day! It was the first time I have gone and I really enjoyed the whole day in the beautiful surroundings. How lucky to be able to go to school there! I thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic dancing from JAs to Year 11... Tho think the Scottish was my favourite:) what fabulous dancing. I had a very tasty Dahl lunch, a fab cuppa, and a tour around the school. And the rain held off throughout:) Would definitely go again... And would recommend for a lovely day out.
  10. My dd was on waiting list last year but had no luck:( (Edited by Mod)
  11. My family has had a few go through the system at Tring. It is fair to say that they had their heads turned by dance, however the academic staff did their utmost to keep me informed of any lapses in homework, missing coursework, poor effort (you get the picture Happy to say the last two left with really good sets of results. I do not dispute they may have done better at our local (at the time) comprehensive which was and still is graded 'Outstanding'. However, not only have they done well enough to pursue whatever A levels they choose, but they have also gained many other valuable skills which will be useful in the job market. In addition, the smaller class sizes have been beneficial to my youngest dd who is performing above her target grades. My other DS was also kept nose to the grindstone while at the Hammond and left with a good crop of A and A stars
  12. It's my dis who got the place. He is 16. Dd not lucky this time:(
  13. See you at pick up shygirlsmum/) perhaps the balletco badges will allow us to spot each other
  14. Results are coming out! Happy and sad news for us,
  15. Long time to wait for results this year. In previous years we heard the day after the audition which was fab for dating nerves. I guess the growing number of auditionees make that more difficult.
  16. Good luck to everyone auditioning in York this weekend
  17. Well done mumof6 (love the name) and fingers crossed for a place. Looking forward to hearing everyone else's news as I feel we have been on this journey together
  18. ENBS and RBS do have nutrition talks and I think Tring has in the past.
  19. My dis and did attended this audition yesterday. It was very well organised and extremely busy. They seemed to think there were over 50 in the 2 pm audition which goes to show the growing popularity of this scheme. Competition for funding gets tougher and tougher. They both enjoyed the class and I loved the chance to catch up with friends. Fingers crossed now. It is a super summer school!
  20. Having had 4 children go through training at Tring, I can only affirm what has been said above about the quality of training. The teaching is excellent . Their Young Dancers" Show is happening in the next couple of months. Go have a look to see what your dd would be doing. The graduate show Encore is always worth seeing. The students are fab and they have work choreographed on them by top industry professionals. Not only that, my dcs have made friends at Tring whom they still meet up with and support even though they have gone their separate ways. Edited to correct typo
