  1. Hi All, I'm studying Baroque historical dance but so much want to improve technique by finding local adult classical ballet lessons near Basigstoke, Hants.- but finding them for the few days in the week available is difficult. Which makes me sad because for the couple months I was able to train was really, really interesting and rewarding. Any tips to find what I need?
  2. Hi My name is Greg from France. My girlfriend beguin to study dance at age 17. She is 20 now. To help her get better and to have a professional experience I want to offer to her a summer training in a dance school in Moscou (Russia). Because she is not a professional dancer I don't think she can enter in a great school like the Bolchoi. So I want to know if any of you know a dance school in Moscou (or in St-Petesterbourg) that accept international student for a summer training ? I really want to help her to be better in dance that's why I think this experience can create
  3. Would anyone be able to recommend a daytime class in London on Monday? I’m there next week and hoping to drop in somewhere as my classes have a full week off! Roughly around low intermediate level, similar to David Kierce’s improvers plus class that he does at central? I’m getting better at picking up combinations but not incredibly fast at it quite yet so someone who doesn’t do anything insanely complicated! I spotted possibly either a beginner or intermediate class at London Russian ballet school, or an afternoon class I think it was with Adam at Danceworks if anyone has any firs
  4. Hi all, I’m looking for a recommendation for a ballet school in west London (W9, W2, W11, NW8) or Central London for a seven-year old. She is scheduled to do Primary RAD in March 2020 and I’d like to change school after this date. I’m open re syllabus. An organised school who do not do Christmas shows etc would be great. Thank you in advance (and if there is an archive of old posts where I should research this topic I’d be grateful to be pointed in that direction). Thank you again, T
  5. As I will be heading over to the UK from America, I am curious to research about any places in greater London that... 1) run male technique classes for amateur adults 2) offer pas de deux training sessions 3) have good selections of dance wear for adult males (not online)
  6. I have recently moved to London and would like to commence my child at a ballet school in London that provides good technique as well as dance quality and has a high success rate in the children progressing to vocational schools such as White Lodge. I find the Internet has a wealth of schools but it is very difficult to know which schools will provide her with the best training should she wish to continue as a dancer when she is older. In addition, it seems many of the schools have their own syllabus or are performance based rather than teach RAD, Vaganova or Cechetti. Is it better to send her
  7. HI, my daughter is relocating from Australia to Leeds to take up a place at NSCD. She was supposed to be taking her RAD Advanced 2 exam before she leaves but her studio has just received their exam dates and it is too late for her. We are investigating the possibility of transferring her exam to the UK and wondering if anyone can recommend a good ballet school in Leeds who could facilitate this? Doing the exam earlier here is not an option, unfortunately. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hello everyone, This is my first post on the forum. My family and I are relocating to Norwich and I have a couple of questions re dance schools. First of all for myself, where in the city is good for advanced adult lessons in tap, ballet, jazz and contemporary? I am also looking for a dance school for my two young daughters, they are currently at an RAD dance school but I’m happy to change syllabus. I’m looking for somewhere with a high standard of teaching but with a friendly and nurturing atmosphere and not too much of a focus on competitions.
  9. Disclaimer: I understand there is many threads on topics talked about here but I just needed to collate them, and I do not know exactly where I was meant to post this, or what tags...Just chose two which would prompt the best outcome (an ISTD adult class in Glasgow). Hi, I am a 17 year old male, (well would be 18 when this is relevant) anyway, so I'm currently doing Grade 6 ISTD (will be doing the exam this summer), I have been dancing since I was 7 doing grades 1-2 with RAD but started ISTD at 11 with a different teacher as I did not like her. But I do not wish a career in dance, so I am
  10. My daughter 11, would like to start ballet again - she had lessons from 3-7 years. We live in London, and I am currently looking at Central School of Ballet (Clerkenwell) and London Ballet School (N4). They both seem good, and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations and advice. She is very keen to build up her strength to eventually do pointe work, also. She would like to go to both, but would that be advisable?
  11. I've taken the liberty of starting a new thread to answer this post, as requests for ideas/info about classes is tending to get lost in the sort of blogging of our daily dance lives that's in the other Adult Dance thread. I wonder if the Mods could pin this thread, so the adult learner/dancers can easily find it when we're looking for classes? Anyway: Saturday morning in Birmingham - if you're relatively confident and not a beginner, there's nowhere else to go but Jane Rosier's class at Annette Nicholson's new facility near the Custard Factory in Digbeth. Actually there probably ar
  12. Hi, I am looking with my boyfriend to move from London that we currently live. We haven't yet decided the place but certainly, our choice will depend on a place that has Adult ballet classes as it's very important for me. I have been dancing for years but the last few months I have started ballet so I am in Beginner stage and sometimes I go to Improvers. So it would be important the school or academy to not have just one hour per week but 2-3 at least. The only school I have found till now is Dance Exchange in Birmingham. Thanks in advance
  13. Hi, I am looking for a regular non-syllabus classical ballet class for my 10 year old son preferably taught by a male teacher with good training credentials. We live in the Portsmouth area so I am happy to drive but not more than an hour. Failing this are there any really good male ballet teachers in the Hampshire area that might offer individual tuition. Thank you.
  14. Hello, I’m considering a change of dance school for my 2 DDs due to some recurring issues where they are now. Does anyone have any recommendations for dance schools in the Leeds and Bradford areas? Thanks 😃
  15. Hi balletcoers My DD is off to.medical school in Sheffield in Sept and is very keen to find an adult ballet class. She has been doing ballet since age 3, more recently Vaganova but don't think she's overly fussed, and is very keen to find a friendly local class that isn't at too advanced (the adult vaganova class she's been doing works more on strength and getting good basics than the more flashy moves so for example she wouldn't be able to do double pirouettes). Any suggestions would be very gratefully received. Many thanks 😊
  16. Due to a number of scheduling factors for the autumn term my DD wont be able to get to classes in the week at her current school. Can anyone recommend a good school in central or South London with classes Grade 5 and above? I have a little one too so difficult to travel too far in the week. RAD, ISTD or free syllabus is fine. Just somewhere with good teachers and an opportunity to progress to higher classes. Thanks in advance!
  17. I'm looking for a teacher who would provide private coaching as a complement to my dd's syllabus Grade 3/Standard 4 class. Her teacher is going away for the summer and is currently unable to provide private classes. We're in Milton Keynes, but could get to either London or Birmingham or anything along the train line between Euston and Birmingham. Oxford may also be a possibility. Also, I would like some advice on what to do when a beloved teacher suddenly seems to lose interest, despite the good results in exams and competitions. After a year of inspiring collaboration, she seems t
  18. Hi, Does anyone have any experience with Danceworks (London)? We are considering signing our daughter (who is 7) up for their 2 week summer intensive but would really value some advice. Many thanks!
  19. Can anyone recommend a good RAD teacher who does private tuition for Intermediate Foundation/Advanced exams please in the Essex area?
  20. Im wondering if anybody can point me in the direction of a quality ballet teacher or ballet classes in Shrewsbury/Birmingham for a Sunday or possibly Saturday late afternoon? thank you in advance
  21. I wondered if anyone would be interested in this. We have persuaded our teacher to let us work towards the Grade 3 RAD ballet exam as an adult ballet group (all ages and sizes) and she has agreed! It's a fun little group and we may not succeed, but we just want to give it a go! If you are interested, it is in North Somerset, so might suit you if you are in the Weston super Mare, Bristol, Taunton area. If you are interested, I will send you details.
  22. I run a ballet school in London and in the past my higher level/older pupils and I have had difficulty finding enough classes at this level (partly due to hall availability and finding enough committed pupils to cover costs). I am referring to Intermediate Foundation / Intermediate level classes (including non syllabus and body conditioning and stretch). In the past it has been necessary to outsource my pupils to other teachers/classes in London. But I am delighted to announce that this has changed recently, and I have managed to secure some more hall space and have some very committed pupi
  23. Hi Mums and dancers, Wondering if you can help my son and me? DS has been dancing for two years with his local school and now needs more. He has 3, 45 minute classes a week and never stops at home, in Asda, on the bus etc etc! Last academic year he just missed out on Elmhurst and RBS Associates. This year he is too old for RBS JA’s! What else can he do? His current school have a showcase this year so haven’t had a syllabus class all year. Been in touch with s The Hammond who say their boys day of dance is over subscribed. EYB is too far away to be do able. How
