  1. Has anyone’s child been to the Paris Opera Ballet summer intensive before? I’m wondering what a typical daily schedule looks like?
  2. Looking at this & rather confused....maybe I have missed something Am I right that for selection process you can choose to either send in an audition video or attend alive audition? For latter it states that you must write preferred date/venue on application form & refers you to audition page on website for dates. These dates seem surely to relate just to entry for Full Time Training? Or are these for Summer School also? From people's past experience, by roughly what time do people hear if they have been selected for SS? I imagine it to be a case of the sooner accommodation is booked, the cheaper it is..... And are there are scholarships/funding routes at all? Ever hopeful
  3. Hello does anyone know of any ballet summer schools or intensive workshops in the summer holidays in the south east? Asking for my 8 year old daughter, who will go spare without ballet over the long break.
  4. I was just wondering if anyone’s child has done the RAD summer school before (and done the residential)? We’ve been offered a cancellation for my daughter, who’s just turned 9, and has just taken her grade 2 RAD. It’s a lot of money, but I think she would enjoy it (she was keen when we looked before, then found it was fully booked), but my only concern is that 9 is quite young for the residential aspect, but on the other hand, I can see they would get most of out of it socially by staying. Would appreciate any experience anyone may have on this.
  5. My daughter goes to ballet boost. She thoroughly enjoys it. It is not something that her dance school suggested. She applied and auditioned herself although got her teachers permission. Her teacher is keen for her to audition for York Dance Scholars. She admittedly doesnt know too much about ballet boost due to it being quite new but has had a number of students over the years attend YDS. I suppose my question is does anyone have any good ...or bad experience of BB or YDS...or even better does anyone have any experience of both and are able to advise on differences? I have no idea if she is good enough to get in at YDS but if she does I don't know how to choose! Thanks x
  6. Hi, I wondered if anyone has any experience of the Dutch National summer school? My DD has been offered a place but it's eye-wateringly expensive as accommodation is extra on top. Is it worth saving for though? Frustratingly, we have to commit before we find out about other schools so not sure what to do.
  7. Iam over in Australia but wonder if a website/list/topic already on here exists of all summer schools offered in dance in the uk..... looking at UK summer 2018 for a 11 year old dance crazy girl So far iam aware of RBS Elmhurst Yorkshire ballet summer school do others exist which are RAD ballet focused? any tips wrt numbers applying for these would be very helpful thanku x
  8. Dear ALL We are extremely honoured and excited to announce that Director, Oliver Matz from Tanz Akademie Zurich will be joining our International Summer Schools in 2019. Possibly one of the most influential teachers/directors on the planet. Oliver travels the globe sharing his knowledge, judging the BIGGEST competitions in the world, successfully training the winners of many major competitions. He is an extremely busy, and important figure in the Ballet World today, and to have him choose 'Woodside Dance Retreat' as his only UK Summer School in 2019 is a big deal. A BIG, BIG, DEAL. If you have not secured a Summer School for 2019, then please email nicola@woodsidedanceretreat.com to get the final few places and ask about our payment plan to help spread the cost until next summer. Oliver Matz will join our already confirmed incredible line up below to share his extensive knowledge for a full day with our lucky 12 students:- Edward Watson MBE (Principal Dancer Royal Ballet Company) Ricardo Cervera (Ballet Master Royal Ballet Company) Anita Young (Royal Ballet Company and RBS) ONLY 12 students. Be seen by, helped by, and work with some of the best teachers/professionals in the business. Don't be stuck in a room of 35-40 and disappear to the background. Personal care, personal correction in a warm and friendly learning environment. Be the best you can be. Plus a few little extra's as normal :- 2 x professional photo shoots, one on location. 1 x West End theatre trip and return by Limo. Course fee's £1,395.00. We are not the cheapest Summer School, but we feel we offer something incredible, personal and a once in a life time experience which could change your dance career forever. We hope to hear from you soon Many thanks Nicola Moriarty Principal
  9. Hi my daughter wants to apply for the RBS spring intensive and summer school for 2019. She isnt bothered which one she attends if she is even lucky enough to receive a place (she knows its a huge long shot). Question I have though ....can we do one application and one application fee to cover all 3 options? Or do we do a seperate application for spring intensive and one for summer school? I have emailed and asked but no reply yet. Also has anyone applied and know when we will be notified of results? Is a week for spring intensive long enough? Has anyone had a child attend? thanks
  10. Hello, I am seeking advice about the Dutch National Ballet School, specifically the summer school, where DD has been offered a place. DD is 17 and studying ballet/contemporary full time but hoping for a place in a tertiary school in Europe next year. She sees herself as more of a contemporary dancer, though she excels at ballet too. We have been told that Dutch National is more classical in character, however note the focus on Wayne McGregor's work at the summer school. Is this a school that is known to make offers from summer school? She would be travelling from Australia so the expense is considerable. Hoping someone here can advise us.
  11. Hi, anyone know of any routes to try source accommodation for a 15 year old DD to enable attendance at ENBS Spring course - & possibly other things over next year too. Ideally to stay with another attendee so travelling to course with another/others. I cannot be there due to work commitments. As course is non residential I am trying all routes to make it possible.... have exhausted friends & family so am now asking the lovely Forum Family to see if anyone out there has the solution as am sure this is a common issue? Mobe thought I had was contributing to the AirBnB or similar cost of another dancing family booking accommodation or a commuting distance attendee whose family may have a spare room they would be happy to rent in bed & board basis? Hope it’s ok to explore this here... Thank you
  12. Hi, Has anybody heard back from ENBS re: Spring Intensive yet? Just wondering when they will send notifications out and if by post/email...or even if you get to hear anything if it’s a No? Applied for DD so fingers crossed. thanks😊
  13. Hi I'm looking for any residential Easter courses suitable for 9+ and due to travelling distance, from Chester down to Bristol. Birmingham is fine also. TIA
  14. Anyone know when you hear back from the RBS Summer School Applications? We've applied for White Lodge SS. I know that hardly anyone gets offered it but I was just wondering 😊
  15. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone was going to dance forward this summer. My DD is and I wondered if anyone is going or has been. I haven’t really heard much about it and am thinking I maybe should have picked a different one for her??
  16. Looking for a residential summer school appropriate for Grade 3 over summer but not between 10th/11th - 25th August. Wanting to test whether able to stay away from home and likes it before deciding on applying for vocational school - anyone any thoughts? Many thanks
  17. I've picked this up via a newsletter from Rambert: A series of workshops, classes and public performances curated by Rambert's Guest Artistic Director Benoit Swan Pouffer. http://www.rambert.org.uk/join-in/summer-at-rambert/
  18. Dear All GO BACK TO SCHOOL IN TIP TOP CONDITION. We have had a few enquires about our 3 day ballet intensives at the end of August. Unfortunately we are fully booked this year, however on looking at everyones term timetables, most vocational students don't go back to their schools until the 8th/9th September. Course fee's £395 including 2 nights accommodation and all food/drinks etc. So we are running and Extra 3 day intensive this year on the 4th/5th/6th September. So if you have not been able to do to much training over the holiday period or just want that final boost before heading back to RBS, Elmhurst, Tring, YDA etc, then please give us some thought. We will be running 3 full days of classes focusing on getting everyone back to full fitness, working on flexibility and of course that technique. You will also have one to one time with me to discuss any problem areas which your teachers have highlighted, and I hope I can offer some advice to put your mind at ease or give you some excusers to help you out. It may be your Audition year, or your assessments etc. If it is, then do not delay. ONLY 12 places. Please email me nicola@woodsidedanceretreat.com for more details. I hope if you are reading this you have heard good things about our courses, but if you have any concerns, then just email and we can talk more. All the best, and hope to see some more of you all in September. Kind regards Nicola Moriarty Principal
  19. Hi My dd wants to do a summer school this year as she finds it a long time to not dance "properly" as she calls it, over the summer. I have a couple of questions. It is local to us so she would be a day student, as well as she is only 9 years old.....would she miss out on anything in the evening if she didn't board? Finally it's over two weeks but we can only do the second week as the first week is still school term for us. Again will she miss out on anything from the first week? Thanks everyone!!! Edited as I don't know the order of the months of the year!!!!!!!
  20. Can anyone recommend some adult summer courses/ retreats this summer? Any weekends in UK or suggestions would be greatly received. I'm sad to say I can't do the Chelsea Ballet as it's the one week I'm away with my children. Thank you
  21. Hi gang, Just wondered if I could pick your brains about SS. DS has read about them and is keen but I don’t want him to be out of his depth! Can anyone advise of any that would accommodate him? He’s 10, and has stayed away from home before but not for more than 4 nights. Been dancing for 2 years, top of grade 2 now but was unsuccessful at vocational school audition for year 7. Would love for him to have a really good, positive experience. Cost not that important as long as he has a good time and location as near to the M6 corridor as poss. Thank you...👍👍👍
  22. Hi everyone, This summer (July 16-July 27) I’ll go to ENB summer course, there is someone that will take part to the summer course who’s looking for a flat to share in the school area?
  23. When I joined this forum I was committed to keeping post regular and interesting! Fail!! Life, motherhood and extra teaching has put a stop to that! However I have just finished a wonderful 6 months at Rambert School and now finally have a minute to think and communicate! If your dancers aged 8+ and up to 16 years of age are looking for some summer performance fun! And you can commute to Highbury, North London, then do consider my 'Summer Sensations' workshop weeks in August. There are plenty of big name summer schools that will aim to boost your technique; and so my weeks are performance weeks... a little treat which will boost your STAGE PRESENCE and your CONFIDENCE and remind you, if you need, that ballet is GREAT FUN!! (well yes ok I will boost your technique too, I can't help it!) We have so much fun and you will be entertained and amazed at how much we can create in 5 days when you watch the performance/s at the end of the week/s. These workshops are suitable for vocational and non-vocational dancers; I do have children from vocational schools joining me (White Lodge, YDA, Italia Conti, Tring, Royal Ballet MAs etc) but I also am pleased to meet non-vocational children who are dancing purely for fun... a wonderful time is had by all. I am pretty sure there are some parents and dancers on this forum who can validate this for me Please do email for further information and/or to book. There is a £50 discount for anyone booking before May 1st 2018 BACK TO TRAINING IN AUGUST I also have a back to training week in August. This runs for 5 half days and consists of YOGA for dancers, a Ballet class (with me!) plus a gentle stretch. Venue to be confirmed. Happy Dancing one and all and do get in touch Sarah
