  1. Can anyone suggest a good tap class in Central/South London please? Ds wants to keep up his tap while studying Contemporary Dance (1 year Graduate Diploma) at Trinity Laban. He’s roughly Adv1/Adv2 standard and has Friday afternoons or anytime Saturdays/Sundays. A syllabus class would be ideal as he wants to teach eventually but any recommendations welcome. Thanks for the help.
  2. 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 to a school with exams and 1 of these methods?
  3. Hi My daughter has now graduated from Durham , she had a great time there both socially and academically and with her dance. She danced for a number of the DU dance teams, choreographed and danced in the Advanced Ballet team and also danced in the University Ballet Company. I would highly recommend Durham for those who want to still dance but for whatever reason don't end up pursuing it as a career. She is going to Imperial College in October to do her Masters so will be looking into her options for dance in London. There are dance societies at Imperial and shes aware RAD do run some external dance classes. Can anyone help with any further info or details,she is especially interested in doing her Advanced Ballet cert having passed Intermediate 3 years ago. Thanks.
  4. As I know lots if you frequent the Covent garden area I'm looking for child friendly places to eat in & around Covent Garden. Definatly has to be somewhere that does very plain, simple pub type food. The kids like pizza & pasta but I don't. Some places do steak but it will be very expensive to eat steak every night in London. The places I've found where I will eat don't have a kids menu & the places that do have a kids menu the adult food is too fancy!
  5. We’re heading to London for DD’s first pair of pointe shoes. A very exciting rite of passage as I must admit I am a bit jealous as I never had the opportunity to go en pointe when I did ballet way back when. Am I right in thinking Dancia, Bloch and Freed are the places we should go to? Would it be better to go to Dancia first as an over view as such and then if they suggest Bloch or Freed shoes, to go to the specific brand shops? Are there any other dance shops worth trying in central London? Any other first pair shopping tips? Should we get elastic and ribbon or see what the fitters suggest? Does one generally get ouch pouches for first shoes or try starting off with lambs wool or something else?
  6. 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)
  7. 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?

  9. 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
  10. 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 first hand experience with these? Thanks!
  11. Hi, We are going to London at the end of August & I was wondering if anyone could recommend any drop in ballet classes suitable for a 13 year old currently studying RAD advanced 1 ballet but also interested in contemporary? I have been looking at Pineapple & Danceworks although I understand a lot of the classes are aimed towards adults so I was wondering firstly if there were any classes that she be allowed to attend & secondly I am unsure what level of class would be best suited to her. Thanks
  12. Hi all Looking for recommendations for a quick bite to eat before the Proms - something I've always struggled with. Occasionally treat ourselves to a cocktail and sandwich downstairs in the Albert Hall but can't sustain that for everyday living! Similarly the Barbican. I like the pancake house but I'm sure there are better (and cheaper) places in the area - but my knowledge of that bit of London is not good.
  13. 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!
  14. Hi there Can anyone give any insight to the central preps audition please. What sort of things are the dancers asked to do, are they in big groups, etc etc. Interested to hear others experiences and where Parents went whilst waiting ? Thank you
  15. Hello my name is Sabrina I need a room with cooking facilities from 15 to 28 July during ENB summer school. Can you help me?
  16. Though not strictly ballet, can we discuss a west end show on this forum. If so, can I talk about a performance whilst still in preview, or do we wait until after official first night?
  17. 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!
  18. Dd has eventually made her decision and accepted her offer from Central so we are now looking at accommodation. I believe a lot of students stay at Liberty Living. Are there any forum members thinking of Liberty House which seems the closest to the school? All require sharing. Any insights into how you find a like minded roomie? I am quite stressed at the prospect of sorting this out as it's so important to get it right!

  20. 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 pupils who are attending regular classes at my venue, the Broomwood Methodist Church hall, where I now run classes at Intermediate Foundation/ Intermediate/ Body Conditioning and Stretch, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Four of my pupils are currently attending the Royal Ballet Associate classes too and they have found the extra classes very helpful. I have some wonderful teachers Cecchetti/RAD/Vaganova managing these lessons; and we are keen to promote our classes as we feel that high level classes for this standard in London can be difficult to find. If you are a parent looking for more classes please feel free to get in touch; if you are a teacher and would like to work collaboratively to help your pupils progress I would be happy to discuss a 'working relationship' with you. angelina@vacani.com , The Vacani School of Dance
  21. Hi, Currently looking for a budget friendly hotel for next weekend. DD attending ENBS Audition workshop on the Monday. We arrive at Gatwick late on Saturday, so any suggestions around Victoria Train Station area would be appreciated. Tried researching for hotels on Booking.com but with so many on the site it is challenging to know what's best. Appreciate any personal recommendations. Thank you
