  1. Hi all. Has anyone heard from NBS after their audition on the 20th November? Thank you.
  2. Long shot but if anyone has a dd or ds starting at NBS in September would you like to get in touch? Thought it would be good for them to make contact and may also help in sorting out accommodation!!
  3. Hi all. My DD is looking for a ballet shop that would be easy to get to from Manchester Piccadilly using either the tram or train, on a Saturday. She desperately needs new soft blocks and would like to try different brands preferably at a one stop shop. Any suggestions with opening times gratefully received. Thank you. šŸ™†ā€ā™€ļø
  4. Hi. My daughter was at a workshop recently and a dancer/choreographer who works regularly with The Northern ballet pulled her aside and encouraged her to audition for their summer school. She loves ballet and has a good technique but because she is more of a sporty/ jazz dance shape she has avoided applying for specialist ballet summer schemes as she feels that they are very selective when it comes to body shape etc. I just wondered if anyone has any experience of The Northern Ballet school in relation to this as I assume there is a cost involved in auditioning and it's several hours from whe
  5. Hi Iā€™m looking for recommendations for dance physios in the North West England as my DD is away at dance college in Preston, has a foot injury and would benefit from some expertise! Many thanks šŸ˜Š

  7. I just wondered if anyone has a child who will be starting at NBS in September? My daughter is 16 and will be staying in New Medlock House, I though it might be a good idea to get pupils in touch before they go... make it less daunting!
  8. Has any one heard if the dada results are out yet for the northern ballet school or when they are usually sent out.
  9. Does anyone no how many dadas northern ballet school have to give out this year and also if they give scholarships. My daughter has been offered a place for September and just wondering what the odds are on getting a dada at 16. She wouldn't be able to accept a place without this.
  10. Can anyone recommend any masterclasses or summerschools in the Manchester area. My daughter is 10. Ballet is preferable but she likes all styles!
  11. I like, from time to time, keeping up to date with what's happening with my two former schools; Northern, which I attended from when I was aged between 12 and 15 and Urdang, which I was at from age 16. Just been on Northern Ballet School's website and had a look at their Graduate lists. I can't seem to find any info on the graduate destinations for the last two years. Are they listed somewhere else or have they not been listed, for some reason?
  12. Hi its very likely ny husband will be in the Crewe/manchester/liverpool area next week (we live in New Zealand). What are the danceshops he should be visiting to buy for our aspiring ballerina? Thanks
  13. Does anyone have any experience of this dance school? My dd age 7 attends a small local dance school which she loves but they only have 1 class for her grade and she is asking to do more. I am hoping that she can do her regular class and an extra class at Centre Pointe if her current dance teacher allows.
  14. Last Thursday I was invited to the Creative Industries Federation EU Response Event at Manchester Metropolitan University. Over 45 individuals were on the attendance list from design, education, fashion, museums, publishing, local authorities and most of the performing arts. The big exception was dance and although I think I had been invited in my capacity as an intellectual property lawyer I championed the dance industry as a dance blogger as there was nobody else to do so. Even though the meeting took place in the Ormond Building which is about 100 yards from the Dancehouse Theatre and t
  15. I have particular reason to be grateful to the Northern Ballet School in Manchester because I attend class in its studios with KNT at least once a week. Two of my favourite teachers in Leeds trained at that school as well as all my teachers in Manchester. The school hosts The Dancehouse theatre which is one of our city's institutions and the Manchester City Ballet which remains for the moment the only resident classical company in our city. The school has two focuses, namely classical ballet and musical theatre, At the end of each year the school stages a show for its talented students calle
  16. Anyone on here with current or recent experience of training at NBS Manchester? Any information on the standard of teaching, timetable, accommodation, graduate destinations etc. would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.
  17. My niece is looking for a decent school for her daughters in the Manchester area. They live in Didsbury and are looking more for an all-round training school rather than a ballet specific school, because the girls love musical theatre. However, they definitely want serious training, where they'll actually learn something, because they realise now how important technique is. The older one who is 9 has been going to a school round the corner from them, but sadly has rather been wasting her time there. Nuff said. Any suggestions will be gratefully received and passed on. Thanks a lot!
