  1. My DS had been doing ballet for 4 years and wants to be a professional dancer and for us vocational training at year 7 wasn't an option he's now in year 8 were thinking of auditioning for a year 10 place or sixth form place. His current dance school has been great but has little experience with boys they are heavily focussed on girls and in particular at his age and grade the girls going on Pointe so they now have extra lessons and he's now down to 3 hours a week. How many hours should they be training at this age? How do I find somewhere to help him progress and push him to his his full potential?? Any tips or recommendations for schools in the East Midlands greatly received.
  2. Could anyone recommend a Summer School for all types of dance not just ballet, we are Midlands based but willing to travel, many thanks
  3. Myself and a colleague are running 3 days of 'back to school' dance training in CENTRAL Birmingham at a bargain price of £100 for 3 days! (Considering how much I normally charge these days this is a total steal!!!!!!!!!!) Seriously though - I will be teaching all day, every day on this course and will focus on placing and technique, strength, safe flexibility, injury prevention as well as teaching all of the tips I have learnt from people like Rebecca Davies, Tahlysia Smedley and Rosina Andrews to get you turning more easily, jumping higher and doing all those fun leaps and tricks SAFELY! (Includes classes in Progressing Ballet Technique) It is open to ANY dancer from age 8 upwards - and I can also accommodate private coaching time for anyone who is looking for help with something specific, or wants to learn some exercises to help with their dancing or prevent injury. To apply just complete a registration form on www.midas-dance.org.uk - no payment will be needed until the first day of the course. **** VENUE: Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre, Aston University B4 7ET - Walking distance from the stations*******
  4. Just thought I'd post as I haven't noticed anyone else mention it yet, the MIDAS audition applications are now live on their website for auditions end of May early June.....good luck to anyone auditioning Website link for anyone interested ~ http://www.midas-dance.org.uk
  5. There are a small number of places now available for year 5 and 6 students to begin on this monthly supplementary training scheme from September. Due to the school holidays there will NOT BE A LIVE AUDITION, but interested applicants are being asked to send a short video and photographs (details upon request). For those unfamiliar with the scheme, students spend 2 and a half hours each month training intensively on classical ballet technique, music, artistry, strength, flexibility, stamina and power. Half of the session has a classical ballet focus, with a pianist from Elmhurst School, and the other half of the session has a more jazz/contemporary focus. While both sessions involve body conditioning exercises, the majority take place in the second half of the sessions. Students also focus on a range of turns and leaps. To apply, email director@midas-dance.org.uk for further details. Please do share this information with your dance teachers or friends with DC you feel may benefit from this type of training. Many thanks!
