  1. “Summer School 2022 - Are you interested in applying for a place at Northern Ballet School, an international centre of excellence in training for classical ballet and musical theatre? Our free summer course offers you a taste of what that training is really like. This two-day course will introduce you to the building and facilities and some of the tutors. It will help to build your technique and performance, gain confidence and meet like-minded people. You will also get to watch our NBS Summer Show dress rehearsal in The Dancehouse Theatre on Thursday 7th, getting a real flavour of life as an NBS student and the performance opportunities given”
  2. Hi all, can’t find any thread related to 6th form auditions so thought I post a quick question instead of just reading DD did her Northern Ballet school audition today but forgot to ask how long until results are out. Before I contact them, does anyone know what to expect? Also as they did interviews and solos, I’m guessing they don’t do finals but she didn’t ask and they didn’t say. Thanks in advance
  3. Hello, first time post from a nervous Dad... My daughter has accepted a place at Northern Ballet School for September 2021. The euphoria of getting in is now giving way to anxiety about living away from home in the middle of Manchester at 16! Especially the accommodation, sharing the building with older students etc. So I wondered if anyone else on here has a child going there? And anyone who is there now or has been there recently who could offer any advice about the accommodation in particular - and anything else too! Many thanks.
  4. Just looking for some opinions. My dd has been offered places at KS Dance & Northern Ballet Manchester she wants to presue the classical route. We are having a really hard time choosing between them as there are pros & cons at both schools. So looking for any advice on which school would be the best option for her to presue classical.
  5. Can anyone recommend the best hotel to stay in (location/parking/budget) near to NBS please?
  6. Please ask questions about Upper School/6th Form auditions in this thread. Do also make use of the "search" facility (top right of the forum pages) in case your question has been asked before. :-) I apologise for not tagging all Upper Schools but tags are limited in number. If anyone has questions or info about auditions at schools not listed, please do post anyway. Thanks, Spanner
  7. Hi all. Has anyone heard from NBS after their audition on the 20th November? Thank you.
  8. 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!!
  9. Does anybody have any experience of this summer school? My 15 year old daughter is keen to go but I’m reluctant to sign her up as she won’t know anybody and she will need to stay in accommodation provided as we live too far away to commute. Classes finish at 4pm so I’m wondering what they do in the evening? The last day to register is tomorrow as I’m leaving it all to the very last minute........ Thank you in advance
  10. 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 where we live so I don't really want to go to a lot of expense etc for something that is very possibly a non starter. I know there supposed to be more of a move toward moving away from the classic and favoured ballet shape but from what I have seen albeit limited, ballet schools still do tend to favour a particular look and dare I say it (awaits backlash) this sometimes seems to be prioritised over talent and ability.
  11. 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!
  12. Has any one heard if the dada results are out yet for the northern ballet school or when they are usually sent out.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. My dd is currently in Year 10 and is thinking of auditioning for full time training at 16. I am a bit clueless about the various schools and the process and hope to get some advice on here from you knowledgeable people! Ok so firstly when should she start looking at schools and when are the auditions? Do the schools have open days? She has done ballet since the age of 3 but has also added in modern, tap and jazz in recent years and enjoys these as much so she would like a school which teaches dance other than ballet. She is thinking of Ballet Theatre UK and Northern Ballet but I have no idea about these schools and what they offer. Where else should she look? Do schools offer A levels alongside dance training? What is the quality of education like? She's a bright girl currently in at an academic school and I would like her to get some A levels too. How competitive is the process at this stage and is there anything special she should be doing now to prepare? And finally if it doesn't work out and she doesn't get in anywhere, are there opportunities for full time training post 18? And would Dance A Level be useful?
  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. Hi I just wanted to wish everyone starting nbs today good luck ! And enjoy the next 3 years of dance college !
  18. What is the audition process like and the standard for Northern ballet school and how many students do they take for the first year of upper schools? Thank you,I'm new to this forum!
  19. Does anyone know of a list of the destinations of this years Graduates?
  20. I am shopping for uniform ready for dd to start in September. I notice on the website that that the associates track pants and jacket are jogging suit material but the cat and open class suit is microfibre. Do we stick to the correct suit for the type of class or can I go for the microfibre one? I do prefer the microfibre fabric ?
  21. My dd is attending with a few others from her dance school to participate with others from local dance schools in an afternoon of dance tomorrow. I am try gutted I can not go to watch as have work commitments. She however is very excited. Is anyone else's dc attending?
  22. Hi everyone my daughter is starting NBS in Manchester this September . She has asked me to post to ask for any ifno regarding uniform, start and finishing times for year one and any other helpful information. She is too impatient to wait !!! As I'm sure the school will send all this info out nearer the time - but try telling a 16 year to wait !! Thanks in advance x
