The casting for the Bolshoi’s summer season at the ROH is now posted on the ROH website. Some unexpected pleasures, and a few (not unexpected) disappointments.
My daughter and her emerging small company are running a one day dance workshop in the summer and it would be wonderful if some forum members’ dancers could join her. It is aimed at 9 - 14 year olds and will be held in Henley-on-Thames on 29th August. They have based the workshop on their current piece and the focus will be contemporary, although no contemporary experience will be necessary as they will be adapting it to meet a variety of levels to cater for everyone who signs up. They will do a class, learn some rep and do a creative session - all with two professional dancers and a live musician - so I’m hoping it will be an enjoyable and constructive day. Please do message me with an email address if this is of interest and I will pass your details on to her, or I can answer basic questions myself! (I have reposted this as the age range has changed and I wanted to be sure to catch everyone.)
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.
